Do You Know Your Pet's Medical History?

Of the 90 million dogs owned in the US, nearly a quarter were taken home through animal shelters and humane societies. That is 22.5 million dogs! Unfortunately for many dog owners, dogs that come from these centers often do not have clear medical histories. 

Vaccines during puppyhood can protect your pal from an ugly list of scary diseases. According to the American Kennel Club, some can even be deadly.

Bordetella Bronchiseptica

This bacterium is the primary cause of kennel cough. Whooping, vomiting, seizures and in rare cases, death can occur from this infection. Guard against this by reviewing your pet insurance coverage options.

Canine Hepatitis 

Affects the liver, kidneys, spleen, lungs, and the eyes of the affected dog. Owners may confuse vomiting symptoms for something else. Vets can only treat the symptoms, but cannot fully cure your dog once it has contracted this highly contagious virus.

Corona Virus 

Has your dog stopped eating, begun to vomit or have diarrhea? It may have a virus in its gastrointestinal system. Consider pet insurance before it's too late.

Bringing home a new pet can be overwhelming for all types of pet owners. Vaccines are just the start; but, owners who decide to adopt face even more uncertainty. 

The chance of coming across high vet bills is much greater in the first year when your pet’s health history is unavailable. Are you prepared to pay if this happens to you? If you’re not a new pet owner, but planning on welcoming another member into your home, are you prepared to spend thousands on an injury that stems from your pet’s ruffing around?

Your wallet should never dissuade you from providing your pet with the proper care. Too many pet owners are forced to decide between their pet’s health and their wallet. Add that to normal costs for pet food, toys, and other equipment - you’re probably shaking your head.1

 

When is the last time you thought about pet insurance? Here are five types of coverage that are covered by pet insurance.

Accidents

Spot Pet Insurance takes care of costs for injuries and emergencies related to your pets accidents, like bite wounds, cuts, broken bones,  foreign objects that get stuck, and toxic ingestions.

Illnesses 

With your Spot coverage, you’ll be refunded for the costs of major and minor illnesses, such as cancer, arthritis, hypothyroidism, digestive problems, and UTIs. 

Hereditary Coverage

Cover the costs of inherited conditions and birth defects that don’t show symptoms until later in your pet’s life, like heart disease, IVDD, eye disorders, and hip dysplasia. 

Behavioral Issues 

This coverage can help with the costs of vet visits for behaviors that may be related to anxiety or compulsive behavior, like excessive licking, fur pulling, and destruction of the home. 

Chronic Conditions 

Spot coverage can help with the costs of veterinary visits for concerning behaviors that may be related to anxiety or compulsive behavior, like excessive licking, fur pulling, and destruction of the home. 

Is it Time to Consider Pet Insurance? 

Purchasing pet insurance is a personal decision.  Over your pet’s lifetime, are you stable enough to pay out a few hundred or thousands of dollars in an emergency? If not, you may want to consider the benefit of paying a regular monthly payment. Watching your pet suffer due to your financial situation is painful. Afford the care ahead of time.
