Economic Euthanasia and How A Veterinarian Wants to Help

Economic euthanasia is a term veterinarians use to describe the circumstance involving a pet getting put to sleep because the owner can’t afford the care and treatment for the pet’s medical condition. Dr. Debra Primovic, editor in chief of, says “Economic euthanasia is very common and a frustrating part of being a veterinarian. As a vet, you want to help every pet and fix their problems but some pet parents just can’t afford the care their pet needs causing thousands of pets to be euthanized every month.”

That is why many veterinarians, including Dr. Marty Becker, (who many refer to as “America’s Veterinarian”), are on a mission to help protect pets and raise awareness of pet health insurance. Becker, who has over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian, has appeared on Good Morning America and The Dr. Oz Show.

Dr. Becker has seen it all when it comes to veterinary medicine. And, unfortunately, he’s seen his fair share of owners putting their pets down when faced with unexpected vet bills. That’s why Dr. Becker has decided to help spread the word that affordable pet insurance can eliminate the need for that terrible choice.

Dr. Becker says, “I don’t want this to happen to any pet, which is why I’m a firm advocate for pet health insurance. Pet Insurance makes it so that you never have to say, ‘I can’t afford that, Doc, you’ll have to put him down.'”

What would you do if you were faced with an unexpected $3,000, or even $5,000, medical bill for your pet? Could you afford it? If you would want the best for your pet but would have a difficult time affording the cost of the medical care he needs, please consider pet insurance. It can help you do what’s best for your pet without having to consider the cost of treatment.
