What is Pet Insurance for Dogs and Cats?

Pet insurance is a way to help protect your pet against the cost of unexpected vet bills for accidents and illnesses. It is similar to the insurance we get for ourselves and our families, and pets are an integral part of our family. The vet bills can be huge when some unfortunate accident happens to our four-legged babies. This is where pet insurance can help. Despite the possible threats to your pet, you have help sleeping like a baby when you have pet insurance. Know more about does pet insurance cover vaccines and how does pet insurance work!

Life is unpredictable, and we know it. We, as mere humans, can’t control these circumstances. However, pet insurance can help protect your pet and your pocket.

Why is pet insurance important in Alaska?

Extreme Heat

Everyone likes a sunny day but to a limit. Anything in excess can be bad for health. Extra exposure to the sun can cause sunburns, heatstroke, lethargy, and even cancer. And this is not just for humans, but also for your pets like dogs and cats. Your dog can become a victim of overheating in the weather of Alaska, which is known for its extreme heat. The repercussions can be severe including excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, weakness, seizures, diarrhea, a body temperature of over 104 degrees, or even collapse. Dogs can even get sunburned.

Black Bears

Alaska is home to many different bear populations, including the Grizzly Bear. Alaska is home to about 100,000 Black Bears and 30,000 Brown Bears statewide. Although it might seem like a run-in with a bear is unlikely, our pets can prompt a bear attack if encountered. If your dog encounters a Black Bear, they could get into a fight and your dog could end up getting severely hurt. These injuries can lead to infections if not treated. While outside or exploring with your dog in Alaska, best practices include keeping your dog leashed with a close eye at all times.

Severe winter storms

From summer thunderstorms to winter storms, Alaska experiences it all. Blizzards, lightning, and thunderstorms can all occur here. Now, not every dog has a dense double coat that protects it from the cold. And even if some do, the temperatures in extreme winters can drop to -60.8°F, which can be pretty dangerous for your pets. It won’t just affect its mood but also lead to diseases like frostbite, hyperthermia, etc. And for dogs with pre-existing conditions like diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or hormonal imbalances, it can be very tough to tolerate colder temperatures. And how much we try to keep them inside, they may want to go out even during such climates, which then could lead to such unfortunate conditions.

Can I Get Reimbursed for Routine Teeth Cleanings?

However, Spot accident & illness plans cover treatments for dental illnesses.  The only treatment covered for dental accidents is tooth extractions. 

To get reimbursed on routine cleanings for your dog or cat’s general wellbeing, you’ll need to add preventive coverage to your base plan for a little extra cost per month. 

What Medical Records are Needed From My Veterinarian?

Medical records for your pet include doctor’s notes, laboratory results, and other documentation regarding any of your pet’s visits to the veterinarian. These notes are kept by your veterinarian and are not typically sent home with you. If you are filing a claim, you will need to submit the itemized invoice. Your veterinarian may also need to submit other medical records.
