Pet Insurance

Do you really need pet insurance? Nowadays, many dog owners are pondering this very question. The good news is due to advancements in treatment and care, our pets are living longer. So exploring health coverage and other ways to minimize your Miniature Schnauzer's pet care costs, is probably a good idea.

First , let's remember to do everything we can (short of playing doctor, of course) to keep our Miniature Schnauzer's healthy:

Keep your Miniature Schnauzer fit & trim - Measure out food portions, so you don't overfeed your Miniature Schnauzer, and work in a daily exercise routine. A brisk walk or a game of fetch should do nicely.

Keep treats to a minimum - Most Miniature Schnauzers have a tendency to gain weight, so don't over indulge your Miniature Schnauzer with too many treats. A good treat for your Miniature Schnauzer, which is also low in calories, is green beans or other fruits and vegetables that are considered safe for dogs! Be sure and use fruits and veggies that are fresh or frozen. Canned foods contain too much salt, sugar and other preservatives!

Add supplements - Adding nutritional supplements like probiotics & enzymes is a good way to help with digestion and boost the immune system of your Miniature Schnauzer. Ask your vet about it!

Keeping your Miniature Schnauzer healthy is the best way to avoid costly vet bills. However, even the healthiest dog will eventually need more care as they age.

Therefore, having dog insurance can provide you with the ease of mind that veterinary care and costs won't dictate your decisions when it comes to the needs of your Miniature Schnauzer.

Important When Considering Pet Insurance

5 things that are taken into consideration which will affect the price of healthcare plans for dogs:

  1. Age does matter: Buying coverage when your Miniature Schnauzer is young, is less costly.
  2. Outdoor lifestyle: If your Miniature Schnauzer is mostly outside, or participates in lots of sporting activities, he's probably at a higher risk for injury.
  3. Licensed Company: Make sure the pet insurance company you decide on, is licensed in your state.
  4. Doctor Choice: Find out if you can choose your own Vet or do you have to select a Vet from one they provide.
  5. Coverage: Find out what's covered in their program: routine care & vet visits, illnesses, emergencies, prescriptions, etc... When the need arises, having pet insurance is a good way to have available the funds necessary when facing those unexpected veterinary costs.
