Our Story:

We know this first hand. Less than a year ago our dog developed a tumor on her foot ... $2500 later and one toe less she is well ... BUT she now has dental disease and is scheduled for surgery next month ... estimate is between $1200 and $2000. Five years ago, I couldn't have afforded these bills ... as a pet parent, not being able to afford care health care for our loving companions is devastating. People are faced with this issue every day and it's heartbreaking.


Five Reasons:

Here are five reasons you might benefit from pet insurance:

  • Dogs and cats get sick
  • Dogs and cats get injured
  • Vet bills can be huge and come at unexpected times
  • It’s the responsible thing to do!
  • Savings account vs. pet insurance

When you think about it, we have health insurance, car insurance, and homeowners insurance to protect us financially against the unexpected.
