Hello, Weirdos! This week’s blog topic is about Pet Insurance! We often see posts on our Facebook Group page asking for members’ advice on whether pet health insurance is worth having. There are varying opinions on the matter and a lot of research to do when looking at pet insurance. Just like human medical insurance, different companies offer different types of benefits, at differently monthly costs, and coverage varies across those companies. What we do all know is this- pet health emergencies arise and they can be pricey!! Even just routine vet care could cost the average pet owner hundreds to thousands of dollars a year, especially in a multi-pet household. Routine care is to be expected and most pet owners have this understanding already once they decide to take on a new pet. However, emergencies can come out of nowhere and those are the costs that we aren’t always prepared for- having pet insurance could help alleviate some of that stress when we are hit with an unexpected vet bill.
To dive deeper into the pet insurance world, I’d like to recommend the article “The Best Pet Insurance Companies of 2020,” written by Noel Davila on the website Money.com.
