Pet Health Insurance

The cost of health care for your pet can be high, especially if that care requires hospitalization or surgery. Pet health insurance can help lessen the financial burden of care and allow you to choose the most appropriate treatment for your pet. There are several providers of pet health insurance with many options for coverage.

Some of the important questions to ask when comparing pet health plans are:

  • Is preventive care (vaccination, dental care, flea control, etc.) covered?
  • What are the limits of coverage per incident and over the pet’s lifetime?
  • Is there a deductible and how much is it?

The following companies are just a couple of the more commonly used pet health insurance providers:
