And it goes without saying that you would do anything to get them better if they were injured or unwell.
We know that, as caring pet parents, you value your pets’ health and ensure they are always well looked after. Unfortunately, the fact is that no matter how well you look after them, most pets will require veterinary treatment at some stage.
Pets are naturally curious about everything around them and injuries are commonly incurred during everyday running, jumping or playing, especially in the puppy years.
Many breeds are susceptible to hereditary and congenital conditions, which increases the likelihood of illness during their lifetime.
The good news & the bad news
The good news is that nowadays the medical treatment available to pets is pretty much on a par with what people receive and the likelihood of getting your cat or dog back to full health has never been better.
The bad news is that for pets there is no Medicare and no safety net, and veterinary costs are rising.
If there is a bill, you have to foot it…all of it, which can quickly amount to thousands of dollars
Pet insurance is an easy, affordable way to cover unexpected vet bills. Not only does it make sense financially but it makes sense for your pet. There is no need for them to suffer if veterinary care is too pricey, and no difficult decisions for you to make other than getting them the best possible care.
