Dog Behaviorist Reveals a Solution for Rising Vet Costs

Dog Behaviorist Reveals a Solution for Rising Vet Costs

Cesar Millan - Spot Chairman

Let me ask you a question pet parent...

Do you think it's okay for someone to euthanize (put down) a pet if they can't afford the expensive or prolonged treatment?

What if I told you that we no longer have to choose between our wallets and pets life?... 

Our pets may be considered "family," but in the U.S. today with rising veterinary costs... 

...more Americans are choosing to put their pets to sleep rather than pay for expensive treatments.

Cesar Millan - Spot Chairman

In fact, the rate of people seeking to euthanize their pets because they can't afford treatment is rising between 10% and 12% a year, according to Mark Kumpf, Director of the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center in Dayton in Ohio.1

And many pet owners are avoiding vets altogether... Often leading to long term damage.

Did you know…

That every 6 Seconds a pet owner is faced with a vet bill for more than $1,000*?...

Pets are such an essential part of our lives… welcoming them into our world has many benefits like increased exercise and companionship.

There are also several health benefits to owning a pet…

...including heart disease prevention...

...stress reduction, and lowering blood pressure.2

Investing in a pet to live a longer life might just keep a person’s healthcare costs down, too.3

However, a lot of people are diving into pet parenthood without knowing how owning a pet might impact their wallet.

On average, dog owners spend $235 a year, while cat owners spend $130 a year.4

... for just routine care.

Let's say a medical emergency arises...

Emergency vet visits cost owners a yearly average of $349 for dogs, $154 for cats.3

Now let's add surgical vet visits...

...costing owners a yearly average of $474 for dogs, $245 for cats.3

If you're worried about the costs - both financial and emotional - that come with caring for a sick pet, you should consider my solution...

...That I will reveal below.

 

Cesar MillanHi, I'm Cesar Millan,
You may know me from my best-selling books or TV shows in which I share my techniques for rehabilitating dogs and training people to be calm, mindful pack leaders.

I've spent the last 25+ years rehabilitating dogs and training humans. My techniques have been showcased in over 100 countries… 

...but not many people know my personal story.

…and how I was led to carry the secret to your pet's happiness. 

I remember telling my mother when I was a boy that I would be the best dog trainer in the world. 

And I did... But the road to success hasn't been an easy one.

My interest in dogs began on my grandfather's farm in rural Ixpalino, Mexico, where I grew up.

We didn't have electricity, but I never recall feeling "poor." In my young eyes, that farm was paradise. 

And always there, in the background, were the dogs...

...usually living in loosely formed packs of five to seven.

The dogs always felt like a part of our family, but they weren't anything like "pets" in modern America...

...The farm dogs all worked for a living... They helped keep the other animals in line alongside or behind my grandfather as he herded the cows.

 The dogs always protected us. 

And we never trained them to do this...

Their loyalty was purely instinct. 

I wanted to know what the world looked like through their eyes, and I tried to understand them from the inside out.

Spending hours each day, walking with them or just silently observing... trying to figure out how their wild minds worked. 

The dogs on our farm were my real teachers in the art and science of
canine psychology… Which helped me later in my career.

When I came to America, I was 21, spoke no English... Taking odd end jobs, while sleeping on the streets of California.

My career really started when I landed a job grooming dogs...

I quickly gained a reputation for my calming effect on even the most difficult dogs…

...eventually leading me to the show business.

I had great success with my series, running in over 100 countries!… So incredibly grateful!

Now I'm crossing a new horizon...

...and have a mission:

Throughout my experience training people and rehabilitating dogs, I developed a formula to help ensure I am being a responsible pet parent. 

Part of that formula is insuring your pet.

The purpose is to teach people how to protect their pet's so they can lead happier, longer lives.

Because our furry family deserve the same loyalty in return.

 And if you're anything like me… when your pet is suffering, you'll do just about anything to save them… no matter the cost. 

 It’s our duty as pet parents to make sure our family receives proper medical attention.

But the harsh reality is... vet bills are high, and they're only expected to continue to rise...

Which may cause people to choose to put down their pets... to avoid going into debt. 

That's what drove me to take action...  

I am excited to announce that I recently joined forces with Spot Pet Insurance.

The solution to helping make sure your pet gets the proper medical attention they deserve… without breaking the bank.

But I have to be honest with you...

When I first heard about insuring a pet, my clients would say things to me like:

“Humans can hardly afford insurance for themselves let alone for their pets”


“Why not worry about how to pay for a vet bill until you HAVE to”

And…

“They’ll never approve my dog for coverage… I'll just pay with the money from my savings if I have to.” 

And I didn’t necessarily disagree with them…

But what opened my eyes was... hearing so many horror stories about pet owners drying out their life savings…

...even euthanizing their pet, because they couldn't afford rising vet bills.

Messages I receive daily:

*Individual results may vary.

*Individual results may vary.

That's when I realized that pet insurance was the missing variable to my formula.

Spot has plan options that offer thousands in coverage for about $1 a day.

*Rates vary depending on plan type, species, breed, age, and location of pet being insured.

… The best part is if you change your mind, you can cancel anytime. Spot will also give you a 30-day money-back guarantee*, assuming you haven’t yet filed any claims. 

*Not available in NY 

It takes very little commitment and time to get started… and the quote is free.

...Less than 30 seconds of your time, to be exact. 

In fact, Spot wants to make sure all your pets get covered… If you have a second pet, Spot will take 10% off of your additional pet policy.

Here's Spot's Coverage

If you respect your dog and want to worry less about their medical costs wiping out your savings... 

Then see if Spot’s coverage is right for you…

Nothing to lose, only wellness to gain.

I Must Warn You...

I URGE you to take action immediately before it's too late…

If your pet is healthy, I know it's hard to imagine anything bad happening to them.

Life's unpredictable and it's important to prepare. I've seen so many pet owners drying out their savings account...

...even euthanizing because they couldn't afford to save their pet's life.

I am warning you in case of an unavoidable accident.

So, don't fret & take action!

Pet Owners Love Spot!

Before I Go...

I am not a veterinarian by any means… but I do have over 25 years of experience rehabilitating dogs. I've spent enough time around them to know what's right and what's wrong for them… 

I'm sharing this with you today because I believe from the bottom of my heart, that insuring your pet is the responsible thing to do.

I am aware that pet insurance is a new concept and why it may raise some eyebrows.

That's why I want to at least inform you on how important it is to do whatever it takes to protect your family. 

...We live in an imperfect world, where we can't predict the weather. 

Your pet could live a long, healthy life with no accidents…Or something horrific may occur when you least expect it. Are you prepared for unexpected vet bills?

Stop choosing your wallet over your family. 

Let's get the most life, years, and love from our pets… They're worth it.
