WHY SHOULD I INSURE MY PET?

Because their health and happiness is worth it

YOUR PET IS FAMILY


The bond between pet owners and their pets is stronger than ever. Many pet owners consider their pet part of the family, and many would do anything to give their pet a long, happy, healthy life.

YOU WANT THE BEST CARE FOR YOUR PET

And now many pet owners can. Advances in veterinary medicine over the past decade give pet owners access to cutting-edge therapies and treatments available in human medicine. Veterinary medicine today allows us to give our pets the best care—but these advanced treatments and therapies also come with a cost.

YOU WANT TO PROTECT YOUR PET AND YOUR FINANCES

While veterinary medicine is far less expensive than human medicine, the costs can still put a strain on any pet owner hoping to pay out of pocket. Some of the most common injuries and illnesses, like a knee ligament rupture, can cost almost $3,000 to repair.

Because pet care costs are rising

As advanced veterinary care becomes more available and costs increase, medical insurance for pets is rising in popularity and becoming an essential part of responsible pet ownership.

Just like with health insurance for other members of the family, medical insurance for a pet helps owners give their pet the best care, without worrying about the cost.
