Why We Here at IndulgeYourPet Choose to Write About Pet Illnesses.
Having spent years in the world of finance and insurance, one thing that we here at IndulgeYourPet learned is that often times when an individual finds themselves struggling, it’s because of some kind of medical emergency that caused them to incur a massive amount of debt!
Medical debt does account for an enormous amount of personal bankruptcies within the United States (1), the debt that goes largely unreported is the amount that is accumulated while caring for our 4 legged family members.
After all, pet health care costs can surpass human medical bills. (2)
This is why…
We here at IndulgeYourPet choose to write articles focusing on some of the more common aliments that certain dogs and cats can develop to try to shed some light on what it might cost to help treat these conditions.
Now are we veterinarians?
Nope! Nor do we have any medical experience or veterinarian training at all.
All we are is a bunch of folks who really care about animals and hate to see others have to put themselves in a position where they may have to choose whether or not they’ll be able to afford to pay for the care that their “furry” family member may need.
This is why…
You’ll often see us refer to our article about Pet Insurance Companies throughout the following articles so that if you do have any animals that might still qualify for coverage, you’ll at least consider the idea of purchasing such a policy if it looks like one may be a good fit for you.
