About 1 in 3 cats and dogs will need medical care, other than regular vaccinations, in any given year. So – unfortunately - unexpected veterinary bills can occur at any time.
Advances in veterinary medicine make diagnostics and treatments possible that were unthinkable only a few years ago: chemo therapy, hip replacements, cataract surgeries – just to name a few. There are also a number of medical conditions like arthritis, kidney disease or skin conditions that require financial commitment over time.
We regularly see the heart wrenching decisions our clients have to make regarding the treatment of their pet. With pet insurance in place these decisions can hopefully be made on the basis of your pet's needs rather than based on cost.
Don’t take any chances – get your pets insured today.
