We recommend that all pets be covered under a pet health insurance policy. As veterinary medicine is increasingly employing expensive medical techniques and drugs, and owners have higher expectations for their pet’s health care and standard of living than previously, the market for pet insurance has increased.
Veterinary insurance plans function in the same manner as human health insurance policies. The policy holder pays a small amount of money monthly for coverage, and the agency provides reimbursement for claims filed.
Pet insurance companies are beginning to offer the pet owner more of an ability to customize their coverage by allowing them to choose their own level of deductible or co-insurance. This allows the pet owner to control their monthly premium and choose the level of coverage that suits them the best.
We encourage you to explore your options and decide which pet insurance is right for you and your pet. It is beneficial to choose a policy early in your pet’s life. You will be prepared for the unexpected with pet insurance, and rest assured that your dog or cat will always receive optimal treatment in the unfortunate case of an illness, accident or emergency.
