Get Insurance For Your Pet’s Health

The tainted pet food crisis has sent a lot of animals to the vet's office, where bills can be hefty.

There is an option, pet health insurance.

Policies work just like health insurance for people.

Pick a plan, pay a premium, file a claim, and get a check.

The Humane Society recommends pet owners at least consider pet insurance.

"This just provides a safety net for the pet owner and allows him or her,
If there is a serious medical crisis for the animal, to be able to handle
The costs," says Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society

How do you know if you are getting a good deal?

Premiums can cost over $500 a year, and even the best plans may not cover everything.

So, read the fine print and do your homework, and buy insurance independently, not from your vet.
