Why should I insure my pet?
Your pet is family, you want the best care for your pet and you want to protect your pet, and your finances.
The bond between pet owners and their pets is stronger than ever. Many pet owners consider their pet part of the family, and many would do anything to give their pet a long, happy, healthy life.
You want the best care for your pet
And now many pet owners can. Advances in veterinary medicine over the past decade give pet owners access to cutting-edge therapies and treatments available in human medicine. Veterinary medicine today allows us to give our pets the best care—but these advanced treatments and therapies also come with a cost.
You want to protect your pet, and your finances.
While veterinary medicine is far less expensive than human medicine, the costs can still put a strain on any pet owner hoping to pay out of pocket. Some of the most common injuries and illnesses, like a knee ligament rupture, can cost almost $3,000 to repair.
Common veterinary expenses for dogs and cats:
- Eats something they shouldn’t: $1400 – $1600
- Urinary obstruction in a cat: $2900
- Knee ligament tear in a dog: $3600
The concept of medical insurance for pets is fairly straightforward—pay a monthly premium to be covered for unexpected, costly veterinary expenses. That’s where a Trupanion policy steps in
