Pet Insurance in Minnesota
You can’t predict what will happen to your pet but you can be prepared. In the event of an illness or accident, pet insurance allows you to focus on what is important—caring for your sick or injured pet rather than having to deal with the financial burden that often comes with health care. Understanding the unique risks that your dog or cat is exposed to can help you select the right insurance plan for you and your pet. Some area specific risks which can be covered with pet insurance include:
◦ Extreme weather (very cold winters and hot summers can lead to snow/ice related injuries, heat exhaustion, etc.)
◦ Lyme disease caused by ticks
◦ Tornadoes and Blizzards
◦ Harsh winters in Minnesota can allow for a more indoor and less active lifestyle, causing a high number of overweight and obese pets
Pet insurance can help protect your dog or cat from accidents and illnesses like the conditions mentioned above and provide you with the peace of mind in knowing that you are prepared to provide them with the health care they need. Minnesota pet insurance plans are flexible, designed to meet you and your pet’s individual needs and will typically cover costs associated with accidents and illnesses.
In addition to accident and illness coverage, pet owners in Minnesota may also want to consider a wellness plan. Some of the most common health conditions among dogs and cats in Minnesota, as mentioned above, are dental tartar, periodontal disease, and obesity. It is very important to be diligent with your pet’s dental care and weight because these issues can lead to much more serious and expensive health conditions like heart, liver, and kidney problems. Fortunately, dental disease and obesity may be preventable with routine dental cleanings and routine vet exams and a wellness insurance plan can cover these costs. Wellness plans (also known as routine care plans) will cover costs associated with preventative or routine care, such as:
◦ Flea, tick and heartworm control
◦ Heartworm test
◦ Dental cleanings
◦ Routine bloodwork
◦ Routine urine and fecal tests
◦ Wellness exams and more
Wellness plans not only help you save money on routine care, it can also help you stay on top of your pets wellness care to prevent some serious health conditions down the road.
