Why get cat insurance?
When your furry friend becomes sick or hurt, the dollar amount shouldn't be a barrier from getting the best veterinary care. Cats are susceptible to chronic health conditions like hyperthyroidism and kidney disease, and these chronic conditions often come with a lifetime of treatment, such as lifelong medication or monthly check-ups with a veterinarian. But the good news is that all of these conditions are more easily treated than ever, thanks to recent advances in veterinary care.
But even with these new veterinary options available, the cost that comes with this advanced level of care is high and many times not within a family’s budget. That is why medical insurance for your cat makes so much sense. Insurance can help lessen the financial strain so pet owners can make decisions based primarily on what is the best option for their cat, not which option is within their budgetary constraints.
If you've just begun to look into cat insurance, all of the information may feel a little overwhelming. We've simplified it by breaking down the information into smaller, easy-to-read sections so you can be sure that you're getting the best coverage for your cat.
