by | Apr 18, 2023

Hey there, fellow pet lovers! We know how much our pets mean to us, and we want to ensure they’re protected in case of accidents, illnesses, or routine check-ups.

At Page Insurance, we’ve got you covered with homeowners policies that can include pet insurance, as well as other options. We’re here to help you determine the best way to insure your pets, considering your specific circumstances and preferences. So, let’s dive into the wonderful world of pet insurance!

What on Earth is Pet Insurance, Anyway?

The basics of pet insurance

In simple terms, pet insurance is like health insurance for your pets. It helps cover the costs of veterinary care, giving you peace of mind and financial protection when your pet needs it most.

Different types of pet insurance coverage

1. Accident-only coverage: This is for when your curious furball (or feathered friend or scaly buddy) gets into a bit of trouble, like breaking a bone or eating something they shouldn’t have.

2. Accident and illness coverage: This includes accidents AND illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes, or allergies. It’s a more comprehensive option for protecting your pet’s health.

3. Wellness and preventive care coverage: This coverage helps with routine stuff, like vaccinations, dental cleanings, and regular check-ups. It’s a great way to ensure your pet stays happy and healthy!

Real-Life Example: 

Max, the adventurous pup, broke his leg after jumping off the couch. His accident-only coverage saved his owner thousands of dollars in surgery and rehabilitation costs!

So, How Do I Choose the Right Pet Insurance for My Pet?

Assess your pet’s needs.

Look at your pet’s age, breed, and overall health. Are they prone to certain health issues? Do they have any pre-existing conditions? These factors can help you decide which type of coverage is best suited for your pet.

Compare different insurance providers.

Shop around! Look at different insurance companies and the plans they offer. Pay attention to details like coverage limits, deductibles, and reimbursement percentages.

Consider your budget

Pet insurance costs can vary widely. The average monthly premium for accident and illness coverage ranges from $25 to $50 for dogs and $15 to $25 for cats. Determine how much you’re willing to spend on a policy and find one that fits your budget without compromising coverage.
