Furry family members are important members of the family too — and their medical care can become extremely expensive.
This is especially true now that advances in veterinary medicine mean pets can get heart surgery, chemotherapy, hip replacements, and many of the advanced life-improving and life-extending procedures humans undergo.
You don’t want to be forced to go into debt or put your pet down because you can’t afford care. Buying pet insurance could help you to do the very best for your animal companions.
Just be aware that pet insurance policies do not cover pre-existing conditions, so try to get covered when your pet is young and healthy. And research policies carefully because some pet insurance coverage is much better than others.
