Why pet health insurance you ask?

Pet Health Insurance - We love our pets, don’t we I mean when it comes to our cats, labs, terriers, and pet pigs, we go all out. Some of us even go so far as acquiring pet health insurance. Now, this is hardcore. I can’t say that I’ve ever done this myself, but I won’t knock the folks who do. For all I know, this could seriously save you some bucks in the long run. Especially if you cat or dog has health issues that require constant attention. I hear that Paris Hilton has insurance on her little Chihuahua. Although this information may have come from Globe magazine, who can really dispute it That girl has it all if money can buy it.

So I was chatting with this elderly lady at the vet. She was clearly admiring my Russian Blue cat, so I asked her if she wanted to pet him. She smiled with an eager YES. Then she began telling me a story. Don’t older people always do this Or is it just the ones that I encounter Anyway, she went on and on about how important pet health insurance is and then she told me that her cat had died. How awful, I thought. This poor old woman had pet health insurance and she still lost her pet. Well, it seemed that our local water had done a number on her cat’s kidneys before she was aware of what was going on. It was the hard minerals.

Apparently her feline required distilled water, as opposed to what comes out of your sink. The up-side was that her pet health insurance covered all of her random vet bills up until then. She had quite a few once her cat started to have trouble. It’s a bummer the cat’s affliction was caught too late. This woman made me promise that I would only give my cat distilled water. I said sure and she left a happy lady.

Do you require some pet health insurance for your K-9 or feline Take a gander at those past vet bills and you’ll know soon enough. First of all, how many animals do you have How often do they visit the vet, and do they have any health issues right now These are important queries that should be addressed. Depending on how much you’re forking out now, pet health insurance may be a more prudent path to take.
