Pet Insurance in Missouri
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. Missouri 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 Missouri may also want to consider a wellness plan. Some of the most common health conditions among dogs and cats in Missouri, as mentioned above, are dental tartar and periodontal disease. It is very important to be diligent with your pet’s dental care because poor dental health can lead to much more serious and expensive health conditions like heart, liver, and kidney problems. Fortunately, dental disease may be preventable with routine dental cleanings and routine vet exams and a wellness insurance plan can cover these costs. Since dogs in Missouri are also at a much higher risk of parasites, a wellness plan can help save you money on monthly flea/tick/heartworm preventative medication. 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.
