Deciding to adopt a pet is a big decision. With the rising cost of veterinary care getting animal health insurance for your pet is a choice that more and more animal owners are making. Out of all of the animal health insurance available, make sure you compare plans to get the best one for your pet. A comprehensive plan that covers all regular examinations, vaccinations and surgery is best. Make sure that it will also cover emergencies like acl surgery for dog or even emergency surgery for accidents. If you already have a veterinarian, check with them to make sure what plans they accept. If you do not already have a vet, make sure that the plan you choose has plenty of choices in your area so that you can find a vet that is a good fit your you and your pet. Ask the vet what types of surgeries they often see pets for and then make sure that the plan that you are considering covers it. For example, some dogs are more susceptible to hip, joint or skin problems, so if your plan will not cover acl surgery for dog joint problems or steroid treatment for dermatitis you may want to consider another plan.
