Why You Should Consider Pet Insurance for Your Family Pet

For many people, their pets are a part of their family and like any family member, we want to make sure that they are protected, should the unexpected happen. Having pet insurance can help protect you and your pet should an unexpected accident or illness occur.

Why you should consider pet insurance for your family pet:

  • 1 in every 3 families pet will visit a vet this year for treatment
  • 40 percent of all vet fees are caused by unexpected illnesses or accidents
  • less than 15 percent of family pets are covered by pet insurance
  • 2 out of every 3 pet owners have admitted to having gone overdrawn at some time during their lives in order to pay for their pet’s vet bills.

These statistics can be shocking, but more so is the cost than an unexpected accident or illness can cost pet owners, not only in relation to money, but also with heartache. Owning pets can be very expensive and unexpected vet bills an extremely expensive and accumulate instantly. Having pet insurance can help cover the cost of the unexpected. For many of us, our pets are seen as a member of our family and making sure that they are protected can mean the difference between costly vet bills and that added piece-of-mind should the unexpected occur.
