Do I need pet insurance?

There may have been a time not too long ago when the notion of paying for medical insurance for your pets would have evoked laughter. These days, it makes people think carefully. It has little to do with any change in attitude toward our furry friends and a lot to do with the increase in cost to keep them healthy.

Veterinarians these days are equipped with far more expensive and advanced equipment for the treatment of our animals, and as good as that is, there’s also a price – literally. Should you buy pet insurance? It all depends. If you have a dog that’s healthy and rarely goes to the doctor, you may as well save your money. But if you have a dog with chronic health problems, you just might save money in the long run by paying up front for pet insurance.

To obtain rate quotes on medical coverage, contact a pet insurance company and weigh your options.
