It goes without saying that we embrace dogs, cats and other companion animals as full-fledged family members. Many of us scrutinize pet food labels to pick healthy choices, scour the pet supply store for just the right bed and delight in treating them to oodles of toys. Yet, as concerned as we are about their health and well-being, many of us don’t have the finances in place to care for our pet in the event of an emergency of a catastrophic event.
That’s where pet insurance comes in. You don’t have to have that awful conversation with your spouse, “Do we pay the mortgage or Fluffy’s surgery?” Many insurance companies have low monthly payments with reasonable deductibles. Some companies can approve claims in a matter of minutes while you’re standing at the front desk of the emergency room with Fluffy waiting in the back.
