The Benefits of Pet Insurance

September 1 2018

Did you know that September is Pet Insurance Month? It’s also National Italian Cheese Month, and International Square Dancing Month, but we’ll stick with what we know best: insurance. More and more people are choosing to insure their pets. There are actually some very good reasons to look into getting insurance for your furry pal. A Crown Point, IN vet lists some key benefits of pet insurance in this article.

Great Coverage

You may be surprised at how many things pet insurance may cover. The list includes accidents; injuries; common, chronic, and severe health problems; and genetic issues. Insurance can also cover wellness care, testing and diagnostics, and certain procedures. Some policies cover holistic and alternative treatments. You can even find policies that cover rewards for lost pets, or allow for additional procedures, such as chemotherapy, for pets that are ill. Others may provide legal or financial help if your pet should ever bite or injure a person or animal.

Member Perks

Some policies offer great perks. For instance, you may get discounts on certain toys, magazines, or other products and services. These savings and discounts can really add up!

Financial Planning

Insurance can help you spread out the cost of your pet’s care into monthly or yearly installments. This will help keep you on track with your budget. It can also just make things easier, as you won’t have to pay the entire bill out of pocket when you bring your little (or not so little) buddy to the vet.

Emergency Coverage

Did you know that as many as a third of our animal friends require emergency veterinary care each year? No one wants to think of their furry companions getting sick or injured, but unfortunately it does happen. Having insurance can make a huge difference in emergency situations. It’s also great to have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have a safety net in case something does happen. Plus, you won’t have to worry about ever being in the heartbreaking position of having to delay emergency care due to lack of funds.


Pet insurance policies vary from provider to provider. Consult a professional agent to get specific plan details and options. It never hurts to learn more!
