The veterinarians at Baring Boulevard Veterinary Hospital recommend that all pets be covered by pet health insurance. This service is now offered by many companies, including our suggested coverage provider, Trupanion Veterinary Insurance.
Pet health insurance plans function in the same manner as human health insurance policies. The policy holder pays a small amount of money monthly for coverage, and the agency provides reimbursement for claims filed. This eliminates the need for placing veterinary bills on credit cards or worrying about having large amounts set aside in savings. Surgeries and treatments for chronic conditions in cases can cost upwards of a thousand dollars. Plans also do not cover pre-existing conditions so choosing a policy early in your pet's life is beneficial
We encourage you to explore your options and decide if pet insurance is right for you and your companion.
