Pet Insurance

What is pet insurance?
Much like health insurance for human beings, pet insurance provides coverage for the veterinarian visits, medicine, and other medical treatment costs incurred while caring for your dog or cat.

Do you need pet insurance?
Your pet is like a family member and has health needs just like everyone else. They can fall, get diabetes and cancer, or need even need surgery. Many pet owners are faced with financial decisions that come along with both routine and out of the ordinary care. Ask yourself how you will feel about a choice between your emotional attachment to your pet or your ability to pay.

How much does pet insurance cost?
Once you start comparing policies you will discover they are a lot like human medical insurance. Plan prices vary by the age and health of your pet, as well as, the deductible and amount of coinsurance you are willing to pay.
