When a pet emergency strikes, how financially prepared are you?
Veterinarian bills for an ill or injured pet can easily sky rocket, but even unexpected veterinarian visits can be financially problematic.
Did you know:
Here are 5 reasons to Consider Pet insurance:
1. Age and breed concerns. MetLife1 doesn't discriminate against specific breeds or the age of your pet. It can be more cost effective for a pet parent to buy a pet insurance policy when the pet is young because the premiums can be lower. If you’re adopting an older dog or cat, though, MetLife has no age cut-offs.
2. Veterinarian of your choosing. We never want to make a pet parent choose a different veterinarian. That's why MetLife policies allow you to pick your own veterinarian for your pet.
3. Budget conscious options. When you invest in a pet insurance policy, you pay a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual fee – which ever fits best into your family finances.
4. Peace of mind. As a general rule, most pet insurance policies reimburse for covered veterinarian expenses up to 80% of costs after you’ve met your deductibles.
