What is Pet Insurance for Dogs and Cats?

Human health insurance or medical insurance is a type of insurance that covers the whole or a part of a person’s medical expenses. Pet insurance is similar to our pets. In exchange for a premium, pet insurance can help cover your pet’s eligible medical expenses if they get unexpectedly sick or hurt.

Our pets can encounter health risks through air, food, water, injuries, etc. These can include canine distemper, influenza, heartworms, leptospirosis, external parasites, etc. for dogs, and roundworms, rabies, campylobacteriosis, salmonellosis, cryptosporidiosis, giardiasis, etc. for cats. We want to get them the best possible care out there, but the vet bills for accidents and illnesses can show big numbers at times. This is where a pet insurance plan could help. Learn more about how much pet insurance is and how to choose the best pet insurance option.

Why is pet insurance important in Oregon?

Porcupines

In Oregon, the most common animal species to cause conflict with pets in the state are porcupines. If encountered, our pets may try to fight off a porcupine due to their natural instincts. Porcupines pose a major threat because they can impale our pets with quills that require a veterinarian and anesthesia to remove. Aside from the risk of quills, porcupines can also carry diseases that they transfer to our pets including rabies, distemper, and other viruses. While outdoors, always keep your dog on a leash to help prevent them from provoking an attack with a porcupine (or other wildlife) if you should encounter one. Porcupines are typically slow moving and nearsighted, so if you and your dog keep your distance, you shouldn’t be in much danger. A Porcupine will typically not attack unless they feel threatened.

Canine Distemper Virus

CDV is a viral disease that can affect the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and central nervous systems of pets. This virus spreads through air, food, infected bedding, toys, food bowls, etc. Higher chances are it being inhaled as it cannot survive on surfaces for long. It can attack our pet’s tonsils and lymph nodes. Diarrhea, fever, lack of interest in food, lethargy, paralysis, and seizures are some of the symptoms. Although this doesn’t have a direct cure, quick diagnosis and treatment can help stop it from being fatal. The state of Oregon has seen several cases of CDV in the recent past.
