Your pet insurance policy may allow you to add endorsements or riders to provide additional coverage. A pet cancer rider, for example, provides additional coverage that covers cancer treatments. Without insurance, this can cost thousands of dollars. The average cost of chemotherapy is between $5,000 and $10,000. This does not include any additional costs. Exotic pet endorsements offer healthcare coverage for exotic pets, even if your pet isn’t a cat or dog.
Pet insurance covers certain vet costs that are related to injuries or accidents. There are two main types of pet insurance policies:
- Accident-only policies do not cover injuries that are caused by an accident.
- Insurance policies for accident and illness are the most popular and include coverage for both injuries and other conditions such as cancers or infections.
- Insurance with embedded Wellness policies combine accident/illness coverage with compensation for preventive care such as vaccinations and heart-worm prevention. It can also pay for burial and cremation costs.
- You may also consider additional coverage options
Each pet is unique, but pet insurance policies should provide more coverage than just the cost of the pet. It is also important to determine how much you spend on veterinary care and what your vet charges for emergency treatment. A simple x-ray can cost between $80 and $400. You could be responsible for thousands of dollars in vet bills, not to mention the cost of treatment, clinic visits and medicine.
