Learn more below and give the team at Vail Valley Animal Hospital in Edwards or Eagle-Vail a call today, or stop by and let's chat.




Just as insurance for you and your family protects you against the unexpected. The same is true for your 4 legged family member. By getting pet insurance you can gain peace of mind knowing that if something does happen, you have the protection your pet needs. While it's difficult to protect your pet from all harm, they still can get sick, have an accident or eat/swallow something toxic. In those types of situations having pet insurance can be invaluable.



Why Get Pet Insurance?

As you are well aware of, pet owners in the Vail Valley and surrounding communities tend to be very active. This means that by default your pets tend to be extremely active as well. This is a great thing! However, it does open your pet up to more risk at times.

With the so many technological advances in animal treatments you now have many options with your veterinarian that not too long ago didn't exist. The advances are great, but lets face it, things can get costly in some situations. Vets today can offer treatments that were unheard of just a few years ago, and having an adequate pet policy for these types of treatments could mean the difference between your pet living or passing on.


But, Pet Insurance is Too Expensive...

FALSE! While there are some plans that can be pricey, overall cost of pet insurance has become incredibly affordable. With many options for deductible and reimbursement amounts, pet parents will be able to find the perfect coverage for their budget. If you live in Vail, Avon, Edwards, Eagle, or Gypsum Colorado we highly recommend calling Dr. Charlie Meynier and discussing what pet insurance options exist.



Advantages of Getting Pet Insurance

The biggest advantage when having pet insurance is obviously the cost saving aspect of it. You save a lot of out-of-pocket money that you would otherwise be responsible for in the event of a big pet procedure. However, the benefits don't just stop there. In addition, you and your pet are able to:


  • You choose your veterinarian - No limitations for in-network or out-of-network providers. Get insurance and choose or stay with your long time vet. Of course if you are looking for a new vet, we (VVAH) would love to meet you and your pet(s)!
  • Does not discriminate against breed or age - Perhaps you feel like your pet is too old or a breed that sees more health despair than others... No need to worry about breed or age. When you have pet insurance the same rates will apply for young active pets compared to older more mature senior pets.
  • Allows for peace of mind and ability to budget health care cost - This peace of mind is huge! Knowing that if and when something bad happens to your pet you are covered. It's simple to setup, very affordable with a variety of plan options to meet any budget, and it protects your pet against countless accidents and diseases your pet may encounter.


January is pet insurance awareness month here at the Vail Valley Animal Hospital. Our goal and mission is to better inform our patients, and the greater vail valley community at large, about all of the wonderful and affordable options to protect you and your pet. So if for any reason you thought this was something out of the question, THINK AGAIN!
