5 Tips When Choosing Pet Insurance

Pet Scoop - 5  tips when choosing pet insurance in Denver
Just like you and the rest of the family, your pet is likely to eventually get sick and require medical attention. In order to avoid situations where your dog does not get the treatment it needs, you should opt for pet insurance. You might balk at the added expense but when you love your pet and it is clearly a part of the family’s fabric, you should just do it and avoid a heartbreaking and traumatic experience of seeing your dog fade away.

When you get a pet insuranceyou are basically ensuring that your pet is covered in cases of sickness and accidents for life. You might be surprised at how much medical (and dental) procedures actually cost, but with an insurance policy, it will all be covered. This includes regular check-ups that can cost about $250 for dogs, and procedures much more expensive than this.

What should you look out for when choosing a pet insurance to buy? Here are 5 tips to ensure that you end up with as comprehensive a policy as possible, but one that is still affordable.
 
1. Sign Up While Your Dog Is Young

This tip does not just go for human health insurance, and in pet insurance, you can definitely end up saving quite a bit of money just by buying coverage as early as possible. Another advantage of this is, of course, that your dog is still very healthy and without any pre-existing conditions that can drive your premium up.

  1. Do Your Research

If you find an offer that seems too good to be true, then you should definitely dig deeper and do your research. Look at various providers and compare what they offer. Another tip is to look online for reviews. Lastly, you want an insurance provider that is clearly pro-pet and cover as much as possible.  

  1. Decide on the Coverage

A reason for the variety in price is the fact that various insurance policies will differ in terms of what they offer. For example, some might include emergency care or surgeries and even regular check-ups and preventive tests. These will definitely cost you more, but if your pet is also pre-disposed to certain health conditions, it might be completely worthwhile in the end.

  1. Look at the Fine Print

The most important thing to do when signing any contract or signing up for a service is to understand the terms and conditions fully. The “Fine Print” is infamous for tricking many people into either paying more or accepting much less than what they expect. This is why choosing a pet-oriented insurance company is important, because you know they will most likely prioritize your pet than just maximize profit. If you are still unclear about the terms, call your insurance agent and request a clarification of their policies.

  1. Ask Your Veterinarian

You might not realize it, but your veterinarian is a great resource in looking for a great pet insurance. They would know which ones are accredited in their clinic, as well as which ones will have more coverage. So if you want to get great input on the plan or the insurance provider, you should definitely ask around. You might also be able to get a hold of good deals through your vet. At any rate, they should have sufficient information on this matter.

Having pet insurance is a must to provide it with long-term care, even if your dog will most likely not get sick in the coming years. Insurance policies and costs of pet care can be enormous in the future, so making the investment now might actually be the best strategy and the best act of love for your four-legged family.

The Zika Virus: Are Humans At Risk From Pets?

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to some of the newer viruses were hearing about and how they could be linked to our pets. A perfect example is the Zika virus, first discovered in a primate from a jungle in Africa way back in the 1940’s. Even though this was almost eighty years ago now, new rumors about the spread of this disease are hitting headlines today.

First of all, Zika is spread primarily by mosquitos, but can also be transmitted from an infected pregnant woman to her unborn fetus, through sexual contact or from blood transfusions. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), there is no evidence to suggest that humans can contract the virus from casual contact with animals unless that came from an infected mosquito of course.

People are more likely to contract an illness, disease or infection from coming into contact with a deceased animal than they have any type of problem from petting a domesticated animal. While more research is needed on the spread and effects of something like the Zika virus, there’s simply no evidence that pets or other animals have been affected.

Zika Case Counts

Again, according to the CDC, not only have there been no reported illnesses in animals found in the United States, those that do enter America are subject to a quarantine period to ensure they are not infected. Of those humans in the USA who have been exposed to the Zika virus here in America, those cases were all confined to the state of Florida.

Of those cases found in other parts of our country, all of those examples were travel-related. In other words, those exposed to the virus were not infected here in the United States, but brought the illness with them from somewhere else. Florida seems to be at a higher rate of exposure due to cases find in nearby Puerto Rico.

Animals That Are At Risk

While pets and other domesticated animals aren’t at risk, some believe those that first contracted the virus, monkeys or other primates could be problematic for carrying or infecting others with Zika. But again, the CDC reminds us that:

Zika Blog Post 2
 
●     Monkeys and apes are held indoors when they’re being quarantined where the risk of exposure to mosquitoes is extremely low.

●     If a primate was exposed or entered into a quarantine with an active form of the Zika virus, infection is not possible through sexual contact (since they’re caged) or spreadable without mosquitos being present.

●     Antibodies are developed for those infected with Zika within 14 days of exposure and would be free of the virus at the end of the quarantine period.

Don’t give into the hype and fall for rumors when it comes to the spread of the Zika virus - remember the panic that was associated with the outbreak of AIDS? As you can see after reading these facts from the CDC, there’s little threat to you or your four-legged friends when it comes to the transmission of Zika.

6 Reasons to Choose a Pet Sitter

As a pet owner, you will realize that it becomes very hard to go away, especially when you are going somewhere you can’t take a pet with you.

However, you don’t need to worry about your pet as you can hire a professional sitter – a professional who will take care of your pets while you’re away.

Professional pet sitters offer different services that range everywhere from taking your pet for a walk to staying overnight in your home to make sure everything is flowing smoothly.

There are, therefore, several reasons why you should pick a professional sitter to help you take care of your pet whenever you are away.

1. They allow your pet to live in their normal condition

Since a pet sitter will come to your home, your pet will be able to do everything they are used to doing.  Since many pets don’t adapt to new surroundings, this can be a great option for pets that tend to stress out easily.

2. They dedicate their time

As opposed to having a friend or family member taking care of your pet, a professional will pay close attention to your pet when they are visiting.  Oftentimes, these professionals will spend 15 to 30 minutes interacting with your pet and writing up a small report when they are done.  While there isn’t anything wrong with a family member or friend taking care of your pet, most of the time, they will just come and go, making sure the food and water is fresh.

3. They are professionals

Most pet sitters have been in the business for quite a while and probably have seen it all when it comes to situations.  This helps you relax and enjoy your trip as you are assured that your pet is getting the best care from a trained person who will know whenever your pet has a problem.  So if your pet were to get sick or even get into something, your sitter should know what to do.

4. Professional pet sitters are insured

Since the sitter stays at your house taking care of your pet when you are away, most of them have an insurance policy that covers you in case anything happens to your house or your pet when you are away.   Before hiring any pet sitter, always make sure they are bonded and insured.

5. Pet sitters will also look over your house

Though pet sitters provide their services purely for your pet, they will also check on your house since they are visiting, and this is like another layer of security.  Many pet sitters will be more than happy to get the mail, water some plants and do a check around the house. Keep in mind, however, that some may charge an additional fee for these services.

6. Administering medical care

In case your pet requires some medication or special food, this shouldn’t deter you from getting a pet sitter.  In fact, many are used to administering medication and performing other medical duties.   Regardless of what your pet needs, your pet sitter will be able to accommodate you.
