Pet Insurance

Pet insurance plans cover the costs of covered medical care, often at rates of up to 90%. Each plan is different, with some covering only emergency care, while others will also help with the costs of preventive care like wellness exams and vaccines. With so many options, it can be overwhelming trying to decide which plan is best for you and your pet. Luckily, we’re here to help!

When it comes to enrolling your pet in pet insurance, timing is everything! It’s no surprise that most pet parents opt for pet insurance within the first 6 months of adopting their puppy or kitten, while they are still healthy! We encourage you to look into pet insurance now, before pre-existing conditions arise!

Here are some things to consider when choosing a pet insurance plan:

How much you’ll be paying each month and if it fits within your budget

Your deductible and what treatments/procedures apply to help you reach that deductible
Whether you want preventive care covered in your plan or just unexpected medical care

How you’ll be reimbursed, and for how much

What conditions are covered, and if there are limitations such as pre-existing, congenital, or hereditary conditions

What the plan’s limitations are and if they have a cap on how much you can be reimbursed within a year

Purchasing pet insurance is a big decision, but it’s often an important one that can help you give the best care to your pet in the long run. The best time to enroll your pet in a plan is when they are young and healthy. You’ll often pay lower premiums on a healthy pet, and you won’t have to worry about pre-existing conditions not being covered.

However, even if your pet is a little older, pet insurance may still be one of the best decisions you can make for them. As pets age, they’re more likely to develop unexpected health conditions and if they’re enrolled in a pet insurance plan before those conditions develop, you’re more likely to be covered. Plus, emergency cases can happen at any age, and being covered for emergency care can save you thousands of dollars if an emergency does occur.
