We understand that your dog has become a part of the family. We also know that you can’t predict when they will become sick or injured but there is a way to be prepared. The good news is that veterinary care is improving by the day through new veterinary science like MRIs and chemotherapy, allowing pets to live happier and healthier lives. This does, however, make veterinary care very expensive. Pet insurance can alleviate the increasing costs of veterinary bills so that you can focus on caring for your sick pup rather than your wallet.
What does dog insurance cover?
Pet insurance varies by company and by policy. Typically your dog’s age, breed, and location will determine the policy that’s best for you. Policies typically cover accidents and illnesses and most will allow you to customize your own policy so that you are paying for the coverage you want. General plans will often cover:
◦ Exam Fees
◦ Hospitalization and Surgery
◦ Prescription Medications
◦ Genetic Conditions, such as Hip Dysplasia
◦ Chronic Conditions like asthma
◦ Cancer Treatment
◦ Dental Trauma
◦ Blood Tests
◦ Emergency Care
What about wellness care?
Routine wellness care is not covered by most insurance policies but can sometimes be added on depending on the insurance provider. Our Wellness Plan information page can give you additional details.
How Much Will the Plan Cost?
Pet insurance prices vary with each provider and are typically based upon your dog’s breed, age, and location. Most providers will also allow you to customize the parts of the plan that affect your monthly payment, such as the annual deductible. This way, you can make the plan fit your budget and lifestyle. Insurance companies will often offer discounts if you are insuring more than one pet, paying annually rather than monthly and if your pet is spayed or neutered.
