Firstly, apologies for the very cheesy pun in the title. I couldn’t resist!
Moving on …
I am a big believer in pet insurance … despite never having to use. I have insured Marly and Jess since I got them at a cost of £12 a month.
Let’s do the maths:
- Born 28th June 2008 they are now 5 years and almost 7 months
- I got them at 5 months
- 5 years and 2 months = 62 months
- 62 x 12 = £744
Some people may say that is a waste of £744 but in my eyes I have peace of mind. If anything happens I will have no hesitation in approving any treatment and paying an excess on the insurance will be a small cost to pay.
Without the insurance I could find myself facing an impossible decision … And I could see myself begging, borrowing or stealing to cover the costs.
I am aware everyone’s situation is different and if money is no object and plenty of savings are in the bank then this is also peace of mind.
Whether you know you want an insurance or are on the fence and unsure, research is always worthwhile to know what you are really paying for.
Now I am taking the lazy approach and at this point I am going to share with you a researched blog post which covers all the things you should consider when deciding on pet insurance.
This is by Castle Vets in Reading – “Pet Insurance – What it covers and why it is worth considering“. The title sums it up perfectly.
