Do you need cat and dog health insurance? It's estimated that every 6 seconds a pet owner is faced with a $1000 Vet bill. Unexpected emergencies can be stressful emotionally and financially.
My beloved Yorkie (long gone, but not forgotten) had a medical file a mile long. He had several knee surgeries, chronic ear troubles, pancreatitis, and on and on. Pet insurance made sense and it saved me hundreds if not thousands of dollars over the course of his life.
Later, when I got my dog Luc, he was such a young and healthy guy that it never crossed my mind to get pet insurance. UNTIL recently. Luc woke up in the middle of the night vomiting uncontrollably. He was obviously in distress and of course because it was the middle of the night my only option was to take him to the emergency pet clinic.
Long story short - Luc is just fine. The $1200 worth of tests they took revealed that everything was normal.
Good news: Luc didn't have any of the very scary diseases on the long list of possibilities the Vet tried to prepare me for.
Bad news: I didn't have pet insurance so I was out a lot of money.
All pet owners should research cat and dog health insurance. There are so many options and so many different kinds of coverage that you’re sure to find the right plan for your pet at the right budget. The key is to be prepared so when you’re faced with those tough decisions you can do what’s best for your pet without worrying about breaking the bank.
