Is Pet Insurance Worth It? How Does Pet Insurance Work And Should I Get It?

A big misconception about pet insurance is that it’s too expensive. We spend hundreds of dollars on ourselves and our families each month for health insurance, yet we don’t get coverage for our furry “children.” In reality, paying $50 per month* for pet insurance could end up saving your pet’s life. Instead of being hit with an $8,000 vet bill because your dog needs cancer treatment, you can have a vast majority of it covered through pet insurance. The worst scenario is learning that your dog has cancer but turning down treatment because you can’t afford the bills. No one wants to face this decision, and signing up for pet insurance can cover most of the cost. Pet insurance allows you to make the best choices when an emergency arises instead of the least expensive ones. Pet insurance can also prevent a tragedy commonly referred to as “economic euthanasia.” This is when a pet owner can’t afford treatment and asks the vet to put down the pet rather than care for him due to financial limitations. For this reason, it’s vital to consider buying pet health insurance to protect your canine (and your wallet) from some of the most unfortunate incidents in a pet’s life. The table below shows which companies are in our top picks for the best pet insurance in 2022.
