Health insurance isn’t just for humans anymore. If you have found yourself spending bookoo bucks on your buddies, it may be time to consider insurance for your pet.
Pet owners in the Unites States spent $16 billion on their pets’ health expenses last year. Many pet owners are leaning towards the insurance route to help take some of the sting out of unwanted and unplanned vet bills. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re in the market for pet insurance!
1. Check the limits: Some plans, like health insurance, have annual or even lifetime limits on spending or even limits on certain procedures or meds.
2. Breed matters: Certain breeds are prone to certain health issues. For example, one of the more popular dogs, the French bulldog, is prone to breathing issues. That means some breeds will be more expensive to insure than others. Even things like age play into the price of insurance your pooch.
3. Know what’s all included: Pet insurance is a lot like human insurance in that there are tiers of plans which include different levels of coverage. Deductibles, accident coverage, illness coverage, etc. are all things to be aware of when looking for the perfect plan.
