For most of my life, I have owned a pet. I love animals and just can't imagine not having a little furry critter running around my home. I've featured my boxers on here many times over the years, so long-time readers know that I don't just consider them "pets", they are definitely a part of my family. They are my little babies, and just like with real babies, there is a lot of maintenance and expense involved in raising them.
Food, treats, toys, grooming, vet bills. It all adds up. Especially those vet bills! I was just going through all of my paperwork from the time we brought the dogs home as puppies and was kind of floored at how much money we've spent on medical care for our dogs over the past five years. Aside from routine visits, we've had several unexpected emergency trips to the vet that really hit us in the pocketbook, and like with most emergencies, getting hit with huge veterinarian bills at those times just wasn't ideal for us.
Like the time one of the dogs had to have eye surgery. Bam! We were hit with an $800 bill. Then, as the incision was healing, one of the stitches tore. Of course it was late at night, so we had to make a trip to the emergency vet clinic to have that same eye stitched back up. The cost for the repair? $187!
Having spent almost $1,000 on emergency vet services in such a short amount of time, it really would have been beneficial for us to have opted for pet insurance to help with those unexpected medical bills. Back then, I never even knew that you could get insurance for your pets, but now that it has been brought to my attention, we are quite intrigued. We insure ourselves and our family members to cover our medical needs, why not our pets as well? I recently came across Healthy Paws Pet Insurance® and have been educating myself on all of the benefits of medical insurance for our dogs.
