Unfortunately, just like humans, pets can have medical problems that may yield expensive veterinary bills. Fortunately, pet insurance is available to combat those risks.
What is Pet Insurance?
Most pet owners consider their animals to be members of their family; therefore, their pet’s quality of life and health is extremely important. By purchasing pet insurance, pet owners are not burdened with veterinary bills and can focus on making sure their pets get and stay healthy.
Pet Insurance Coverage Basics
Here are the details of a typical pet insurance policy:
- Policies allow pet owner to select a coverage percentage or monthly premium that will work best for them.
- Pets must have an annual exam and owners must adhere to the recommendations of their veterinarians to remain covered.
