If you’re looking for local vets and you’re not sure if pet insurance is something you should consider, give East Valley Animal Hospital a call.

The idea of pet insurance surfaced in the United States in 1982. Similar to some human health insurance plans, pet insurance typically requires full payment for services and then submission of invoices for reimbursement. Depending upon the type of insurance, reimbursement might be partial or full.

As with anything, it’s always a good idea to do your research on the various plans out there. There are a variety of pet insurance options available. Do some checking and create a list of what’s most important to you when it comes to your pet’s health. As always, our staff would happy to provide any insight to help you.

Once you find a couple of plans that match your most important concerns, give the providers a call. There is nothing wrong with contacting a providing company to get all the plan details, including the fine print.

There’s no question pet care can add up, especially if your pet has a chronic illness or requires surgery of some sort. But if you have pet insurance, whether it’s partial reimbursement or full, it can help ease what might otherwise be a stressful situation.

In all cases, if you’re interested in learning more about a particular veterinarian on our staff or the services that we provide, give us a call.
