Pet insurance may help relieve a pet owner's immediate financial burden of medical or surgical care for his/her dog or cat.
Before selecting a pet insurance provider, you should consider the following:
Coverage - What procedures and services are covered and excluded? Does it include "well visits" or just "sick visits".
Customer service - Will someone answer the phone if I call with an emergency?
Insurance premium - How much are monthly premiums? What is the deductible? Is the deductible per incidence or per year?
