Pet insurance options at Oxford MS animal hospital

At Bottletree Animal Hospital, we know how much your pet means to you. They’re a member of the family and deserve the best quality care. Just like your human family is covered by health

insurance, your furry family can benefit from it too. Pet Insurance covers the significant costs of emergencies or major medical procedures so that you don’t ever have to make crucial pet health decisions based off your budget. At our Oxford veterinarian clinic, we strongly recommend purchasing a pet insurance plan for your pet, particularly while they’re still young, before they develop any pre-existing conditions that could go uncovered.

  • Review the plan’s cost and reimbursement policy to make sure it suits your needs
  • Learn what is and is not covered in the plan
  • Keep in mind that most insurance plans do not cover pre-existing, hereditary, congenital, or breeding-related conditions.
  • Talk to your veterinarian about your pet’s health and get an idea about what common problems could affect them
