Pet Medical Insurance

Sick cat in bed
It makes a whole lot of sense.



It is estimated that a large percentage of the pets who become ill are euthanized for the sole reason that their caretakers can not afford to pay for their veterinary care. This alone is an important reason to spread the word about pet medical insurance.



Because of the escalating costs of veterinary care pet medical insurance is fast becoming an option that more and more pet owners are looking into. Coverage will save you money any way you look at it. Should your pet sustain an injury or become seriously ill there is no telling what the veterinary bills will mount to. It is at times like this that a pet insurance policy is worth its weight in gold. The chart below will give you an idea of what is available. Please check each company's website for more details.

Most pet insurance companies have a large network of veterinarians and animal hospitals across the United States and Canada, and some will allow you to use any veterinarian. Most cover spay/neuter. Some cover dental and wellness visits. Wellness visits consist of immunizations, physical exams, testing for heartworm and other parasites, and dental preventive care.

Because of the growing popularity of pet medical insurance many of the smaller insurance companies are jumping on the bandwagon and are beginning to offer pet medical insurance. Contact your state insurance department for more leads if you want to compare rates.
