Does Your Pet Need Dental Insurance?




Does Your Pet Need Dental Insurance?

Every pet parent worries about the “big stuff” that can affect our pets, like a major health problem or knee injuries, but did you know that dental disease is far more common.  Pet insurance covers those accidents and illnesses, but many plans now include pet dental services.

And here’s the truth about the tooth: 85% of all pets have signs of periodontal disease by the time they’re 3 years old – and that’s not the only thing that can wreak havoc on your pet’s pearly whites! Injuries like tooth fractures are common, too (particularly if your dog is fond of chewing). Removing teeth cracked or loose teeth can be costly, which is why having pet insurance that can help pay for unexpected, non-routine dental treatments is a great idea.
