Pet Owners from California to Mississippi Paying Dearly for Pets' Medical

Care

BREA, Calif., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- As the economy squeezes consumer's discretionary income, many pet owners are recalculating their household budgets. The average pet owner typically budgets for pet food and grooming. Some may remember to include routine veterinary expenses such as preventive health checks and vaccinations. However, most assume that their pet's youth or history of good health will equal few if any non-routine medical expenses. The average pet owner may be surprised.

Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI), the nation's oldest and largest provider of pet health insurance, recently analyzed its claims data to find the average amount policyholders spent state by state on non-routine veterinary care in 2007. While multiple claims totaling thousands of dollars are not uncommon for pet owners across the country, California's $500 per pet topped the list as the highest average amount spent on non-routine care in 2007. The median amount was a hefty $335 per pet in South Dakota, and even in Mississippi, the state in which pet owners spent the least on medical expenses, the average for non-routine expenses exceeded $200 per pet.
