Pet Insurance Blog - Puppy Photo

We hear from a lot of pet parents who decided to insure their pets after an earlier unexpected illness or injury brought financial worry on top of emotional stress over a sick or hurt pet.

Sadly, this is what happened to Michael B. from Athens, Ga.* He recently told us his story about why he now views pet health insurance as a necessity. We’re glad we can be there to help his Golden if she ever needs it!

“My Golden Retriever, Chloe, got sick and I was unable to afford the aggressive treatment that was required to keep her healthy. When she passed away, not only did I lose my pet, but I lost my companion. A few years later, my daughter surprised me with a Golden Retriever puppy named Kaylee for Christmas! I immediately bought ASPCA Pet Health Insurance because if something ever happens to her, I want the freedom to be able to explore all the medical options available. As I have health insurance for the human members of my family, it only makes sense to have it for the furry ones as well!”

The best time to enroll is when your pet is a puppy or a kitten so you can be prepared for the unexpected. That’s why we offer coverage for pets as young as 8 weeks old!
