Oftentimes the most difficult part of caring for your pet is managing the veterinary bills. Annual well visits, vaccinations and the occasional illness can add up, and a single emergency visit is expensive. Meanwhile, we continue to strive to provide the best for our furry family members.
Northeast Ohio pet owners may be challenged a bit more because of the unpredictable weather of the region, ranging from extreme heat to bone-chilling cold and some intense humidity in between. Pets here are often treated for frostbite, heat stroke, burnt paws, and, with more than average frequency such parasites as whipworms and roundworms.
Knowing there’s a pretty good chance your pet will need treatment for more than the routine visit, pet insurance can bring peace of mind that finances won’t control your decision to get the best care for your pet.
In Ohio, where veterinary care continues to climb, there are several options for pet insurance at various levels of coverage with reasonable deductibles for as little as $40 a month. Online information allows you to investigate the available features and get a quote for free.
Pet insurance details
- Policies can range from catastrophic care only to including an annual well visit.
- Most policies do not cover routine care, such as spaying/neutering, vaccinations and worm preventative.
- Policies usually consider the breed of your pet, his age and conditions to which he may be vulnerable when presenting a quote.
Remember if you have pet insurance, you will pay your veterinarian at the time of service and request reimbursement from your carrier. This practice allows you to take your pet to any veterinarian you choose, but it can present a financial burden at the outset. You may want to discuss payment options with your veterinarian while you wait for your claim to be processed.
