4 Reasons to Invest in Pet Insurance

Whether you have a dog or a cat,  insurance for pets is an important part of properly caring for them. 

Whether you're on the fence about pet health insurance or simply want to learn more, here are a few reasons you can consider investing in insurance for all of your pets today. 

You Can Pick Your Own Veterinarian (and Keep the One You Have) 

This is an area where pet insurance is nothing like human insurance. Rather than having to go through a specific in-network health provider, insurance for pets allows you to choose the veterinarian you'd like your dogs or cats to see. 

No Discriminatory Policies 

If your dog or cat is predisposed to a certain kind of disease (as many pure-bred dogs are), it won't disqualify them from receiving pet insurance. While it's important to invest in pet health insurance plans when your furry friends are young, there's nothing stopping you from investing later in their lives, too.  

Prevents Additional Spending 
Pet insurance plans may allow you to budget pet care costs, while also keeping you from dipping into emergency funds reserved for the humans in your family.
