Pet health insurance: who should buy it?
If you are on a tight budget and barely keeping yourself and your cat fed, what will you do if your cat starts to get ill? Sometimes treatment is only a matter of $200.00 - $300.00 and your cat is back on his feet. But what if you don't have an extra $300.00 when you need it?
In cases like that, pet health insurance might be the best bet. A beloved pet who is part of your family doesn't deserve to be euthanized over a few hundred dollars. But there is something you can do right now to help keep your cat alive if an expensive illness comes up.
Pet Health insurance is usually one time payment that covers your vet bills for any new illness. Read the fine print, the insurance usually won't cover routine shots and you'll have to keep your cat's shots up to date in order for the insurance to be valid. But if this is something you plan on doing anyway, insurance will help you pay for anything over an above those usual pet expenses.
Another reason why pet health insurance is a good idea is because of advances in technology and specialists in the field of veterinary medicine. With pet health insurance you'll be able to give your cat the best possible treatment without having to worry about the expense. If your cat needs a specialist, you'll be able to take your cat there and the vet will be able to use the most advanced medical treatments and the insurance will foot the bill.
Pet owners and vets can benefit from a third party paying for medical expenses but the really, the one who benefits the most is Kitty.
