Pet insurance is a policy that pays veterinary costs if one's pet becomes ill or is injured in an accident. Like Health Insurance for a human, these policies decrease the likelihood that an owner is hit with a big expense that may be the result of treating pets with drugs, medical devices and other expensive medical techniques.

  • General wellness: vaccinations, eye-exams, teeth cleaning
