Let’s face it, we embrace dogs, cats, and other companion animals as family members. We spend hours researching the ideal food, treats, and toys. We allow them to sleep in our beds. We plan vacations and weekend trips so they can be included in the fun. Yet, many pet parents do not have pet insurance to help protect their furry family member.
At Westfield Veterinary Group, we believe pet insurance is a wonderful option for most cat and dog owners. When a pet emergency occurs, we want our clients to be financially prepared and ready to address the illness or injury.
Here are just a few benefits of pet insurance:
- Delivers peace of mind. Having a pet health insurance plan in place allows you to choose treatment options for your sick or injured pet based on their veterinary needs and not on financial restraints. Pet health insurance reimburses a large percentage of veterinary bills after any emergency room visit, surgical procedure, or specialist visit.
- Provides an easy way to budget veterinary costs. Pet insurance typically ranges from $40-60 per month and can be paid monthly, quarterly, or yearly. With an insurance policy, there are limited surprise costs, even in emergency situations.
- Allows a plan tailored for you and your pet’s needs. Many popular insurance plans allow coverage for advanced specialist care, illness care, and injury care. You are able to select the coverage and deductible you are most comfortable with that meets your needs.
- Most importantly, pet insurance can extend, and even save, your fur baby’s life. Insurance allows your pet to receive medical treatments necessary for chronic illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, injuries that require surgery, and issues that require hospitalization.
