 Pet Insurance 

We strongly encourage all pet owners to consider obtaining pet insurance for their animals, as it helps protect you and your family from large, unexpected vet bills. Pet insurance is considered a form of property insurance and therefore does not function the same as human health insurance; pet insurance companies typically reimburse the owner after the pet has received care and the owner submits a claim to the insurance company. Most companies promise a quick turn-around time for reimbursement, and the claim forms can typically be faxed or e-mail to the company; a lot of companies even offer direct deposit into your bank account. 

While there are many variables in terms of what conditions are covered by certain companies, no company covers pre-existing conditions, therefore the optimal time to get a pet insurance policy is when you first get your pet, before they have a history of medical problems. We have included links to a few pet insurance companies below.  We encourage you to check out http://www.petinsurancereview.com/, which is a website that provides reviews from current pet insurance customers. Please feel free to contact us with any questions in regards to pet insurance.
