Why Pet Insurance May Be a Good Idea if You Live in Louisiana

With alligators, swamps, and hurricanes, there’s no shortage of risks facing Louisianian pets. But it’s not just these dramatic dangers that pet parents may worry about. Louisiana has the highest levels of air pollution in the country due to the state’s petrochemical industry.2 This poses a long-term health risk to dogs and cats, as well as their humans. Enrolling in a pet insurance plan early is a good way to help ensure your furry family can get the care they need when they need it. From routine exams to accidents and unexpected illnesses, pet insurance can help offset some of these costs.

Residents of larger cities, like New Orleans and Baton Rouge, may pay a higher monthly premium. Meanwhile, residents in more rural areas, such as Bridge City, could see lower rates.
