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 less than ten percent of his clients carry pet insurance. He says it is becoming more important than ever for pet owners to research and take out health insurance on their pets.
Dr. Jordan says having the insurance helps make medical decisions easier as your pet gets older. Pet health insurance sales increased over 23 percent nationally in 2018, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association.
