Imagine you just paid your annual income taxes, the mortgage, and paid your car note. Your bank account is very low, but you will be okay until next payday. You have enough to live on until then. Now imagine your furry baby is acting a little different. Not eating, barely drinking, and just moping around. It is enough to worry you, so you take her into the vet. After an xray, the vet tells worst news you could hear: The furry love of your life has a major obstruction in the intestines, and without a $3,000 emergency surgery she will die. The vet tells you that if you cannot afford the surgery, it may be more kind to humanely put your baby to sleep. This is a very sad and very disturbing scenario, but unfortunately this happens to thousands of pets every year. There are so many pet owners on Facebook and social media daily posting GoFundMe donation links in order to raise funds quickly for emergency pet surgeries. Sadly, many pet owners are not able to raise the funds in time. It is very unfortunate. This is why pet insurance is not a luxury item, it is a necessity.
Why Pet Insurance Is Critical?
In an emergency, a monthly pet insurance payment is absolutely more affordable and easier to manage than a $3,000 to $4,000 lifesaving veterinary surgery. Illnesses such as Parvovirus and Distemper can also incur lifesaving veterinary expenses in the same dollar range. Vaccinated pets are also susceptible to illnesses and diseases that they have been vaccinated against. The Parvo vaccine has an alarming failure rate of 11% in adult dogs and 28% in puppies! The Distemper vaccine has an overall failure rate of 20%. We really urge our puppy owners, and anyone reading this article to choose and compare pet insurance policies for your furbaby. More often than not, time is critical as well. There won’t be enough time to borrow funds or wait on a paycheck. Vets will need to perform a procedure right away. Please consider this when deciding whether your family needs pet insurance or not.
