5 Good Reasons You Should Insure Your New Pet

Insure Your New Pet: What Are the Advantages?Investing in a pet is a big decision and one that shouldn't be taken lightly. After all, cats and dogs live for twelve to eighteen years on average and birds can live several decades. Any creature brought into your home becomes part of your family and you want to treat them as such.

But what does litter box training or playing fetch have to do with pet insurance? Is insurance on our pets really necessary?

1. Peace of Mind

Insure Your New Pet: What Are the Advantages?Let's face it, many of us purchase a pet or take one in without being fully prepared for the emotional journey our new furry or feathered friend will inflict upon our hearts. They quickly become a member of the family, leaving you to worry about their health and well-being as if Fido were a one of the children. In fact, pets begin very quickly to understand the family language as it pertains to their care. They know when you're about to give them a bath, they start hovering around looking at the clock when it's time for a feed and make sure they give plenty of gentle reminders so you don't forget to feed them! They can sense your moods and react accordingly. Having insurance for your pet eases your mind and allows you to be a more relaxed caretaker to your furry or feathered friend.

2. Affordable Vet Bills

New pets, like children, can be very accident prone. Due to said accidents, attacks by other animals or in the event they are able to get loose and end up on the road possibly being hit or run over, pets sometimes need expensive surgical procedures and long term follow-up care. When Fido swallows the nail clippers or Tweety breaks a wing, not only will it often occur after hours, it's also going to carry a cost (sometimes into the thousands of dollars). Having pet insurance for such things allows you to take care of the situation how you want to, without hesitation or draining your wallet.

3. Decreases Early Euthanasia

Insure Your New Pet: What Are the Advantages?Besides the possibility of accidents, there is also the chance your pet will become sick. Cancer and other various medical disorders are not unknown among pets. Long term treatment or daily medication may be required for a healthy lifespan. Nothing is more heartbreaking than having to choose euthanasia rather than giving your little pet, a.k.a. family member, a fighting chance for a full recovery. But euthanasia is often the case when finances simply don't allow for the pricey surgery and the follow-up care required.

4. Tailored Plans Available

Depending on your specific requirements and budget, insurance plans are more than affordable. If you do your research and shop around, it should be possible to find a plan to accommodate both your needs and your budget. Generally you have the choice of a comprehensive plan covering regular care or choose cover for emergency procedures only. A small monthly premium is usually pretty manageable and is actually a lot easier than trying to come up with a hefty sum for a vet bill when its needed.

5. Shows Responsibility

Finally, purchasing pet health insurance for your pets is simply the responsible thing to do. After all you never know what is just around the corner. Let's be honest here when it comes to health you're covered, your children are covered, so why not Fido and Tweety? What about your pets, are they covered? We'd love to hear your reasons both for and against covering your pets. Insure Your New Pet and and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.

Got these much faster than other products I have ordered online. The fit is wonderful, even in my little Corolla, and the installation was really easy. Hair does NOT stick to these covers.I love them!


Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
