On our previous post, we shared the importance of going to the vet for a yearly check-up. Good to know that many of you find the significance of a pet’s yearly check-up.
As prices for veterinary services continues to increase, there has been a decline of vet visits. Many pet owners have limited funds and/or don’t have pet insurance. Thus, pet parents are struggling to pay for pet care.
From the Associated Press survey, 41% percent of pet owners are extremely worried that if their pets get sick they could not afford paying for the medical bills.
Health insurance for pets is growing in popularity. Is it worth it?
Pet insurance is something I thought of getting for Sugar. Golden Retriever is a breed prone to many illnesses and diseases. As a pet parent, I looked at different options and chose to “self-insure” Sugar by saving money into a pet emergency fund.
According to the American Pet Products Association, pet owners are expected to spend $15.25 billion on veterinary care this year and another $14.37 billion on over-the-counter medicines and other supplies.
Pet Insurance: A Choice and Peace of Mind
Purchasing pet insurance is not for everyone, it’s a personal choice. Major pet illnesses do occur and its unavoidable. Many pet parents make an emotional choice to pay for pet insurance.
I wish I would have been smarter in my decision and chose an insurance for Sugar. For the past 12 years, Sugar has been to the vet many times (besides her annual check-up). The biggest expenses were mostly spent on her allergies/ear infections visits and recent tongue surgeries.
You never know when you will have to take your dog to the vet. Having pet health insurance means peace of mind and never having to ask yourself “can I afford this vet bill?”
Do you have insurance for your pet?
