Why Buy Pet Cat Insurance?

Before pet cat insurance became widely available cat owners who were not independently wealthy had to leave the health of their beloved pets up to fate. Because of the extreme cost of many diagnostic and/or lifesaving procedures ordinary pet owners had to choose between going into crippling debt or “allowing nature to take it’s course.” Now that pet insurance is so widely available this is happily no longer the case.

Why Buy Pet Cat Insurance?

Advances in veterinary medicine over the last few years have made a vast assortment of medical procedures and diagnostic test available that were only dreamed of before. Your vet can diagnose and treat a great many things quite quickly and easily that would have forced you to put your beloved pet cat down not too long ago.

Sadly, these treatments and tests are NOT cheap. Without pet cat insurance you may not be able to afford some of these simple procedures that could save your cat much pain, suffering or even it’s life. Or, if you do move forward with the treatments it could put your financial future at risk.

Why put yourself into the position of having to deny your feline friends the medical care they need or taking on crippling debt to do so when it’s not necessary?

Pet Cat Insurance Is Affordable!

In today’s pet insurance market there is a plan for every budget. From simple “accident only” plans that start as low as $5 a month (yes, some are really that inexpensive) to all inclusive plans that include well visits and routine treatments such as vaccines and worming.

The thing to keep in mind when shopping for affordable pet insurance is you get what you pay for. Also, “the devil is in the details” so read the fine print. You don’t want to wait until you need your insurance to find out the policy you purchased doesn’t cover the treatment you need to have done.

Shop Online For Pet Cat Insurance

Spend some time online shopping around. Become familiar with what the various pet insurance companies offer. (see our “Pet Insurance Review” section for help with this) Then when you know what you want contact several companies, tell them what you want and ask them to give you a quote. Shop around until you find what you are looking for at the best possible price.

If after all this you decide pet health insurance still isn’t for you I highly recommend you take the money you would have spent on your “perfect pet insurance policy” and put it into a savings account each month. That way when the time comes that you need vet assistance for your cat (and we all know this happens more often than we’d like) you’ll have something to defray the expense and hopefully keep you from having to make an unfortunate choice
