Pet Health Insurance can help pay for veterinary costs if your pet becomes ill or is injured in an accident. In some instances, pet insurance can help with costs if your pet passes away, or is lost or stolen. In cases of emergency it’s not uncommon for a veterinary bill to be over $1000 once medication, diagnostics (blood work, x-ray, ultrasound) and treatments are factored in. If purchased before a pet gets sick, pet insurance can also help with the cost of ongoing care in the cases of long-term illness such as chemotherapy, diabetes or kidney disease.
It is important to do your research before you choose an insurance provider to ensure that the plan you choose is just right for you and your pet’s needs. Many providers offer various levels of protection, and some may even include routine procedures such as dental cleaning. Here are some links to insurance providers to help you get started.
