Why do I need Pet Insurance?
Peace of Mind
Advances in the field of animal medicine have been exponential in past decades
allowing veterinarians to successfully treat conditions that were previously considered
untreatable. However with these advances comes an escalating cost of veterinary care.
It is estimated that North American pet guardians now spend over $10 billion a year on
healthcare for their pets.
No one plans on their pet getting sick or being in an accident. Statistics show that one
in three pets will need emergency veterinary treatment every year. Two out of every
three pets experience a significant health problem during their lifetime. Your pet is a
part of your family, prepare for the unexpected.
Pet Insurance is very similar to human health insurance which offers a range of
programs tailored to suit the needs of domestic pets. While pet insurance remains a
relatively underdeveloped product in North America, with less than 1% of all pets being
insured, European levels of insured pets range from 12% to 50%. In many European
countries - like the UK and Sweden - insuring your pet is just as common as insuring
your home or car. It's second nature.
Today, responsible pet ownership is about more than loving them - it means being able
to provide the right environment, stimulation, lifestyle, exercise and activity levels,
nutrition and health care for your pet.
Financing Your Pet's Health
We all have the best intentions when it comes to saving money for emergencies,
however it seems like something else always comes up. Pet insurance is a way to
budget and control the cost of keeping your pet healthy. You'll always know your
monthly costs so you won't be caught unprepared in the case of an emergency. You'll
be free to provide your pet with your love and attention in times of need.
