I have been asked by different people out of curiosity “Is pet insurance really worth it”?

Well, the answer is “it depends” so let me explain. If you have a new puppy or kitten less than one year old with no pre-existing conditions and this pet is a member of “your family”, then by all means the answer is YES.

To those who have a dog or a cat that lives with them and is near and dear to their heart, pet insurance can be a great way to never have to worry about the cost of medical care. I have a little Chihuahua/Terrier mix named Skittles who has a degenerative eye disease which left her blind in her right eye and her left eye had the same problem just not as progressive. We knew she was going to eventually go blind from the illness.

Last Sunday little Skittles went totally blind from her illness. We have to give her 4 different medicines in both eyes for the rest of her life. The good news is that for the rest of her life, if we continue to pay our pet insurance premiums we only have to pay the deductible of $100 for that year and we get 90% reimbursement (the plan we chose). If we had not had this I am not sure where we would be, but the good news is that my wife and I do not need to worry about that scenario.

August is here and you have a couple of weeks to get everything you need before the school year starts, don’t wait till the last minute, or you could be at a loss, and the same thing holds true of your insurance needs. Stay on top of your policies and if you have had any major changes then I recommend contacting your insurance professional for a review to see if you are still adequately covered. If you do not have an insurance professional then feel free to contact Policy Point Insurance where we can help you pinpoint your policy needs.
