You have likely heard your veterinarian talk to you about pet health insurance before. Unfortunately, in many cases pet parents decide to hold-off on purchasing at that time and then don’t put another thought to it until their dog or cat is presented with a medical emergency. It is at this point that they remember the conversation and agonisingly ponder,
“Why didn’t I sign up for pet health insurance when I had the chance?”
- many parents across Canada
So what does one gain from signing up for pet health insurance?
Depending on your individual pet’s needs, rips to the veterinarian, particularly of the unexpected emergency variety, can be costly. In too many cases, owners across the country are forced to make the heart-wrenching choice between their pet’s well being and their own financial resources at the expense of their pet’s care needs.
Pet health insurance takes the stress out the equation by helping you cover your veterinary bills, often by as much as 80% of fees.
There are many different forms of health insurance coverage for your pets depending on their breed, age and other factors. In many cases dental and alternative remedies & therapies are offered as additional packages, while preventive medicine can also be included.
Peace of Mind
Knowing that your pet will get the care that they need, when they need it, is priceless. By enrolling in pet health insurance you are not only helping your loved one but also making your trips to the veterinarian much less stressful for the both of you.
