How to Afford Veterinary Care with Dog Insurance

Dog Insurance 101

Dogs delight pet parents with their playfulness, curiosity and enthusiasm. But all that exuberance can lead to trouble. Whether it’s a scrape at the dog park or a swallowed sock, accidents happen. And, just like us, dogs can get sick with all kinds of medical issues from everyday ear infections to more serious conditions, such as cancer. Just like you have medical insurance, there are dog insurance plans to help cover your pet’s treatment costs. Read a list of some of the most common accidents and illnesses for dogs.

Advances in veterinary medicine have given dogs a fighting chance to overcome even challenging medical problems. But the costs for these treatments and quality care overall continue to rise. Having dog insurance to offset costs is becoming more important every day. In fact, in 2010 US pet parents spent more than $13 billion on veterinary medical care—up 40% from 2006!*

“We bought this insurance to have for our dogs when they got older, but it has certainly helped more than we realized to have it while they’re young and rambunctious. It saves a lot of worry to know when something happens, we’ll be reimbursed.”
