Should I get Cat Insurance?
There is a lot to consider when you're thinking of buying cat insurance, including your budget, the age and breed of your cat and whether he or she has any pre-existing or ongoing medical conditions.
While it is crucial to remember that pet insurance does not cover the likes of vaccinations, routine treatments, grooming or housing your pet while you jet off on holiday, we cannot predict what may or may not happen in the future, even if your cat is in perfect health today and largely stays out of trouble.
So considering the potential costs of vet fees, pet insurance could offer peace of mind that should something unexpected happen, those medical expenses won't seem quite as daunting.
How Can I Save Money on Cat Insurance?
Microchipping your cat can be seen by many insurers as a sign of responsible pet ownership and in turn, some will offer lower premiums based on this. Further to this, the information stored on your cat's microchip can make it easier for him or her to be returned to you in the event that they're found wandering a nearby village.
By keeping your cat's vaccinations up to date, you're not only helping your cat out in the long-run by doing your bit to keep certain illnesses at bay; you could also save money on your pet insurance premiums as some insurers will see your pet as at a 'lower risk' for becoming ill.
Once you have a good idea of the cover level you require and the types of policy available, you're ready to start comparing pet insurance products!
