Pet insurance covers your unexpected and expensive vet bills

Unexpected veterinary bills can be costly, and cancer alone costs over $2,900 a year on average (according to Pets Best 2016 claims data). Unfortunately, many of us have been there or we know someone who has a dog or cat that suddenly needed emergency (and expensive) medical care. Prepared to cover unexpected and expensive veterinary bills. Plus on-going expenses for chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and allergies.

What is pet insurance and how it works

Pet insurance covers cats or dogs and you can get a plan for pets aged seven weeks and up. You can pay monthly or annually and your cost depends on how much coverage you want. You'll choose a reimbursement option when you enroll. Once you meet your annual deductible, you'll get reimbursed for 70%, 80%, or 90% (depending on option selected) of your veterinary bills for all covered illnesses and injuries.

Keep in mind, this is different from Pet Injury Protection, which is included in an auto insurance policy that has collision coverage. Pet Injury pays certain amounts for medical care if your dog or cat gets hurt in a car accident.
