Persuasive Essay On Pet Insurance

Many pet owners, including myself wonder if they should have pet insurance for their furry friends. Pet insurance can be costly but overall it can save your pet’s life if an emergency occurs. Pet insurance premiums on average cost between 25 to 42 dollars a month. Annually, that would be 300 to 500 dollars a year. That seems like a significant amount of money but a dog could swallow a small toy and end up at the vet and your bill could easily be 1,000 dollars. That one visit would be way more expensive than if you had pet insurance. "Pet insurance doesn 't always make sense, and the purchase depends on a number of factors. Pet owners should do their research on the overall costs and coverage provided by pet insurance providers and consider the age and type of pet, the program deductible and the overall premium costs for the estimated life of the pet versus the anticipated veterinary costs," said Madelyn Flannagan, vice president of agent development, education and research at the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America. Pet insurance is not an investment it is strictly used to help eliminate veterinary costs due to unexpected accidents and illnesses. I have two dogs and for the past year I would say I spent roughly 500 dollars per dog due to veterinary costs. I do not have pet insurance and luckily this past year I did not have any major problems with my dogs. This helped tremendously because if an emergency would have arose I would have not been ready.
