You may kid yourself into thinking that they are “just a dog”, but the truth is you love them like family. So, when something happens to them you want to do the right thing and rush them to the vet office. Then comes the realization that the cost could be thousands of dollars and you stubbornly tell yourself again that they are “just a dog”. But when the time comes, your heart will be broken and will never repair. The guilt over losing your best friend because you couldn’t afford a procedure will stay with you for a lifetime.
The best veterinary care doesn’t come cheap. Pet parents without insurance often settle for less effective treatments because of high costs, compromising the health of their pets. With pet insurance paying the bill, money is never a problem for you. Not only do you get the best care possible, but the big pay off is the peace of mind knowing that you have done everything possible for your BFF.
One of the pet insurance companies that I often talk about with my clients is called PETPLAN. Although I am not personally experienced with their service, I do know that this insurance seems to cover many things that other insurance companies do not.
For example, they cover costs for:
- Veterinary exams visits for injury or illness
- Cancer treatments like chemotherapy
- Surgery & physical rehab
- Hereditary diseases like hip dysplasia
- Periodontal disease & dental injuries
- Chronic conditions like ear infections
- Prescription medication
They also will cover up to 90% reimbursement and have unlimited annual coverage.
Best advice is to compare pet insurance companies and pick the one with the most coverage. Consumers Advocate recently did objective research to create a guide – assisting pet owners in the essential points one should consider when making decisions on pet insurance. I figured you might be interested in reading it. I’ve added a link to the full guide below.
But don’t put it off too long or you might be sorry.
