That’s where pet insurance comes into play.
To protect themselves from the high cost of pet care, many owners are turning to pet health insurance plans or pet health care coverage. These insurance plans cover both the costs of routine health care as well as the costs for medical care administered due to illness.

- Routine and emergency veterinarian office visits

Every pet owner, especially dog owners, needs to carefully consider purchasing liability insurance for several very good reasons. The first and foremost reason for considering this type of insurance has to do with the simple fact that dogs do bite. Each year, nearly five million people in the US along are bitten by dogs. And the liability payments associated with these accidents now approach one billion dollars annually. The second reason for carrying this type of pet insurance is because it helps to protect those that are around the pet most frequently. That means protecting friends and relatives from the expense associated with a dog-related injury.
To be competitive and give you more choices, each pet insurance company offers slightly different plans. And that’s the single biggest reason you should work with us here at SIG and carefully compare the options to make an educated decision.
