Covering Pet Medical Costs
Pets are members of the family, especially the feline and canine varieties. When they're hungry we feed them and when they're sick we take care of them. And when a medical emergency arises we do what must be done and worry about the bill, which can skyrocket into the thousands of dollars, later. Some dog and cat owners opt for pet insurance to cover such contingencies. But this product, too, comes at a hefty price.
We queried five pet insurance providers about why cat and dog owners might consider insurance, what they can do to minimize the cost of premiums, and what fine print to watch out for.
