Pet Health Insurance

With the advancements of technology and the cost of medical inflation, veterinary care can be very costly. Illnesses that lead to advanced, prolonged hospitalizations and advanced surgeries easily run into thousands of dollars. Many treatments and diagnostics that are used in human medicine are also commonly used in veterinary medicine. The technology of the ultrasound (and therefore the expense to own it) is not different for a dog or a human. Many clients do not think of veterinary care in the same way they do human medicine, but they should.

Veterinary pet health insurance can be purchased by individual providers to protect against unforeseen, major medical expenses as well as day to day preventative medicine. These companies allow the owner to include what protection they would like to cover and offer additional riders as needed.

The Cooke Veterinary Medical Center does not endorse any one provider; however, we strongly recommend health insurance for all of your pets. Our pets are family and provide us with unconditional love and emotional attachment that make us live longer, healthier lives. We should provide the same for them. Health insurance can be very helpful in allowing us to afford the best care for our pets.
