Your pet is often a large part of your family. You raise him/her, and your children and you become attached to the animal almost instantly. Your love for the animal makes you feel that you would do whatever you could to ensure he/she gets the best medical care. However, your wallet may not support these ideas. Purchasing pet insurance is a big financial and emotional decision that is based on what you are willing to pay to protect your pet.
Aside from forming an unbreakable bond in your family, you never know what kind of health your pet will have when it is a baby. The animal could grow up completely healthy, or grow up with health problems. Even if the pet has a healthy start, of course health problems can develop over the course of its’ lifetime.
Health problems can cause serious financial issues for owners. Medical bills are not cheap, and often run around thousands, depending on what services your dog or cat needs.
Once first adopting your dog or cat, this is the perfect time to consider insurance. The policy will be cheaper when the animal is young, and it will cover you in case of any emergency that you are unable to pay for.
Many pet owners don’t save money “just in case” their dog or cat gets sick. For example, dogs eat everything! You never know if your dog will ingest something, perhaps while you are at work, or not watching him for a minute, that will cost you thousands. Some people on the flip side of the coin argue that a perfectly healthy dog doesn’t need insurance. Even though this MIGHT be true, you never know what circumstances you will encounter with your pet, so it is best to protect them in case. Don’t wait until you are in the lobby of the veterinarian’s practice, with a sick puppy, feeling anxious and trying to figure out how to pay a bill.
If you are financially able, pet insurance is the best decision to provide your animals with a long and healthy life.
