In the News: Pet Insurance One Way to Protect Against High Vet Bills

Active DogRecently WKRN-TV in Nashville aired a story about how pet insurance can help pet owners guard themselves against high cost of veterinary care. The story quoted the American Pet Products Association, which found dog owners spend, on average, $655 on routine doctor and surgical visits.

The story concluded that more and more people are treating their pets as they would a valued member of the family – paying whatever means necessary to keep their pets healthy for as long as possible.

To help combat these veterinary costs, it was suggested that pet owners look into pet insurance. Pet insurance can make it easier on pet owners by alleviating the expense of veterinary bills so when pet owners agree to advanced procedures, it doesn’t land them in debt.

Other suggestions to help lessen the cost of veterinary care were to have pets checked regularly at the veterinarian to make sure any illnesses are caught and treated early, and keep pets on a high-quality healthy diet.
