It’s a long, boring, and stressful process, and with a little bit of luck and a little patience, your pet will get insured when you need it.
Here are the key steps to get your own pet insurance policy, and how to find out if you can afford it. 1.
Ask your vet If your pet’s insurance policy is a new policy, they may not know if you have coverage yet.
Check the policy’s information to see if it’s covered.
Some insurers will have an insurance page that you can click to find the latest coverage available.
If your policy does not list your pet in the policy description, you’ll want to check to see whether your veterinarian has an animal-specific policy or if the policy is limited to the breed of pet.
Check for coverage The first step is to go to your vet’s office and make sure they have the right policy.
Many insurance companies offer coverage to pets and other animals as a supplement to their human coverage, or as a pre-existing condition or liability.
If you have pets, make sure your veterinarian can offer you coverage as well.
