The average cost of an unexpected vet bill is estimated to be around $800 for cats and $1,500 for dogs (1.).
However, only 39% of Americans have enough savings to cover a $1,000 emergency (2.).
This implies that if our pet requires emergency treatment, few people will have the savings to cover it.
It’s the reason why pet insurance is so important for pet owners, but many still don’t have it.
Perhaps the variety of options and plans makes it difficult for pet owners to decide which pet insurance is best for them (and their pets).
This guide breaks down the various types of pet insurance and what to look for within them.
