Do you have pets at home? Most probably yes! However, do you also have a pet insurance for them? For you, when do you think is the best time for you to have a pet insurance?
The experience of Betsy Macfarland may give you some lessons. She always had pets at home, but all of them don’t have pet insurance.
A black-and-brown brindled puppy came to her life. Berkley is going to be big and energetic dog. When he turned 1-year-old, he tore his ligament.
That’s when she realized that her dog is also expensive. He needed a knee surgery that would cost $2,000.
That’s the time when McFarland decided to have a pet insurance. Will you still wait for your pet to get sick or be injured just to realize the importance of the insurance?
Buying Dog Insurance was a gamble ………..
After Berkley had the insurance, it was used to treat his allergies, broken tooth, and recently the Addison’s disease. MacFarland also realized that the cost of her premiums becomes worthy and lesser compared to the medical bills she supposed to pay if she didn’t avail the insurance.
Because she didn’t have any problems in paying her bills, she became more focused on Berkley and his recovery. Did you learn something from this story? Share this on Facebook!

Buying insurance for Berkley was a gamble that paid off. McFarland is now considering insurance for her four cats. Because they’re relatively young and healthy and don’t go outdoors, she’s not sure insurance is necessary for them. At the same time, she knows that if one of her cats develops a chronic illness now, any insurance she buys after the fact is unlikely to cover vet bills related to the pre-existing condition. As in all things insurance-related, only time will tell what is the right decision.
