All pets need added protection; however, senior pets are more at risk therefore additional protection in the form of pet insurance is crucial.
Senior pets run a higher risk for complications including arthritis, diabetes, kidney disease and cancer. All of these conditions are treatable under the care of a licensed veterinarian. Pet parents can work with their vet to treat these conditions, and in some situations, reverse the illness.
To help offset the cost of future vet bills, pet owners should consider pet insurance. Pet insurance, especially for senior pets (ages 10 and older), will help reimburse expenses from various illnesses. All pets are at risk, particularly senior pets for the following:
- Broken bones
- Foreign body surgeries
- Tumor removal
- Renal failure
- Corneal ulcers
- Lacerations and burns
- Ear infections
- Allergic reactions
- Urinary tract infections
