Have A New Puppy? Consider Pet Insurance
Got a Puppy? Why Pet Insurance is Still a Vital Investment
If you’ve chosen a puppy to become a part of your family, then there is no doubt the home will be filled with excitement at having a new addition that is sure to bring joy for all. With so many new things to learn about your puppy, you will be preparing to make life as comfortable for them as well as for yourself.
There are various elements that people think about when deciding on a pet that ultimately influences their decision. House training, obedience training and of course cost of food and toys all come into play, but one aspect that can sometimes be forgotten is protecting a puppy against unforeseen accidents.
Many first time dog owners ignore the importance of having their pet insured, because their puppy should be in good health. However, unfortunately this isn’t always the case and your puppy is at a vulnerable age where they can pick up infections and diseases quickly; whether this be from other dogs or curiosity of new scents and tastes.
Many people feel they should start insuring their dog when they become older and health problems may be more likely, however any dog or puppy should have cover due to vet’s bills not being an expense many people can spare at short notice.
Many pet insurance providers cover for dogs and cats at reasonable rates, some for as little as $8.87. There are many policies to choose from and they all provide financial relief for pet owners. This can include those owing vet fees, those who require help towards finding a pet minder if you choose to go away as well as towards pet bereavement counselling when the worst does happen.
With so many competitive quotes out there, there is a policy to suit any budget and it leaves you with the peace of mind that your beloved pet can have the care and treatment they need regardless of what they have, and who doesn’t want the best for their pet?
It’s important to remember, as with babies, puppies are curious but as they don’t have hands to feel, they have to investigate with sense of smell and of course, their mouth. Therefore, this may result in a simple stomach upset that is treatable with antibiotics, but in serious cases, surgery may be necessary depending on the substance or object swallowed.
Make sure you’re insured so you can focus on welcoming your puppy into a new and loving environment; they’ll keep you on your toes enough without worrying about their health too!!
