Preparing for a pet care emergency
Verzijlenberg Veterinary Hospital strongly recommends
Pet insurance might not save you money, but it might save your pet’s life as costs go up with the many advancements in veterinary medicine. Pets are members of the family, and we all want the very best for them. You want to choose treatments for your ailing or injured pet based on the best medical option available and not be restricted based on family finances. That is why our hospital would like to help you help your pet by paying your $100.00 deductible - or paying $100.00 towards your deductible - on your first OVMA or AAHA PetPlan Pet Insurance invoice from our hospital.
A lot has changed!
Top 5 Pet Insurance Myths:
While pet owners must be prepared to take on the financial responsibility of maintaining a pet, unexpected illnesses or accidents can take a toll on the bank account. Emergency medical procedures can be expensive! The cost of delivering procedures and treatments such as x-rays, ultrasounds, blood work, etc. for animals is comparable to human medicine. While these expenses are covered for humans, pets are not so fortunate.
Pet insurance provides a sense of security for pet owners by ensuring that they will have help paying for a veterinary bill in the event that their pet needs medical care.
The type of coverage you need also depends on various factors. The Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) provides information about factors to consider in choosing the type of coverage and suggests questions you may wish to ask the insurance provider.
