If you know me on a personal level then you’ll know that I love to research products, services, including something like Pet Insurance before purchasing. Most people would not even consider not having health insurance for themselves or their family. My mother being one of those people has instilled in me the importance of health insurance and how you can never be over prepared for your next accident. Health insurance is very important for me because I love to play sports like hockey, tennis, golf and love the active lifestyle. This is very healthy as far as being well conditioned, but it also wears on your joints and there’s always a possibility of injury even more so as you get older.
Why Pet Insurance?
Now that I’ve discussed health insurance for people why not Pet Insurance for your dog, cat, or other favorite pet. Many pets are just as active and susceptible to injuries as humans. Pets will also succumb to certain health issues as they become older. And if any of you have visited the veterinarian recently you’ll know that vet bills are almost if not just as expensive as your regular doctor.
I guess your probably wondering why are we talking about Pet Insurance today. Well, Stetson has had a skin irritation for a while now. He’s been treated three times over the past year and his rash/skin allergy comes and goes. We decided to visit a different vet to see if we could nip this little allergy in the bud. While we received good news, medication and information on how to control Stetson’s allergy our 30 minute visit to the vet cost us nearly $200…and that was for something I’d consider very minor. Just think if we had a major incident…surgery for elbow or hip dysplasia, broken bones, torn ligaments…the list can go on and on.
So now we’re researching Pet Insurance. And what better place to start then a post to the blog. We’d like to hear what you think about pet insurance. Do you have Pet Insurance? Who’s your provider? Why did you choose them? Let us know in the comments section below.
