The importance of pet insurance

March 6, 2019

A local veterinarian says pet insurance not only mitigates unexpected expenses, but enables the highest quality care for your four-legged family member.

The joy of owning a pet is immeasurable. And when accidents or illnesses happen, the pain is not just hard on you and your pet, but also your wallet. Doctor Kate Lupton of Family Pet Hospital says pet insurance can really come in handy. In addition to coverage of accidents and illnesses, there are policies which can cover vaccinations and even food in some cases.

According to Lupton, the hospital has seen an increase of dogs high on marijuana ever since it's legalization. She says those who partake should lock up the weed because dogs love the smell.
