February 25, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Dog insurance can be a complicated matter for some, but it needn’t be anymore…

Most dog owners spend on average $479 on pet bills in one year alone with the price rising more and more each year. Dogs are one of the most expensive dogs to keep and within minutes of your dog having an injury you could be faced with the decision of whether you want to put your dog down, or fork out a not uncommon $5000 for repairs to help you pet have a better life.

There are normally three different types of pet insurance to get that can cost anywhere from $10 to $30 a month but each type has its own benefits and can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

Routine coverage is the most basic and covers Annual physical exams, vaccinations,

Heart worm detection & treatment; spay/neuter procedure, teeth cleaning, prescription medication for flea control, and general comprehensive health screen.

Major medical coverage is for more serious incidents and thus more financially draining injuries and health problems. This covers Accidents and Serious Illnesses, MRI, CAT Scans, and X-rays, Surgeries, Hospitalization, Removal of ingested foreign objects, and Snake bite treatments.

The third coverage is for cancer related issues and coverage for this as well will cost extra on top of the other options and covers Chemotherapy, Radiation treatment, and post-treatment medications and nutritional supplements.
