Healthy Paws Pet Insurance—the #1 customer-rated provider of insurance for dogs and cats, today released the second annual Cost of Pet Health Care report, revealing how much pet parents are truly spending at the vet’s office. The report employs data from roughly 200,000 claims submitted by Healthy Paws pet parents from June 2016 to June 2017, and examines the most common accidents and illnesses for cats and dogs. An in-depth look at the traditional treatments and diagnostics used per condition are included, as well as symptoms and most importantly, their overall associated costs.

“Last year we wanted to focus on veterinary innovation; this year, the report goes further into what pet parents can expect at the vet and what’s covered with pet insurance,” said Rob Jackson, CEO and co-founder of Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. “While most pet parents are willing to do anything to keep pets happy and healthy, they might not realize how helpful pet insurance can be in attaining this goal.”

The Cost of Pet Health Care 2017 report provides detail regarding the top 10 accident and illness claims for both dogs and cats, including the symptoms for each condition, pet parents’ personal stories with specific ailments and the related costs. According to the report, while veterinary science has developed at a rate similar to human medicine, the cost for such high-tech healthcare for pets can be quite a burden. So while pets now have the opportunity to live longer and healthier lives, pet parents may struggle to pay the vet bills, making pet insurance an excellent choice. Furthermore, the report is free to download, so all pet parents and pet lovers can peruse the data and make informed decisions before enrolling in pet insurance.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
