13 Reasons to Have Pet Insurance for Your Dog

Pet insurance is growing in popularity as owners learn about the benefits of what having coverage for their pet can mean. Pet insurance can help pet owners pay for costly pet care when their pet becomes ill, is injured, or even for wellness visits such as vaccinations.

13 Reasons to Have Pet Insurance

Here is the list:

  1. You want the best for your dog.
  2. You might not be able to afford a large, unexpected expense.
  3. Early diagnosis is critical. You want to be able to take your pet to the vet at the first sign of a problem, not wait until things get really bad because you’re worried about the cost.
  4. You can see any licensed vet and know you’ll be reimbursed.
  5. Trips to an emergency clinic or a specialist can be expensive. Pet Insurance covers both.
  6. Many pet insurance companies offer discounts if your pet is spayed or neutered, if you have multiple pets on the policy, or if you pay annually.
  7. Wellness care options help you pay for routine care items like flea control, heartworm prevention, and vaccines.
  8. Need to have your pet spayed or neutered? Microchipped? A dental cleaning? Wellness care options can help pay for those too.
  9. Chronic conditions, like allergies and diabetes, may be covered.
  10. Prefer alternative therapies? Many pet insurance companies cover them!
  11. You don’t want to have to dip into savings or rack up credit card debt to pay for your pet’s veterinary care.
  12. Once your pet is covered, they’re covered for life (as long as you continue to pay your premium). You don’t have to worry about them being dropped as they get older or if they have a lot of claims.
  13. Pet insurance is flexible. Most companies allow you to select the coverage that fits both your budget and your needs.

As a veterinarian – I really like how pet insurance helps dog owners do the best for their dogs without worrying about medical care costs. Most veterinarians have euthanized hundreds, if not thousands, of pets because their owners could not afford the care. This is the #1 reason I personally recommend pet insurance. It helps me give the best medical care for my patients.
