As beloved family members our pets deserve the very best medical care. But costs for treating a pet's illness or injury can quickly skyrocket to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. These costs force many pet parents to incur significant debt, refuse treatment or make the heartbreaking choice to euthanize their pet. Economic euthanasia occurs when a pet parent can't afford life saving or life sustaining treatments for their furry friend. Pet insurance is a safety net that makes sure you never have to make such difficult financial decisions.
