Pet Insurance in Texas

Texas MapIf you live in Texas, chances are good that you have a dog, as the state ranks 9th in America for highest percentages of households with at least one Rover in the family. Whether you own a frisky feline or a calm canine, have you considered the benefits of having pet insurance?

You may think that such coverage is not worth the monthly premiums or annual deductibles required, or maybe you have the impression that veterinary costs are decreasing. On the contrary, many Texans are discovering that they can't afford not to have pet insurance, as the average prices for veterinary procedures have increased as technology has advanced, making life-saving care a costly possibility. Sadly, some pet lovers have chosen to have beloved animal companions put to sleep rather than go into debt to cover the expenses of a surgery or other treatment.

Pet insurance can help you avoid having to make that difficult decision without putting you into financial dire straits. If you prefer lower premiums, policies are available that leave routine care in your hands while covering significant percentages of any catastrophic illness or injury that may occur. However, if you prefer greater peace of mind knowing that nearly every possible treatment is covered, a higher-premium plan might be a better option. Some pet insurance companies offer add-ons that can also pay for routine veterinary care such as vaccinations, neutering/spaying, and yearly wellness visits. Be aware that pet insurance policies are not required to cover pre-existing conditions, certain dog breeds (most often impacted are pit bulls, Rottweilers, and chow chows), or elderly pets, so make sure that any plan you select fits the criteria you most need.
