  • If you are entitled to reimbursement, it will be retroactive, so you will be reimbursed from the date of your application to the program. This date is the date on which the designated institution for your region received all your documents.
  • If you are not entitled to reimbursement, you may be reassessed after correcting the problems raised in your first assessment or if your health status changes.

You can submit another request to the program to be reassessed once every two years for the same dog.
