Pet owners have one thing in common. They love and care for their animals like they’re their own children.
Dogs and cats, in particular, are popular in American households.
The American Pet Products Association 2011-2012 national pet owners survey found that there are approximately 78.2 million owned dogs and approximately 86.4 million owned cats in the United States.
Dogs and cats require full-time care. They must be fed, and dogs must be bathed and taken for walks.
In return, they give us unconditional love and loyalty.
But what happens if a pet gets sick or has an accident that results in a broken bone or terminal disease?
Like humans, there is insurance for pets.
Just like us, our pets can get health coverage for a very low rate.
Numerous companies offer pet insurance to cover just about every situation for under $20 a month.
You can find coverage for everything, including accidents, routine prescriptions, emergency care, X-rays, testing for cancer,
pregnancy, hereditary conditions, and spaying or neutering.
Plans come with deductibles ranging from $100 to $1,000.
Many companies also offer various levels of coverage, from basic to the most deluxe of options, to fit your budget. And there may even be discounts for having more than one pet.
Ask your insurance agent what plan is right for you and your family’s best friend.
