And it isn't just accidents that can strike unexpectedly. Illnesses such as gastroenteritis, bladder stones, diabetes, and kidney disease can all be an unwelcome, and costly, surprise. Pet health insurance provides peace of mind knowing you won't face future vet bills alone.
Some plans cover just accident and illness and offer a lower monthly payment. Other plans provide more extensive coverage, even reimbursing you for regular veterinary care such as vaccines and neutering. It's important that you understand your plan and what it covers thoroughly. Whichever plan you choose, we recommend locking in insurance while your pet is in good health, as pre-existing conditions won't be covered.
All insurance plans have some exclusions and we wanted to include some information about that as well. Below is a list of common pet insurance exclusions.
Be sure to check with any plan you are considering to see which of the following they will or will not cover.
