Pet insurance helps ensure that you’re not surprised with a large vet bill during your pet’s life. Paying a small amount per month for pet health insurance, along with co-pays and a deductible (in some cases), allows you peace of mind, knowing that your pet’s veterinary care will always be within your budget. Most pet owners we serve at our Radford Animal Hospital have pet insurance and feel that the insurance has been a terrific investment in their pet’s future health.
Pet owners don’t have to settle for one-size-fits-all pet health plans. You can ensure your pet’s healthcare needs are met with a variety of different plans and, as your trusted vets near Radford, we’ve created a pet insurance chart to help you. Refer to our chart below to determine which type of pet insurance plan might work best for you and your pet.
The pet insurers we are most familiar with at our Radford Animal Hospital are Trupanion, Veterinary Pet Insurance, and Nationwide pet insurance companies. Here is some advice from our associate veterinarian, Dr. Hansen, about pet insurance. Dr. Hansen advises pet owners to save themselves some of the anguish that comes when a pet is ill, by "signing up for pet insurance BEFORE you need it."
“We have many clients who comment that they wish they had pet insurance, after their pet has an injury, emergency, or is diagnosed with a serious medical condition,” says Dr. Hanson. “We had a client who's pet insurance company covered over $20, 000 towards his pet's cancer treatments, several years ago.”
Needless to say, pet health insurance saved this caring pet owner from potentially going broke--while trying to support his pet throughout the serious illness. The insurance allowed the pet owner to provide the best care and most advanced treatments for his pet during the illness. The insurance helped prevent pain, extend the pet's life, and increase his quality of life.
For most of us who have pets in our families, (including the vets at Radford Animal Hospital), keeping our pet healthy, happy and by our sides for as long as possible is a big priority. Pet health plans are one excellent way to do that. Pet insurance allows you to give your beloved animal companion all the kindness and support that your pet has given you, during your lives together.
Vets near Radford typically have many happy examples to share about how pet health was saved by owners with the foresight to purchase pet health plans. If you've been considering doing so, we heartily recommend pet health insurance to all our clients and pet patients. We hope to see you soon for your pet's next wellness visit and check up!
