~~Please buy pet insurance! Pets should not be without it!
Sick or injured pet care is very expensive. It is easy to have a bill from $1500 to $3500 especially if surgery is required. These expenses are never planned for and euthanizing a pet is not an option when it is a beloved member of the family. The expenses can quickly become a financial burden.
Insurance is worth it! Trupanion pet insurance pays 90% of the veterinary bill after the deductible and exam fee. Check out consumersadvocate.org.
What about exclusions? Trupanion’s only exclusions are pre-existing conditions. This means if the policy is started after a pet has ear infections, ear care will not be covered. Buying the policy for a young, healthy pet is the best value.
What about not covering breed or congenital conditions? Again, unlike other insurance companies, Trupanion does not exclude these. They pay 90% of any condition after the exam and deductible.
The rates are surprisingly reasonable and you can chose your own deductible.
COMING SOON: Trupanion Express means clients with trupanion insurance only pay us 10% of their vet bill. Trupanion pays us the balance electronically.
Again, check out consumersadvocate.org or trupanion.com for more information. If you still are unsure, please call us to discuss why ALL PETS SHOULD HAVE PET INSURANCE.
Pet insurance has been a great investment for us so far. Our cat decided to swallow a bunch of gift ribbon on Christmas as a breakfast snack, and we were also covered for my dog's surgery. Without that insurance, our bills for vet care this year would have been through the roof! And all of their routine visits to check their weight and update their vaccines are covered. If your vet offers it, take advantage of that insurance!!
