Imagine that you are out for a walk with your beloved dog Fido. Fido is having a good time, sniffing every tree and stopping at every house when suddenly, he sees something across the street and makes a run for it.  Fido didn’t see the car coming and unfortunately, they did not see him either and now they have hit him. Thankfully Fido is okay, but he did break his leg in the accident.

According to a 2019 survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, 67% of all U.S. households or about 85 million families own a pet. For many of these families, their pets are just as much a part of their family as anyone else. You can just imagine the vet bills that Fido starts to rack up from the emergency visit after the accident to the surgery and follow-ups to fix his leg.  It is overwhelming. However, Fido is a part of your family and of course, you will do what you must do to fix his leg. But imagine how much easier this time would have been if you had pet health insurance for Fido.

Whether they have two legs or four, every family member deserves quality health care. This is where pet health insurance comes into play. Pet health insurance can give you the freedom to use any vet, including specialists and emergency providers. It can also cover most animals from dogs and cats to birds and exotic pets.  

There are many benefits to having a pet insurance plan. These include:

  • Saving money
  • Improved Care
  • Peace of Mind

Pet insurance can save you money in the long run. Without pet insurance, vet bills can get pricey. An office visit can typically run upwards of $150 or more, and that doesn’t include any routine treatments or tests. The bills can add up even more quickly if there is something wrong. Even if your pet isn’t sick, emergency situations can get pricey. Having pet insurance can help to mitigate these costs and maybe even save your pet’s life.

Pet insurance could result in improved care. When an owner is less worried about the cost, a vet can run tests quicker and give a more accurate and timely diagnosis. This means faster treatment for your pet and more options for families.

Insurance for your pet can give you peace of mind. By purchasing a policy, you are helping to ensure that you can care for your pet if their health fails.

Now that you know about the benefits, how do you purchase pet insurance?

You can start by speaking with your vet. Since your vet is an expert on your pet, they can let you know about any conditions, concerns, or other potential problems you will want to look out for. This discussion can help you to look for a policy that will best address any issues. Next, you will want to speak with your independent agent to get a quote. They can help you navigate the options and select a plan that is best for your specific pet needs and resources.
