Part 1 Part 2
Our expert guest on the July 14th show was Ian Henry, Regional Director for Trupanion Pet Insurance. As the level of veterinary care continues to increase, pet insurance is a possible solution for owners who are concerned about financially being unable to afford their pets care. Is it worth the cost though? An article from the August 2011 Consumer Reports issue concluded that for routine veterinary care pet insurance was not recommended. Ian Henry reminded us that pet insurance is not a savings account, but instead a way to manage risk and prepare for unexpected future medical problems.
