This type of policy allows the animal to be insured against these stated perils at a discounted rate. This Limited Animal Mortality Coverage does not include such endorsements as listed below.

Substantiation of Value
This in an endorsement to a mortality policy that allows the insured to increase the agreed value of an insured animal by providing information such as show/performance records, training records, stallion records, foal records or broodmare records. All of this information can be submitted and will be reviewed by an underwriter to determine an increased agreed value on the animal to be insured.
Extended Renewal Protection
This coverage permits the renewal of coverage on a designated animal without the need for a current veterinarian's health certificate if the renewal is for the same use.
Increased Mare Valuation
This coverage applies to a specifically listed covered mare to include the cost of the stud fee for a specific pregnancy. This endorsement will cover the mare during the term of her pregnancy and reduces the limit of insurance to a specified amount at the earliest of live birth, abortion, stillbirth or any other termination of the specified pregnancy.
Accident, Sickness, and Disease Coverage
This endorsement covers stallions that become incapable of servicing mares due to covered infertility, impotence, accident, injury, sickness or disease.
