Which Pet Insurance Company Best Meets Your Needs

Jan 14, 2008
As veterinary treatment becomes increasingly expensive, pet owners are finally coming around to the idea of acquiring pet insurance for their animals. Regularly in the not too distant past, owners were often finding themselves in heartbreaking situations where their beloved pet needed life saving treatment or surgery but the funds needed for these were just not available. More often than not, economic euthanasia was the only option distraught pet owners could take. But the widespread and easily accessed availability of pet insurance today is happily leading to a decline to such horrible situations.

Although pet health insurance has been around for a number of years, it still surprises quite a few people that such a type of insurance policy cover for animals existed. But in today's environment of escalating costs in both care and treatment for our furry friends, it makes perfect economic sense to avail of pet insurance cover.

Just as we would look around for the best type of insurance for ourselves and our family's, the same course of action should be taken when searching for different types of pet insurance cover that are available for your pet. A comparison of the different types of cover and premiums insurance companies offer is vitally important and enables you to obtain the best possible cover you are comfortable with, at a premium that suits your individual budgetary needs.

The ideal way of making comparisons between the various insurance companies that are out there today, would be to go on-line. All insurance companies have websites and most offer the capability of acquiring quotes on-line. This procedure of acquiring on-line quotes also gives you, the customer, the ability to input various criteria into their system to see which results best meets your needs, both cover-wise and financially. There are even some independent websites on-line that enable you to compare different insurance company's cover plans and quotes simply by listing results in an easy to read table- enabling you to make a comparison of the many different cover plans available, on one site.

There is a huge array of cover and options available for pet owners to choose from. Premier cover, for example, while obviously being the most expensive, offers the best coverage. Preventative treatments, wellness and veterinary care for illness and emergency are all normally covered in a premium policy, as well as long term treatment for ongoing illnesses or conditions of disease.

When performing a pet insurance comparison, some other factors you may want to consider are: does the plan cover kennel or cattery fees, would you have to use a specific veterinarian, will the policy cover pet travelling (moving home, holiday's, etc), would it cover boarding fees were you yourself to become ill and not be able to take care of your pet? These are just a few of the options you could and should consider before purchasing pet insurance cover.

When deciding which cover is best for your needs, a few options are available that could help you reduce the cost of the premiums on your policy. Choosing a higher deductible is one method of doing this, or you could choose a policy that offers a co-payment option. Certain companies may also offer discounts for quarterly or annually paid premiums as opposed to monthly payment instalments. As most pet insurance companies offer a variety of plans, ultimately you should be able to find the coverage that best suits you and your pets needs and still manage to stay within the constraints of your budget.
