According to Goodnight, while an increasing number of pet owners are taking a more proactive role to support their pets' overall health and wellness, less than one percent of pets are currently insured due to a lack of awareness of pet insurance or dissatisfaction with current plan options.
The PurinaCare plans offer a variety of monthly premiums and deductible levels to fit most budgets. Both plans provide coverage for illness, injuries and accidents, hospitalization, surgery, prescription medications, and hereditary conditions. The PurinaCare plus Preventive Care plan is designed to encourage the use of routine preventive care by also covering certain customary annual costs of routine vaccinations, flea and heartworm preventative medications, routine annual physical exams and lab tests, and certain other preventive care as outlined in the policy. A complete list of coverage is available on http://www.purinacare.com.
"The advances in veterinary medicine over the past decade, which include the use of CT scans, MRIs and chemotherapy, are truly remarkable," said Goodnight. "Our goal at PurinaCare is to continue to educate pet owners about the newest health advancements, as well as the benefits of insuring their pets, to help them provide their pets with a lifetime of health and happiness."
