Pet Savings Account or Pet Health Insurance For Your Pet? 

As a pet parent, you never want to think about the possibility of your best friend getting sick. Unfortunately,  illnesses and accidents happen, so in order to make sure you can take care of your pet, you need to be financially prepared. 

To help you prepare for medical emergencies, annual visits and necessary treatments, there are a few ways for you to set up your finances. For your dog or cat you can:

Let’s discuss your options with a pet savings account, pet health insurance plan or a combination of both. 

The Pros of Having a Pet Savings Account

Opening a dedicated pet savings account is a great way to ensure that you’ll always have access to the necessary funds to cover your pet’s medical treatments. 

With a pet savings account you can:

  • Put money away on your own schedule and as often as you’d like
  • Gain interest and rewards just for saving up for your pet 
  • Pay directly from your account for any treatments your pet may need  
  • Build financial security for your pet’s daily needs and medical expenses

Additionally, your pet savings account can be the place where you save up for anything pet-related such as: 

  • Food
  • Treats
  • Toys
  • Training programs
  • Boarding
  • Wellness Care
  • Medication & Vaccinations
  • Grooming and more

Owning a pet requires a large financial investment, so a savings account can help you put money aside and budget for the necessary expenses. 

Plus, a pet savings account gives you the ability to be in charge of your finances. You get to choose how much you contribute and how often. 

This can be a great choice for pet parents who are on top of their pet’s budget and want to set up recurring deposits to make sure there is always enough money put aside for their pet. 

Our team at Fursure is creating a better way for pet parents to be financially savvy when it comes to the wellbeing of their dogs or cats. With our free pet savings account, you’ll be able to save for your pet and get rewarded for when you spend. 

It’s never been easier to financially care for your best friend. 


The Pros of Pet Insurance 

When it comes to preparing for the future and protecting your pet, there is also the option of purchasing a pet insurance policy. 

Pet insurance works in a very similar way to human health insurance. Here’s the process:

  • You’ll find and purchase the best pet insurance policy for your pet and budget
  • Bring your pet to the veterinarian for any care they need
  • Pay for the treatment during your visit
  • Submit a claim to your insurance provider for treatments covered
  • Get reimbursed

You will pay your monthly deductible and if you need to bring your pet into the veterinarian, your treatments will be covered based on your provider and the plan you choose. 

Pet insurance is truly beneficial for pet parents as it gives you peace of mind knowing that your pet will be protected in the case of catastrophic emergencies, accidents or unexpected illnesses. You should never have to choose between taking care of your pet and your ability to afford veterinary treatment. 

So, why should you sign your pet up for a pet insurance policy? Here are the pros of purchasing a plan:

  • You’ll be covered for expensive medical treatments and bills 
  • Protection in the event of an accident or emergency that you could not anticipate
  • Peace of mind knowing you can take your pet to the veterinarian and afford the visit
  • Getting them covered when they’re young can help you afford the cost of care as they age

Finding a pet insurance policy requires a lot of time, effort and research. It can take hours of scrolling the Internet in order to read through every provider’s policy and coverage details in order for you to make a final decision.

Pet Savings Account & Pet Insurance Plan

As you can see, both a pet savings account and pet insurance plan are valuable ways to save and budget for your pet’s medical expenses. 

So, which one should you choose for your dog or cat?

We recommend a combination of both a pet savings account and pet insurance plan.

With your pet insurance plan, you’ll be able to insure your dog or cat and know that their medical bills will most likely be covered by your provider. Yet, because pet insurance usually does not cover wellness treatments, dental and pre-existing conditions, you’ll still need a way to pay for these extra treatments. That can be done with your pet savings account. 

Additionally, since your pet insurance plan requires that you pay a monthly deductible, you can use your dedicated pet savings account to set aside money each month or as often as you’d like to make sure that you can always afford to pay for your plan.  

Plus, with our pet savings account from Fursure, you’ll earn interest and rewards simply by saving up for your pet. 

You deserve to be rewarded for taking care of your best friend and being the best pet parent any dog or cat could ask for. 

We’re here to help, so if you have any questions about pet savings or pet insurance, contact our Fursure team, today!
