3 Reasons to Consider Puppy Insurance

While puppies can be fun and fluffy, it's important to remember that their care is extremely important.

Pick Your Veterinarian

You may not always be able to pick your own doctor, but you can pick your own veterinarian.

Unlike human health insurance, pet insurance plans allow you to pick which animal hospital and veterinarian you would like your pet to see, 100% of the time. Rather than picking from a very specific list of doctors in your network, you simply pick the veterinary services you prefer, then send the bill to the insurance company as proof of qualified expenses.

No Discrimination

Whether you're looking for puppy health insurance or senior dog care, it's important to note that pet health insurance plans do not discriminate based on an animal's breed or age. While it's important to consider pet health insurance as early in your pet's life as possible, it's not necessarily a requirement.
