The reason to carry pet insurance may vary between owners, but one local veterinarian says the financial aspect is always an important one. Dr. Jordan Kobilca from Door County Veterinary Hospital in Sturgeon Bay says insurance can make decisions easier when choosing between medical options available for your dog or cat.
Dr. Jordan estimates that nearly 20 percent of his clients have some type of pet insurance compared to only two percent nationally. He recommends that pet owners do their research and homework in deciding the right coverage for their furry friend. Pet health insurance has increased over twenty percent last year, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association.
