Pet Insurance 101

Pet Insurance 101

Medical care for pets is often just as expensive as for people. Having a good pet insurance policy in place for your pets has become even more popular.

When looking at pet insurance companies, it is best to keep in mind a number of factors including if the inherited conditions are covered, are existing diseases covered and what the waiting time before the policy becomes active is. Bear in mind that the level of the deductible, the percentage of the reimbursement you can expect and the ease of the claims process should the need arise. Other factors which may come into this equation with pet insurance are also the age of your pet and its location in the country.

Check whether you are given the opportunity to select your own veterinarian and how much the yearly or lifetime pet insurance is, if this is offered.
