Pet Health Insurance
A recent survey by the Associated Press found that a significant number of pet owners (41%) are extremely or somewhat worried that they could not afford the medical bills for their sick cat or dog.
Pet health insurance will provide you peace of mind. If you get the right policy, it can be an asset to the health care of that pet and have a significant impact on the bill that results from a visit in an emergency situation.
“Some people can’t afford the treatment so they ask us to euthanize their pet. It’s absolutely horrible.”
“If people had acquired pet insurance before the emergency occurred, they might have been able to move forward with some reasonable treatment to help their pet.”
If you decide to buy, shop around! Pet insurance policies vary greatly from company to company.The only way to know what you’re buying is to get a copy of the policy and see what’s covered – and more importantly, what’s not.
Look very carefully at the fine print so that you’re no surprised when you file a claim.
