The pet insurance world has come a long way and continues to change.
There have been a lot of changes over the past 5 or 7 years that have made pet insurance a much more attractive and affordable option for pet owners.
When does it make sense to invest in health insurance for your pet, and how can that make the difference in extending your pet’s life?
Earlier rather than later. What pet insurance tends to have in common with people insurance, is the issue of pre-existing conditions. So before there’s any medical emergency, history or problems, it’s best to get pet insurance.
Is 7 or more years of age too late for pet insurance or is that a good enough time frame to begin, dog or cat?
No, that’s absolutely not too late at all. Hopefully, by the time your dog or your cat gets to 7 years old, they don’t really have any major ongoing issues so there won’t be a problem from a pre-existing conditions standpoint.
How will pet insurance companies know about any pre-existing conditions?
When signing up for pet insurance, insurance companies will most likely request medical records from a veterinarian. That’s the way a determination is made about whether or not services will be covered or not.
