Insuring the Health and Wellness of your Furry Friend
What are you doing to protect the furry members of your family?
When it comes to insurance, we often think of our own health, life, home or auto insurance policies. We take extra care to make sure our beloved family members and most valued possessions are covered in the event of an illness, accident or loss. But what about our pets?
What is Pet Insurance?
Pet insurance pays for veterinary treatment of your ill or injured pet. Some policies may pay out if your pet is lost or stolen and in some cases when they die. Plans may even cover well visits, vaccinations and neutering. Underwriters take into account the age of the pet, breed, your location, the amount of coverage you are requesting and the deductible. Pet insurance is similar to property insurance, in that the plan pays out after the policyholder submits a claim. Similar to your own health insurance, the following are part of most policies:
- Maximum payouts
- Waiting Periods
- No coverage for pre-existing conditions
Pet insurance offers you peace of mind when your pet isn’t well and can help to ease the financial burden of costly vet bills when you least expect it. Having the right coverage in place will ensure that your pet gets the care they need when they need it most.
We at Antalek & Moore love our furry friends too!
