When people reach out to me asking what I think is the most important thing to do for their pet, my answer is always the same – Get pet insurance! Why am I such a huge advocate for pet insurance? The reason is really very simple, It’s not IF you will need insurance, it’s WHEN you will need it. The last thing that you ever want to be faced with is having to make medical decisions for your beloved pet based on your financial situation or how much financial hardship that the best and most appropriate medical will cost.

Real Life Experience
Pet Insurance has allowed us to get Ruger and Sky the best veterinary care that they needed when they needed it. Ruger had dental surgery to remove an oral growth, x rays for gastroenteritis,miscellaneous lab work, and monitoring.

Most of this care would have put a strain on our family financially without insurance. It has allowed us to choose the best and most appropriate veterinarians, specialists, surgeons and clinics for Ruger to receive care. Being able to choose the best specialists and surgeons for our pups, without the worry of a financial burden or having to make a tough decision based on the cost of care is priceless.

There are many pet insurance companies out there to choose from, but in my experience, Safeco Insurance® and the Hartville Pet Insurance have been amazing. They make the process so easy, from filing a claim to quick reimbursement. I hope that my experience can help others and increase awareness of the importance of pet insurance to take some of the stress out of already difficult situations when our pets are faced with an unexpected illness or medical emergency.

Pet Insurance is a small price to pay for unconditional love and your peace of mind. Talk to a one of our agents today to get a policy that’s right for you and your pet.
