“The unexpected cost of treatment for a sick or injured pet can come as a big shock and taking out pet insurance can take away some of the anxiety when already dealing with a stressful situation. When pets become part of the family, having insurance help make sure they have the best chance and quality of treatment, which may be unaffordable if consumers have to make a sudden payment.”
