Did you know that one in three pets needs unexpected veterinary care in a year?
You may be able to budget for annual expenses like feeding, parasite prevention, vaccinations and annual wellness visits, but you just can’t predict when your pet may have an accident or become ill. Pet insurance can give you peace of mind and allow you to seek the best treatment for your pet – without worrying about the bill.
The AVMA endorses the concept of pet health insurance to help defray the cost of veterinary medical care and we strongly agree with their recommendation.
Many companies offer free trials of varying lengths so you can try out the service with no obligation. If you’re interested in a trial, let us know at your next visit so we can provide you with the appropriate paperwork.
Plans vary widely in both coverage and cost so we encourage you to do your research and find the plan that will fit your budget and your pet’s lifestyle the best. Here are some resources to help you decide which plan is best for you and your pet:
- North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) offers great general information about pet health insurance as well as a list of companies offering insurance plans
- Pawlicy Advisor allows you to enter in some general information about your pet and what kind of coverage you are looking for and will then make recommendations about which company and policy best fits your needs.
- Our Pet Insurance Comparison shows all of the most common plans side to side so you can compare features quickly.
