In addition to my four girls I also have two fur children. Both were rescued and hold a very special place in my heart. We welcomed Kitty Nova into our home in August of 2015 and T-Rex joined us in January of 2016. Just like my children have annual well doctor exams and visits when an emergency occurs I treat my animals with the exact same love and care. The only difference is the humans in my house have health insurance which covers a great deal of our out of pocket expenses while I find myself footing some pretty hefty vet bills when it comes to Nova & T-Rex. Did you even know that pet insurance exists? I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t considering that only 1% of pet parents have pet insurance for their fur children. Until now I didn’t even know that it existed, but I have found myself in quite a few situations where I wished we had it.
For example a few weeks ago while taking T-Rex to the bathroom in our front yard on his leash our neighbor’s larger dog ran into our yard and attacked him. He ended up with a gash and puncture near his tail that was bleeding pretty badly. I knew he needed immediate medical attention and I hated that one of the first things that popped into my mind was how much it was going to cost. Especially since this was on a Sunday and I knew it was going to be considered an emergency visit. Thankfully my neighbor’s admitted that they were at fault for their dog getting loose and injuring T-Rex so they agreed to pay for his medical bills up front. However, his injuries could have been so much worse and I could have been dealing with someone who refused to pay for those bills. In that moment I would have been much more at ease knowing I had pet insurance to protect my pup.
There are so many other instances where pet insurance would be invaluable which is why I want to share the #1 customer rated pet insurance – Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. While pet insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions or wellness care, such as regular vaccines, check-ups, flea and tick or heart worm preventative if your dog or puppy needs treatment for any accident or illness, you’re covered. One plan. Four paws. All covered.
Since pet insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions it is super important to get your pup or kitty signed up early. This not only helps care for your pet with future illnesses and accidents, but lowers the cost for you as well.
