Pet Insurance in New Mexico

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 good health care. Every area poses specific risks to pets and understanding these unique risks can help you decide which plan is best for you and your pet. Some area specific health risks in New Mexico, which can be covered with pet insurance, include:

◦   Infectious diseases like Kennel Cough and Canine Parvovirus are prevalent in New Mexico
◦   High temperatures can cause heat related problems like heat exhaustion and dehydration

New Mexico 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 New Mexico may also want to consider a wellness plan. Some of the most common health conditions among dogs and cats in New Mexico, as mentioned above, are periodontal disease, dental tartar and being overweight. It is very important to be diligent with your pet’s weight and dental care because these issues can lead to much more serious and expensive health conditions like kidney, liver, and heart problems.
