Many individuals treat their pets like children. And why not? Our pets give us so much, we should give back to them by protecting their health and safety. Pet insurance is one way to protect your dog or cat in emergencies, illness, and providing it with the care it needs.
I initially began looking into pet insurance when I had to take my cat, Milita to an emergency veterinary hospital for an abscess on her eye. The bill for this visit was well over $100 for a mere diagnostic test and medication. I was appalled and reluctant to take my cats back to the same hospital when the next urgent concern surfaced. But, I knew I couldn’t allow my cats to suffer when they needed urgent medical care.
VPI Pet Insurance is one of the many options pet owners may choose from in getting their pets the care they need. VPI offers plans for cats, dogs, birds, and even exotic pets! Being a cat owner, I ran a free quote on one of my cats. The quote informed me I could get excellent care, treatment, and preventive care for my cat for about $260 a year.
This may seem like a large amount of money to spend on pet insurance; however, if you consider the possibility of needing to take one or two trips to a vet hospital, the need for a couple of diagnostic tests, or treatment for a chronic condition, such as diabetes, you’ll realize the insurance more than pays for itself over the span of a year.
VPI offers different levels of coverage. Their Superior Plan covers emergency visits, hospitalizations, office visits to veterinarians, x-rays, diagnostic tests, and prescription medications among other procedures.
The Vaccine and Routine Care coverage ensures your cat can receive annual check-ups, vaccinations, spay and neuter services, protection against heartworm, and flea control with prescription medication.
VPI also offers a cancer rider, which allows for even greater protection against cancer for your pet.
Pet owners are able to combine different levels of the insurance plan in order to optimize protection and health care for their pets. For instance, I mentioned earlier that pet insurance costs about $260 through VPI per year. This figure includes benefits from the Vaccination and Routine Care coverage as well as the Superior Plan benefits. If you only need insurance to cover routine check-ups, vaccines, etc, you can purchase the Vaccination and Routine Care benefits for $99 per year.
The flexibility this particular pet insurance offers allows you to obtain the level of care you need for your pet without worrying about all the medical expenses that may incur from its care. Further, processing claims appears to be simple.
