When you go on adventures with your dog everything is fun and exciting. That is when things are going according to plan but sometimes life likes to throw a curve ball at you that can be extremely expensive if you are unprepared. Imagine this, you are taking a stroll through the woods and something catches the attention of your dog. They chase off after the noise with tunnel vision and trip over an unseen hole in the ground and hurt their leg. You immediately rush to make sure that they are ok.
If you happen to have a first aid kit like this one with you then you can try and assist them yourself. If they have a major cut or gash you can use the bandages to help contain the bleeding. You can also find a small branch nearby and use that and the bandages to make a make shift splint. But depending on the situation of the injury they may need the help of a vet.
So you take them to the closest vet and then it sets in that you are about to spend a ton of money to help your loved one. We have all experienced vet bills and know that they can be pricey. What if this accident wipes a good portion of your savings out? Before you worry be prepared ahead of time with having pet insurance. Now I know as well as anyone that dealing with an insurance company can be a hassle. But there is a solution for pet health insurance that doesn’t have to be that way.
Enter Eusoh, a company that is shaking up the old way of pet insurance. It is a peer-to-peer health sharing system where they don’t profit by raising healthcare costs. They don’t put your money into a premium pool like most insurance companies and skim their profits off of it. This allows them to have extremely reasonable pricing for what they offer. The best part is you can use any vet that you are currently using as there is no network.
Keep in mind this is a reimbursement type of plan which means that you will need to pay for your vet services upfront. Then Eusoh will reimburse you up to 80% of what you paid and it’s as simple as taking a picture of your receipt and uploading via their app. This eliminates the red tape that is normally associated with trying to file an insurance claim. I personally think this is a better way to do insurance but don’t take my word for it visit their website here and find out for yourself.
My personal hope is that you will never need to use pet insurance as I want your best friend to be happy and healthy. But life doesn’t always go the way we want it to so it’s good to be prepared just in case.
