Pet insurance in Alabama provides affordable and flexible plans to fit your pet’s needs and your budget. Our goal is to provide you with the area-specific health risks and concerns to dogs and cats in Alabama. Understanding these health risks can help you make an informed decision about the right pet insurance plan for you and your pet.
The moist and warm climate of Alabama can affect your pet’s health. For an example, Alabama’s humidity causes a high number of mosquitoes which transmit many different types of infectious diseases like heartworm. Dogs in Alabama are at a higher risk of contracting heartworm (a life-threatening, yet preventable infection) compared to the national average. Cats living in Alabama are at a higher risk of contracting Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV, very similar to HIV for humans); these are spread through the close contact of an infected cat and can be very serious (especially among kittens) but they are treatable if caught early and may be preventable through vaccinations. Most of these illnesses are preventable and/or treatable through routine heath care.
Pet insurance in Alabama can help protect your dog or cat from the health conditions mentioned above by alleviating the rising cost of veterinary care. Alabama pet insurance plans are typically flexible, designed to meet you and your pet’s individual needs and cover accidents and illnesses. In addition to accident and illness coverage, Alabamians may also want to consider a wellness plan. As noted above, pets in Alabama are most commonly diagnosed with dental tartar and being overweight. Fortunately, wellness plans (also known as routine care plans) will cover costs associated with preventative care to avoid those common health condition, such as:
◦ Routine lab tests
◦ Flea, tick and heartworm control
◦ Dental cleanings
◦ Wellness exams and more
