Your pets are able to get pet insurance for their veterinary needs, the same way you have your health insurance to help pay for the costs of your medical treatment. Pet wellness and optimum health is more than just stopping by for annual check-ups and vaccines. It also means being prepared for any pet emergency or pet illness that might arise.

At Bayside Animal Hospital, we recommend that our clients invest in pet insurance as a form of preventative care for their furry friends. Some folks may feel it’s not worth the monthly cost, but when faced with a medical pet emergency that could cost thousands of dollars, they wish they’d prepared by getting pet insurance. We see situations where some people fear they won’t be able to get their pet treated due to the cost, even if their injury or illness is curable–which can be heartbreaking. That’s why pet insurance is always the best choice. Pets are family, and their longevity should be a top priority.

The Benefits of Pet Insurance

Routine preventive care such as check-ups are affordable to pay for out-of-pocket, but what if your pet suddenly requires surgery or is diagnosed with a condition that needs regular prescription medication? Funding these expenses on your own can quickly become unmanageable for many pet owners, and no one wants to see their beloved pet suffer.

Peace of Mind

First and foremost, pet insurance gives you a sense of security in knowing that your pet’s health is always protected. In the event of an accident, you won’t have to worry about whether or not you can save your beloved pet’s life due to the cost of surgery.

Choose Your Veterinarian

Even with pet insurance, you’ll still have tremendous freedom when it comes to your pet’s health. After you receive a veterinary bill, you’ll typically have to submit it to your pet’s health insurance provider to receive any reimbursement. The process depends on the insurance plan you choose, the benefits, and the coverage. This flexibility means you’ll be free to use your preferred pet health insurance provider, such as your local team here at Bayside Animal Hospital, or anywhere else your pet needs care.

Flexible Payment Options

Pet insurance usually allows you to choose from a variety of payment options when it comes to the cost of your pet’s health insurance. Some examples might be a monthly or quarterly premium, or the option to pay for the entire policy annually. Pet wellness doesn’t have a price tag, but we know it’s important to find coverage that works with your budget.

Investing in Your Pet’s Wellness

Ultimately, pet insurance is worth the minimal cost for the long-term protection for your pet. Its main goal is to assist in the event of an emergency or big medical bill. That’s one of the main reasons we’re advocates for pet insurance. You’ll never have to worry about being caught off guard by a multi-thousand-dollar veterinary bill. You’ll only have to find the right pet insurance plan to safeguard your pet’s health–the best plan for you and your pet.
