Why We Recommend Pet Insurance
I believe in preventive maintenance as much as possible. My own dogs are seen by a veterinary chiropractor fairly regularly from the time they are about 9 weeks old, and they are well exercised to avoid the ‘weekend athlete’ injuries. I have been blessed with overall sound and healthy dogs but nevertheless I wouldn’t be without my pet health insurance just in case the worst happens.
Thanks to advances in veterinary science, our pets now receive viable and effective treatments. The estimated annual cost for a medium-sized dog like the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, including health care, is $650 / £387. (This does not include emergency care, advanced procedures, or consultations with specialists.)
The growing interest in pet insurance to help defray these costs is understandable. You can buy a policy covering accidents, illness, and hereditary and chronic conditions for $25 / £16.25 per month. Benefit caps and deductibles vary by company.
Although breeders are now becoming more responsible in improving the overall health of a breed, it is inevitable that you will need to make a number of visits to the vets in your Staffie’s lifetime. Apart from the routine of annual injections and check-ups, there are bound to be unexpected visits, often at weekends or in the middle of the night when costs are significantly higher. This total can run to thousands of dollars (or pounds).
Establishing a healthy record from the very beginning ensures your Staffie qualifies for full insurance coverage and lower premiums.
