Do not choose a pet insurance plan based on cost alone. If you do, you will end up with a pet insurance plan that does not meet your needs.
With auto insurance, you can compare companies largely based on price because most auto insurance companies provide the same type of coverage (e.g. liability insurance, uninsured motorist insurance, etc). The choices for monetary limits are also very similar.
With pet insurance, the medical coverage and monetary limits are as different as night and day. No two pet insurance companies have the same offerings. They vary greatly on what is covered and what the monetary limits are.
Because of the vast differences between pet insurance companies, it is crucial that you do your research to find one that meets your needs and requirements.
