1. US pet parents spent about $15.3 billion on veterinary care in 2014.

Veterinary care is the second highest pet care expense behind food! Part of the reason veterinary costs are rising is because more advanced treatment options are available for pets. That's great news, though it can be hard to afford these unexpected bills. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance can help you manage veterinary costs and give your pet the best care possible.

Pets are fearless, playful and bold. We love them for it, though those qualities can also lead to trouble. Even indoor cats can get injured when they crawl into a tight spot or nibble on a houseplant. The veterinary bills for pet accidents can quickly add up. Accident protection is at the heart of all of our plans, and all pets over 8 weeks old are eligible for this coverage.

3. More than 1 million pets are insured in North America.

More pet parents today are insuring their pets' health so they can better manage their veterinary bills. Often, pet parents have had a prior experience with a pet medical emergency, and they've seen how difficult it can be to deal with the bills. We all hope that nothing happens to our pets, but you’re among many pet parents who have decided it’s better to be prepared.
