Pet Insurance in South Carolina

Veterinary medicine has grown in leaps and bounds. Procedures are available now that would have been impossible years ago, making it possible for Rover and Fluffy to live much longer, healthier lives with their human companions.

Unfortunately, these surgeries and other treatments are not free. As one would expect, the more extensive the care, the higher the veterinary bill. Cancer, which in the past would have been a death sentence for many dogs and cats, is highly treatable and very expensive. For example, the surgery needed to treat canine liver cancer averages more than $8500; in other words, in some places it can be considerably more. Even something as seemingly simple as a feline tooth extraction can cost nearly $1,000.

In South Carolina, many companies offer pet insurance to help defray veterinary costs. These policies are similar to those used to care for pet owners in that they typically have monthly premiums that vary according to the amount of coverage purchased, copayments, annual deductibles, and often take into account whether a service is provided in- or out-of-network. However, pet insurance policies do differ from human health care in important ways. First, pet insurance plans are allowed to exclude any pre-existing conditions they choose, so customers need to make sure that any policy selected will actually cover the pets in their home. Also, pet insurance companies are allowed to establish limits for annual and lifetime payouts. Those shopping for pet insurance should compare several policies across multiple companies to find the one that best meets their needs at the price they can best afford.

From perky Pekingese pups to cute kittens, pets in South Carolina can be better cared for with the help of pet insurance plans.
