When you become the owner of a cat or dog, you become responsible for the health and wellbeing of your companion for life.
With no “Medicare” available in the pet world, pet owners are responsible for paying the full costs of medical care for their furry family members. Pet insurance helps takes away the financial stress when serious injury or illness occur, especially when bills can range into the thousands of dollars.
Read on for more information about pet insurance and the benefits it can bring to you and your pet.
What is Pet Insurance?
Pet insurance has become increasingly popular in Australia in recent years, providing many owners with much-needed peace of mind for their pet’s wellbeing – as well as their own wallets.
Accidents, illnesses and other medical emergencies are an all too common occurrence for cats and dogs and can lead to some very expensive vet bills. When an animal emergency arises entirely unexpected, it can really take a hit on a pet owner’s bank account.
With pet insurance, you’ll always know that the quality of healthcare your pet receives isn’t limited by finances.
The Importance of Preventative Vet Care
Preventative healthcare is a veterinary approach that promotes regular health checks, vaccinations, dental care and nutrition as a way to keep your pets as healthy as possible. This can significantly reduce the need for emergency treatments or surgeries, including dental – which can be very expensive for pet owners.
By making sure your pet has regular visits to the veterinarian, you’ll be aware of any changes to your pet’s health and detect any potential problems. This allows cats and dogs to be treated sooner rather than later, increasing their comfort and overall health and saving you money further down the track.
