Why Buy Pet Insurance, Why It Is A Good Idea

Aug 17, 2007
If you own pets, then you know that animals are just like humans. All of us need medical attention from time to time. Just as you carry insurance on the other members of your household, you need to invest in insurance for your pet. Here are several reasons why you should buy pet insurance.

When we think of insurance for ourselves, we think of making sure we have coverage in the event that a health issue requires extended attention and care. Pet insurance provides the same level of security when it comes to our pets. Many pet owners care deeply for their animals, and have no desire to see them suffer. Insurance for your pet is one way you can make sure that even if your animal has a major medical emergency, you will be able to make sure your pet has the best of care.

Along with alleviating the concern of what you would do if your pet surgery or long term care, there is also the matter of preventive maintenance. A number of plans these days now allow for a certain number of office visits and provide full coverage for a few annual procedures for your pet. As an example, you may find that a good policy will include one teeth cleaning session per year for your dog. This may not seem like a lot, until you consider that before a dog's teeth may be cleaned, the veterinarian must test for liver problems, which means your pet will have to go under anesthesia. In short, a teeth-cleaning session can cost a few hundred dollars. This alone can make the cost when you buy pet insurance on an annual basis begin to look very reasonable.

Medications are another potential expense that you may face someday with your pet. By having a good insurance policy, you will have access to a deductible that will help greatly with any ongoing medication your pet has to take. In some cases, there may not be a deductible to meet at all, but instead a co-payment of a few dollars on each prescription. Either way, you will immediately save a lot of money on medications, should your animal require them for an extended period of time.

Our pets are often the source of a lot of good things in our lives. They keep us from feeling lonely and often are able to cheer us up after a hard day. Insurance is one way we can show how much we love out animals, and ensure they live long and healthy lives. If you have not considered if you need to buy pet insurance before now, speak with your vet about coverage that is currently accepted through his or her office, and compare a couple of plans. You will be glad you did.
