i’m dr cliff and i’m a veterinarian in toronto and on this episode we’re going to talk about the fascinating world of pet insurance. buying pet insurance is kind of a a it’s a personal decision it’s based on emotional and financial factors. To me it boils down to how much of a gambler you are just imagine your pet gets seriously sick or injured and you’re presented with a massive bill can you handle to pay it. The surgeries are complicated technical and expensive and expensive surgeries so think seriously about pet insurance and look for an insurance policy that will cover your pet in the event of an accident and only an emergency laparotomy and gastrotomy will get it out. Pet insurance can cover things like infections toxins heart disease and diabetes cancer, heart disease, diabetes cancer and behavioral therapy and dental cleanings. Policy fees are going to go up and down based on things like the age of your pet and breed breed. No we do not get kickbacks we just get to help you keep your pet healthy and that’s the beauty of pet insurance, says Dr. Marc Lamontagne. If you have a bulldog please get insurance but expect to pay up the wazoo, he says. “Hopefully you didn’t spend all your money buying that little tater tot,” he says as he tries to figure out how to cover his dog’s medical bills.
In the long run your pet gets better quicker and often at a lower overall cost. Get pet insurance and teach your dog to just say no to drugs. financing and budgeting isn’t really my strong suit which is why i even have insurance for my own dogs. “i’m a veterinarian” is the weekly, offbeat look at what’s going on in the lives of Dr. Richard Quest and his dogs. i hope you found it informative and i hope that you will share it with your dogs.
