Most animals suffer from gum disease after they reach the age of three years old. Puppies and Kittens, on the other hand, can suffer from dental disease. That’s because your furry babies’ mouths are used so often when eating, cleaning their bodies, or playing that it has a higher risk of catching bacteria. 

Without insurance, these procedures can be pricey, leading to being broke or, worse, leaving your trusted companions untreated. Having pet insurance will put your mind at ease as this will cover almost all medical expenses. Like most diseases, dental problems cause your pets extreme discomfort and pain. Treatment is necessary to give your trusted companion the life they deserve.

Why Do You Need Pet Insurance?

No one wants to think about this, but your fur babies will get injured or sick. This fact is inevitable and something that everybody needs to be prepared for. But as time passes, vet and medical bills become more and more costly. Without insurance, taking care of your pet can empty your pocket. 

In some grave situations, insurance may prevent the euthanasia of a pet whose owner couldn’t afford to pay for care. 

With many benefits and perks, pet insurance in any way is a win for you and your fur baby.

What Does Pet Insurance Cover?

Pet insurance comes with different benefits, limitations, and prices. Other pet insurance plans have an add-on that covers standard care, such as yearly examinations and flea or tick control. These are frequently known as wellness plans. However, wellness policies typically do not cover injuries, mishaps, and major diseases.

Many pet insurance companies provide bundled plans that offer the most extensive coverage. These policies might, however, have higher costs. 

1. Third-Party Liability

If your pet injures someone or destroys a property, insurance will cover the expenses and help you avoid a lawsuit.

2. Death By Accident Or Illness

Once your pet passes away, insurance will reimburse the price you paid for them or the equivalent of its financial value. They could also include coverage for the price of euthanizing, cremating, or burying your pet.

3. Overseas Travel

Most insurance will offer coverage when your pet becomes ill, gets in an accident, or needs veterinarian care while traveling. They also cover delayed travel and lodging expenses if you are forced to cancel a vacation because your pet gets gravely ill just before you are scheduled to depart.

4. Missing Pet

 If your pet disappears, most insurance plans cover the expense of placing signs and providing an incentive for the person who will return them.

5. Dental Treatment

Insurance provides coverage if your pet needs dental care. This policy means they can pay for dental care connected to accidents but sometimes do not cover illness-associated dental expenses. Other pet insurance with dental cover can provide dental exams for your pet, but they are limited to once or twice a year, depending on your insurance plan.

6. Pre-existing Conditions

Pre-existing illnesses were excluded from pet insurance before. But after many modifications, an Australian pet insurance company called Vet Choice included this in their policy. Helping many pets and owners treat life-threatening conditions that can cost a lot in the long run. 

After discussing and working closely with Australian veterinarians and the Australian Veterinary Association, they can develop a policy that covers previously treated illnesses if they reoccur.

Responsible Pet Ownership

Pets are family too. They are companions that save you from loneliness and a friend when you don’t have any. These beautiful souls deserve to be treated with respect and showered with love. 

Being a responsible and loving fur parent doesn’t end after you feed, bathe, and shelter them. You must also cater to their medical needs and ensure they are comfortable and happy. With pet insurance, all of this is possible.
