Why is it so important?
The joy of owning a pet can be easily overshadowed when your pet gets sick or injured. And when this happens, hard financial decisions need to be made that can be distressing.
An uninsured pet impacts everyone involved when it comes to treating them. Pet insurance is just like health insurance and can help you be prepared for situations where your pet needs emergency treatment. The reality is, treating and caring for a pet is just as expensive as a person getting treated in a hospital. The last thing you want to be dealing with if your pet gets sick or injured is an expensive treatment plan.
Just like health insurance, you need to make sure that your policy is right for your circumstances as all policies differ. But by having a pet insurance policy that suits you, you’re making sure your furry friend can get the treatment they deserve.
