Ask the Vet with Patricia Kennedy Arrington, DVM

Jefferson Animal Hospitals and Regional Emergency Center, Jefferson

QuestionIs it a good idea to get medical insurance for my pet, who is already two and pretty healthy??


AnswerMedical Insurance for your pet is one of the best investments you can make. Some are only for emergencies, while others pay for wellness services such as vaccines, dental procedures, heartworm and fecal testing, and spaying/neutering. Most do not cover pre-existing or congenital diseases, just like human insurance, and some breeds are exempt from some policies. Each policy has different deductibles and different coverage, so choose one that works well for you and your pet. You can visit PetInsuranceReview.com to read reviews from pet guardians who have invested in health insurance, compare coverage and rates from multiple insurers, and get free quotes. With most companies, pet guardians file their own medical claims for reimbursement of already-paid medical expenses.
