How To Choose Pet Insurance
Pet insurance is an important cost to consider for the safety of your pets and your wallet. Luckily, my cats have been low maintenance over the years and only really required the basic yearly visit. However, anyone with pets knows even the healthiest critter can get themselves in trouble with their own shenanigans. Unfortunately for us, on top of all that worry, the vet bill can end up costing thousands.
For example, years ago my parents had a new bulldog puppy who managed to eat the popsicle and stick in one gulp. A few thousand dollars later for emergency surgery she was fine. However, most of us don’t have extra money set aside for catastrophes. This is where pet insurance may be the best choice.
Cat owners may scoff at the idea of pet insurance, as surely everyone knows dogs cause more trouble. However, cats actually make up approximately 20% of animals covered by pet insurance. Policies can start at $15 a month, which can pay for itself if an emergency arises.
After doing some research, I actually found that pet insurance is pretty simple and straightforward. Which is great news, since no one needs more complicated policies with health, homeowners or auto insurance already on everyones’ radar.
