Amputation and other unexpected veterinary treatments can be as hard on your pocketbook as they are on your pup. In the unfortunate event that your pet becomes ill or is hurt you will need to take him to your veterinarian.
Your vet is likely a highly skilled expert with access to current medical developments and technology to help your pet be happy and healthy again. This expertise, however comes at a cost. See some examples below, or read what Tripawds members paid for amputation and cancer treatment for their dogs.
Pet health insurance coverage offers pet owners one method of budgeting for unexpected events through monthly payments.
