Buy Pet Insurance

One of the most important things you need to remember about kittens is that the vet care they require can cost a lot of money.

During your kitten’s first six months, you will have to take him to the vet to get vaccinations as well as to get spayed. You can have your kitten spayed when he’s as young as eight weeks of age, as long as he weighs at least two pounds. In addition to the routine care he needs, there is also the possibility that your kitten will get sick or have an accident. Vet costs can run up to as much as hundreds of dollars, which makes pet care insurance a good idea – as long as you know what you’re doing.

As with regular insurance, pet healthcare insurance covers the cost of vet services such as diagnostic and hospitalization services as well as preventive treatments such as vaccinations and boosters, annual exams, and spaying/neutering depending on the level of coverage that you get.

Here are some tips on how to get the most affordable insurance for your pet:

1. Make sure to get quotes from at least three insurance providers, so that you can compare their benefits and premiums. In addition, you should also consider what is not covered under the plan, such as preexisting conditions and chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes. To make comparison easier, you might want to create a table.

2. Don’t go with the policy that offers the lowest premium. While it may seem that you are saving money by doing so, you may end up paying more down the line when your pet needs treatment or a procedure that is not covered by the plan. Check out its benefit set to see if it will cover your pet’s chronic conditions as well as the treatments and procedures that your vet recommends. Most importantly, make sure you read the fine print of the policy before signing it since conditions that you might believe will be covered might actually require you to buy additional coverage.

3. Don’t wait until the last minute to ensure your pet. Insuring kittens when they are still young and healthy will ultimately save you more money in the long run than if you wait until your pet has gotten older and started to develop health conditions that will require vet care.

4. Find a policy that offers complete coverage which includes complementary and alternative care. This will give your vet the option to choose the best treatment plan for your pet rather than only having to only choose among the treatment options that are covered under the policy. Make sure that your policy treats these procedures as ‘standard’ without requiring you to buy additional coverage or limiting coverage for them.

5. Check the policy out at independent review sites. These sites allow owners of kittens to post their personal reviews and experiences with the insurance policy, as well as give them ratings. This is a great way to find out which insurance providers genuinely provide good coverage and services.
