Should Your Insure Your Pets?
Lifehacker tackles the questions of pet insurance in a column, "Is Pet Insurance Worth It?" Their ultimate answer to that question is essentially this: Maybe. It depends.
"Even if your pet does have a major surgery, say $4,000 once in its lifetime, you will still be breaking even in a best case scenario," Lifehacker says. "Pet insurance is geared more toward people who don't want to set up a separate fund to cover health costs, or who want the peace of mind that comes from insurance."
If you've been wrestling with with this issue lately, read Lifehacker's post. It tells you what insurance will and won't cover; how to go about choosing the right insurance; and, if insurance isn't right for you and your pet, what your other options may be.
