Why Pet Insurance Matters

Our dogs and cats live like royalty at home—and at the office! And if anything happened to one of our family members, we’d go to lengths to make them feel better. To us, pets are more than just dogs and cats; they’re members of the family. According to the American Pet Products Association, Americans spent an average of $15.73 billion on vet care in 2016! So when our carrier, Safeco, launched their new Pet Insurance program through Hartville, we jumped on board.

What’s Covered

We’re now offering pet health insurance for the furry babies you love, so you can keep them healthy and safe for less. Coverage is available for routine checkups, prescriptions, accidents and illnesses. Much like your own health insurance plan, with pet insurance you can choose your deductible, coinsurance, and limit. And you can customize your plan. If you just want wellness checks, you can choose only a wellness plan. If you just want something for accidents, you can select an accident-only plan.

Why It Matters

In 2017, CBS reported that “Treating common ailments such as cruciate joint injuries in dogs can cost around $3,480 while owners faced with a furry friend that swallowed something it wasn’t supposed to can expect to spend an average of $1,755, according to Petplan, a provider of veterinary health insurance. Cancer, which is diagnosed in 12 million pets annually, will set an owner back an average of $2,033.”

Having a pet insurance plan in place will let you can take even better care of your furbabies, without having to make a difficult choice.
