Any pet parent knows how expensive a visit to the veterinarian can be. Thankfully, you can get help for your pet’s medical care just like when you go to the doctor. Much like your own health insurance, pet insurance can soften the financial blow of an emergency visit.
But we wanted to know, is pet insurance worth it? To find out, we got quotes for cats and different breeds of dogs from five popular pet insurance providers.
On average, pet insurance for dogs costs around $40 per month, while pet insurance for cats lands around $20. The exact cost depends on your provider, where you live, and your pet’s breed, age, and health. And like human insurance, pet insurance providers have different levels of coverage.

- Consider your budget
- Consider your pet
- Consider your lifestyle
