Pet Insurance is a topic covered this week on NPR. The topic is called "Health Insurance: Now for Your Dog, or Hedgehog." Few news stations report on health topics as well as NPR, or even offer such varied topics that matter so much to animal owners or care-givers. It was only a matter of time before we were updated on the latest information concerning insurance for our pets.
Many of my clients have related the exorbitant costs they have faced with a pet's medical bill. Many love their pets and do not want to place a dollar limit on what they will spend...but that isn't a realistic or pragmatical way to view the issue of pet care. Pet Insurance is making a strong push forward in our society. At present, the average annual cost for pet health-care is $80.00. In fact, pet-patient,owner, and veterinarian experience a medical relationship much like Americans did at one time with their own health-care. Yet, it seems that medical advances and the rising cost of pet health-care will be bringing the insurance question for animals into our own homes. Go to NPR to get the full story. The story is fascinating.
