Owning a dog can be expensive but dog insurance can really help offset veterinarian costs when a dog health problem happens. Most veterinarians recommended dog insurance these days because the rising cost of health care affects not only people but pets, as well. Most dog insurance will cover not only routine checkups and vaccinations with a co-payment, but will really pay for itself in the case of severe injuries or dog health problems. Treatments for diseases can sometimes require frequent trips to the vet and costly medications. Even routine surgeries like spaying and neutering are often covered. Before you pick an dog insurance plan make sure that your vet accepts he plan you are interested in. Most vet's offices will accept a variety of plans and they can even help you decide which plan is best for you and your dog. When you adopt your dog and take him in for his first visit it is a good time to talk to the prospective vet about which plans they carry and recommend.
