3 Benefits of Pet Insurance

By RachelSheppard. | Holidays Dog Info

Chances are, many people welcomed a new pet into their home for the holiday season, which is wonderful!

3 Benefits of Pet InsuranceBringing a new pet into your home is an exciting time. There are tons of things you have to do. First, you need to purchase pet beds, food, toys, and perhaps a few extra items. Then, you need to start socializing your pet and getting them used to your routine. Before you know it, the new year has started, and kids are back to school, and you are back to your busy schedule. Although 2016 is bound to speed by like all the other years, it is important to start the new year off correctly by signing up your pet for pet insurance. Even if your pet has been with you for a while, there is no better time than the present to get your pet insured. When I was working at the veterinary hospital, a lot of people said that they heard that pet insurance was a scam. For a handful of reasons, pet insurance in it's early years received a bad wrap. I think partly because pet insurance is structured so differently from our own insurance, and partly because it was a new concept and there were some issues with previous policies. However, pet insurance has evolvedand I think it could be a very valuable tool for most pet parents.

Here are Some of the Benefits of Pet Insurance:

1) Financial Security:

I don't know about you, but I always set a few financial goals at the beginning of the new year. The new year is simply a great time to try and establish new financial habits. 3 Benefits of Pet InsuranceHow does pet insurance fit into this plan and goal? Well, like many other forms of insurance, pet insurance proves beneficial when you need it. For example, one and a half years ago Rooney slipped a disc in his back during a time when my husband and I had no additional room in our budget. Of course, Rooney's injury occurred at 5:30 pm on a Friday meaning only emergency veterinarians were still open. Thankfully, Rooney would fully recover from his injury in 3 weeks without needing surgery. However, his overnight stay at the emergency hospital and the subsequent follow-up visits cost us approximately $1500. Thanks to our pet insurance, we later received checks covering 90% of the cost after our deductible and exam fees. Ultimately, we received about 75% of the total cost back.

2) Alternative Treatments:

If you select an insurance that covers a wide array of treatments, if and when the time comes to try something new for your pet's health, your answer can be yes with no hesitation. I had a patient who suddenly began showing signs of a brain tumor. Her pet parent had taken the time to sign her up for pet insurance when she was 9 years old. Because he had taken the time to prepare, he was able to take her up to the UC Davis Veterinary Hospital to receive radiation treatments for her tumor. The patient fully recovered and showed no further symptoms within a few months. Additionally, 90% of all costs were covered.

3) Customizable Plans & Options:

Pet instance has evolved significantly in the last 15 years. As a result, pet parents now have access to a variety of plans and options. Not to mention customization. For example, when we had our financial circumstances change, I lowered the monthly payment for Rooney's insurance, and I have the ability to make adjustments again if I need to. So what is stopping you from getting pet insurance for your pet? Dog Training and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Split rear seat cover (no hammock) and Split cargo liner

I just purchased these items to use in an Infiniti QX30. The small cargo liner fits well with lots to tuck underneath - so good coverage if I need to drape it over the bumper for loading camping gear, etc. The regular split seat cover is just a tidge big, but with some tucking here and there it covers the seat well. Good quality and prompt service. I recommend this product.

This product is amazing and so is the company. I was concerned it wouldn't fit my F350 Super Duty crew cab. I emailed them to ask and they responded really quick. I got the cover and it is everything they show it is & more. It fits perfect. I also bought the side covers for the doors in the back.
