Does your Pet have pet Insurance?

Does your Pet have pet Insurance?

If not, it might be something to consider? You really can’t explain risk to your dog or cat and things can happen, having insurance for your pet is similar to having health insurance for yourself, it certainly can make a difference when something comes up. Some insurance companies offer plans that just work for emergencies, illness, and disease, and others offer plans that include preventative care such as exams, vaccines, spays, neuters and dentals.  Start by deciding what works best for you and your pet. It’s important to know that there are multiple companies to choose from. Our top two client recommednations for insurance are VPI Pet Insurance and Trupanion, both are very different but we have several clients on each provider and the clients are really very happy with the insurance provided by both. Do your research and pick the provider that’s right for you.

Things to research and think about when looking into pet insurance companies:

  • Review plan options
  • Review deductible options, choose the one that is right for you
  • Look into payback percentages
  • Research rates, and choose the options that work for you pet and your pocketbook
  • Some have payback limits, some do not
  • Some pay a flat percentage rate paid back on services provided some have different percentages for different services.
  • before deciding which one is right for you and your furry family members
  • See if they have a Facebook page and review what their policy holders are saying and posting
  • Find out how long they have been in business and decide if that is important to you or not
  • Decide to get insurance while your pet is healthy, insurance companies do not cover preexisting conditions, so if you have a puppy or kitten insure him or her now so everything in the future is covered.

Pet insurance company contact information is listed below for your reference: (please visit both of their websites before making your decision)
