Pet Insurance – Medical Minute


Did you know one weekend trip to the emergency vet clinic could cost you thousands and thousands of dollars?

Wellness Plans

At Noah’s Ark Animal Clinic, we believe in the power of the human-animal bond and we want to do everything we can to keep your pet healthy and safe. We recommend our wellness plans to cover all of your pet’s wellness care. But what if an emergency happens?

Veterinary medications can cost pet owners hundreds per month, and surgeries can cost thousands. The average ER vet bill last year was over $2,000 and it’s not uncommon for some bills to reach 10,000, $15,000.

If your dog happens to tear their ACL for instance, and needs surgery at a specialist, 5 to $6,000 is going to be the average bill. With pet insurance, you’re going to only pay 10% of that. It never hurts to be prepared. We want to do everything we can to take care of our babies so we don’t get put in a bad position with them.

Pet Insurance Coverage 

“According to a recent survey by the American Pet Products Association, less than 2% of pets are covered by pet insurance. So, when unexpected accidents and illnesses happen, they do not have a financial safety net. Instead, they must depend on credit cards, loans, or borrow money from friends or family when faced with unexpected veterinary costs, or worse.

Like other types of insurance, pet insurance works by transferring the economic risk of having to pay for all of your pet’s medical expenses in exchange for paying a premium. Pet insurance should be purchased to transfer the risk of unexpected and unanticipated medical expenses that could be very expensive.”

Sign your pet up for a WellPlan at Noah’s Ark Animal Clinic and get pet insurance. You won’t regret it.
