Insurance for Pets

Almost every family has an insurance policy, maybe life insurance, insurance on property or other things. Among the list of things that can be insured, there is one more add on to the list in the recent years. The add on being pet insurance which is in fact a new concept even though it was first used  in the year 1982 to Lassie, which was a renowned canine star of the TV and the Veterinary Pet Insurance also known as VPI has grown ever science. It has become popular in the recent times which com4es close to the heels of the new development s in the field of veterinary sciences and also the availability of various complex instruments and devices for the diagnosis and the treatment of the pets. The usage of these sophisticated instruments was confined only for human health and treatment until made accessible to the veterinarians. The usage of these devices has made animal healthcare more efficient and also there is a peak increase in the veterinary bills. It is surprising that few veterinary procedures cost more than 5000 USD.

Even though getting a veterinary pet insurance policy seems to be a unnecessary expense for many of the pet owners  it is found that more than 25 billion USD was spent by the Americans on pet healthcare in the year 2006 alone and it is gradually increasing according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.  The average veterinary pet insurance costs for a dog per month will be roughly around 340 USD. Getting an insurance cover for the pet does not mean that all the medical expenses are taken care of by the insurance as one still has to pay for the deductibles.
