Learn about Burnaby Pet Insurance
Just like humans, pets could fall sick and when they do, you need to provide urgent medical care. The cost of surgery could range from $800 to $5,000 and without an appropriate Burnaby pet insurance policy, you may have to spend money out of pocket for other pet-related medical expenses.
However, pet insurance will help to cover the costs of diagnostic tests, illnesses, accidents, surgery, emergency care, hospitalization, and prescription drugs. Some insurers may include additional coverages such as wellness programs which could cover procedures like checkups and vaccinations.
It is recommended that you spend some time to find out about the insurance provider and also the insurance coverage as well as its waiting periods, stipulations, limits, and exclusions. Some policies may have limits on their benefits reimbursements and the limits could be yearly or within the length of the pet’s lifespan. Also, find out the applicable policy as regards the pet’s breed and age.
It is also advisable to take out pet insurance coverage as early as possible. This is because the risk of chronic illnesses increases as the pet age and if the pet is diagnosed with any condition, most insurers will exclude it from the coverage. However, if the coverage is already effective before the pet is diagnosed with the condition, it will still be covered under the policy.
