With varying ailments your pet can suffer from, it’s a high likelihood they will be given or prescribed medication to help treat whatever health issue they may have throughout their life. Whether it is an antibiotic, pain reliever, allergy shot, anxiety pills, insulin, blood pressure medicine, etc. – coverage of medications can vary depending on your insurance provider and selected coverage. 
How Does This Affect You?

Sometimes it isn’t the veterinarian visit and diagnosis that racks up the high cost – it can be medications too. Not having coverage for medications means you will have to foot the entire bill. With a pet insurance plan, you could be reimbursed for some of your expenses depending on your selected coverage. 2

How Much Does Pet Insurance Cost?
