Pet Health Insurance

Another option to consider is the purchase of pet health insurance. Pet policies come with a variety of deductibles, co-payments, and premiums. The cost of coverage can vary depending on your pet’s breed, age, veterinary care costs, and the coverage options you choose, such as your deductible amount. Many can be customized to cover accidents, wellness, alternative therapies, dental, and more. Insurance can make it possible to afford state-of-the-art care for serious conditions such as cancer, diabetes, or severe trauma that might not otherwise be financially possible.

We encourage you to explore your options before you purchase pet insurance for your pet. Choosing a policy early in your pet’s life is best while they are healthy. A list of companies, features, and pricing can be found by visiting the following links below:
