Pet Insurance, Is it Worth It ?

February 2nd, 2017

Yes, pet insurance IS worth it.. Pet insurance covers those medical issues with pets that are “out of the ordinary” care of the pet, not regular “maintenance”, so to speak. Vaccines, for example, would not be covered, but an ear infection would be covered. Pet insurance has been around for many years. Pet insurance helps provide peace of mind in case the unfortunate should happen. Its purpose is to help cover the costs of unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur in the future. It’s not unusual for a dog who has torn his Cruciate Ligament while playing fetch with his owner to have to undergo $4000 – $5500 worth of surgery. With insurance, the cost to the owner would only be less than $500. Unfortunately, it will not cover any current conditions your pet may have which are known as pre-existing conditions. This means that you should insure your pet as soon as you get him/her. Pet insurance is for those who want to provide their pet the best medical care possible with less worry about cost. When your insured pet becomes sick or injured, you take him to the veterinary hospital for treatment. You then submit your invoice along with the pet health insurance claim form to be reimbursed at a percentage, less your chosen deductible. It helps provide financial peace of mind and can help pet owners with the difficult decision of treatment vs. ‘economic’ euthanasia. Policies keep getting better and better and allowing for more thorough coverage. All the policies have their positives and negatives, but the positive definitely outweighs the negative when something actually happens to your pet and you don’t have to shell out thousands out of your pocket!! So whether you pick Trupanion, Pet secure or Pets + Us or somebody else your pet is covered, you won’t regret it!
