If you love your pet but have other financial obligations, you should think about getting pet insurance.
You love your pet. After a certain amount of time, your pet becomes a part of the family. Even though he or she isn’t human, your human heart falls in love and you get attached. And because your pet is a meaningful part of your life, you want to protect him or her. Pet insurance can help you do exactly that.
Did you know that in 2014, pet owners spent about $15 billion at the vet? That’s a lot of money – and a lot of it was unnecessarily spent. If you have a policy for your pet, you can avoid those huge pet bills that become a financial burden to all too many families.
Say your dog swallows something he shouldn’t. Expect to cough up over a grand at the vet. Or suppose your cat comes down with pneumonia. Again, you need to be ready to shell out nearly a thousand. That is, unless you have pet insurance in place.
Why is pet coverage important? Of course, it’s nice to be sheltered from those hefty expenses, but a pet policy gets its true value from the emotional protection it offers. Say you needed that thousand dollars for a planned family vacation or even your mortgage. Without pet insurance, you’ll have to make a very difficult decision about how to delegate those dollars. With it, you can continue to keep up with your other financial obligations and protect the health of your pet. If you don’t want to find yourself between a rock and hard place, affordable pet insurance (you can usually get a policy for about $25 a month) is a great solution.
