Pet Insurance becoming more popular locally

Although most pet owners consider their furry friend as a member of their family, only an estimated two percent of pets nationally are insured.  Dr. Jordan Kobilca from Door County Veterinary Hospital in Sturgeon Bay and the Luxemburg Pet Clinic estimates that between ten and 20 percent of his clients carry pet insurance.  He says it is growing and strongly recommends pet owners do their research and find a policy that best fits their dog or cat.  Having pet insurance can make emotional decisions a lot easier when illness or injuries inflict pets, according to Dr. Jordan. 




Pet health insurance sales increased over 23 percent in 2018, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association.
