If your pup was this cute, you wouldn’t say no to their expensive bills, would you?
How much will your pet cost you?
Each year we spend between $700 and $1000 on Buddy. This doesn’t include his food. Surprisingly, I don’t feel too embarrassed about this. That’s because like most pets, Buddy has become part of our family. When someone you care about is sick or in pain, you’re going to want to help them. That’s why Buddy occasionally takes anti-depressants, goes to doggy physio and gets adjusted by a pet chiropractor. You can physically notice the results after treatment, and we go whenever he’s out of sorts.
Getting a quote and buying pet insurance is quick and easy. I know this because I called PC pet insurance last Friday. With them, you can get insurance over the phone or online within a matter of minutes. PC pet insurance helps protect you from high bills in the event of an accident or illness with your pet. Coverage can also include compensation if you cancel your holiday because your pet is hospitalized for a covered and critical condition. Get this, it may even cover advertising and reward costs if your pet is lost.
I was most jazzed to learn PC pet insurance pays for alternative therapies the pet has received for treatment of an insured accident or illness (if ordered by a licensed veterinarian for the treatment of a covered illness or accident). This coverage includes acupuncture, chiropractic services, massage and physiotherapy! PC pet insurance isn’t a health plan, so you pay your practitioner upfront, submit a claim and then receive your reimbursement if approved.
There are different plans available to fit your budget and needs. Rates start at $9.95/month for cats and $10.95/month for dogs. Not that you can predict that sort of thing, but most pets will eventually become ill or perhaps have an unfortunate accident.
