There are a lot of things you can prepare for, budget-wise, when adopting a pet. Food, a litter box, trips to the groomer. But swallowing a sock and needing emergency surgery? Boo, hiss. Do you have a plan?
Pet insurance is a healthcare plan that covers unexpected accidents, injuries, and illnesses. It’s here so you never have to choose between your pet’s health and other financial priorities.
Shelters and rescues simply can’t know everything that’s happened to your new buddy in their past life. Unforeseen or untreated health issues are always possible, and proper coverage is critical.
The cost of treating unforeseen medical issues is a primary reason why adopters relinquish pets to a shelter.
Owning a pet isn’t cheap. Worth it…but not cheap. And with the average vet bill costing $1,500, it’s common for pet owners to find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place.
