If your pet requires emergency surgery or develops a life-threatening illness, treatment can be expensive. Our team has compiled three benefits for health insurance for your feline friend.


#1: Pet health insurance can help cover regular wellness care

You may think pet health insurance helps only with accidents, injuries, and illnesses, but a comprehensive plan can also cover wellness care. Depending on the policy you purchase, your pet’s wellness exams, vaccinations, prescriptions, and sometimes dental care can be covered. Search for the policy that provides the level of coverage you want for your four-legged friend. 


#2: Pet health insurance can be a literal lifesaver in an emergency

Your mischievous kitty ate something they weren’t supposed to—again. This will be the third foreign body surgery since bringing your new kitten home, and your savings account is tapped out. In these situations, pet health insurance can save your feline friend’s life by covering a large portion of their bill. Emergencies, accidents, and illnesses are the most common conditions covered by pet health insurance. 


#3: Pet health insurance offers extended treatment options

If your pet develops a condition that will not respond to traditional medicine, pet health insurance can provide coverage for alternative therapies. For example, if your cat suffers from intervertebral disc disease, but their condition is not improving despite pain medication, you can investigate other options, such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, and physical therapy. While insurance typically covers surgical procedures, more comprehensive plans can cover alternative therapies to provide your pet with an integrative treatment plan.
