Pet Insurance in the News

In our most recent newsletter, we had a long article about pet insurance. In that article, we laid out the benefits of having pet insurance and what to consider when buying a plan.

This week, the East Valley Tribune has a couple of articles on the same subject.

In the first, "What's a pet worth?", writer Mandy Zajac discusses the cost of treating her golden retriever at a cardiologist and an internist. The costs can quickly add up for diagnosis and treatment.

In the second, "Is pet insurance a good thing?", Zajac lays out a lot of the same issues we discussed in our newsletter. She even talks to a representative from Embrace Pet Insurance, one of the companies we recommend.

The upshot of both articles is that medical care for your pet can be costly. Pet insurance may not be for everyone, but it does eliminate the awful moment of deciding that necessary medical care cost more than you can afford. With pet insurance, that decision goes away, and you know that your cat is getting the best care possible.

If you have any questions about pet insurance, read the article in our newsletter and follow the helpful links to some companies we recommend. Also feel free to call our clinic, and we can point you to some resources as well. We can't make financial decisions for you, unfortunately, but we can help you understand how pet insurance works.

So many people overlook their pet insurance. I certainly did a few years ago and when one of my cats needed some extensive dental treatment the vet bill was extremely large indeed. I would definitely recommend pet insurance but read up on it first and search around the net for the best deals.
