People usually have to review their medical insurance coverage yearly. Pet owners should also think about the health of their furry friends at the same time. Pet insurance is a good investment. Just like human health insurance, you may not need to use it often, but it can be a life saver if/when a serious medical or surgical problem develops.
Pet insurance can not be purchased to cover previously existing conditions; so purchase when your cat is young and keep up the premiums and coverage.
St. Louis Cat Clinic recommends Pet’s Best and VPI. When looking at pet insurance compare the polices offered to see which one fits your needs.
