Do Pets Need Insurance Part 4?

Clients often ask if pet insurance is necessary, whether or not these products are worth the expense.  Let’s continue to look at how pet insurance works, and explain how it can benefit your pet.

Watson was bored of his E. Collar!
Once pet parents have decided to insure their pets, they next question they tend to ask is when they should buy it.  Simply put, the sooner the better.  Like other health insurance products, pet insurance becomes more expensive as our pets increase in age.  While older pets are still insurable, younger pets without pre-existing conditions will always cost less to insure.  Bear in mind that curious youngsters are often more accident prone.  

Last year, Zohan’s best buddy, Watson, was signed up for a free 30-dayTrupanion trial during a routine wellness visit. Within two hours, Watson took a flying leap from the back deck and fractured one of his front legs.  The repair required a surgical fix from an orthopedic surgeon and cost over $2400. Trupanion reimbursed Watson’s family for 90% of the bill!
