Trying to figure out if pet insurance is right for you can be difficult. Here is the question…..“Can you afford an unexpected thousand bucks expense?” Or even more? If not, and not many of us can, then you should consider pet insurance.
Medical care for pets, including diagnostic tests and treatment options, is becoming increasingly more sophisticated. Treatments and procedures are now available that were not previously possible. With that comes a price.
For example, a large breed dog with a relatively common life-threatening condition called “bloat” can be hospitalized and treated in many veterinary hospitals and emergency clinics across the country. The cost for this life-saving treatment ranges from $2,000.00 – $5,000.00 (or more). A broken leg requiring fracture repair can range from $500.00 to $2500.00 depending on the specific treatment and where in the country you live. Many pets also undergo treatment for various types of cancer that can require surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy.
Good quality pet care can be costly. And if an unexpected expense would be difficult for your budget, then you should consider pet insurance.
Here are 2 more questions to help you determine if pet insurance is right for you…
- Do you love your pet?
- Do you want the best care for your pet?If you answer is yes to these two questions, again, you should consider pet insurance.As a veterinarian, I love to see pet owners with pet insurance. Pet owners that come to our emergency hospital with pet insurance don’t have the stress of compromising care because of costs. They don’t have to decline treatments or even consider euthanasia due to their limited budgets.
Pet owners with pet insurance have the comfort of knowing they can do the best thing for their pets because they have pet insurance.
There will come a time when your pet needs medical attention. With a pet Insurance policy, you will have peace of mind knowing you have help paying the medical costs for your pet’s accidents, emergencies, poisonings or illnesses – including cancer.
Pet insurance coverage is available for dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets. Optional routine pet insurance coverage is also available, because regular veterinary care is critical to the long-term health of your pet. This includes vaccines and other routine “wellness” care.
With most Pet Insurance providers, you are free to use any licensed veterinarian anywhere, even when you’re away from home.
