A Bilateral Condition is a Condition affecting body parts of which the Pet has at least two, one on each side of the body (for example, ears, eyes, knees and elbows). Bilateral Conditions will generally be covered if you have the appropriate level of Cover, and the Condition is not a Pre-existing Condition or subject to a general exclusion.

When applying a limit or exclusion, a Bilateral Condition will be considered a single Condition. For example, if your Pet displays signs or symptoms of an ear Condition in the left ear prior to the Commencement Date of your First Policy Period or during the applicable Waiting Period, a subsequent ear infection in the right ear will still be considered to be a Pre-existing Condition.
