Is your furry friend protected? Many people don’t think they need pet insurance until life strikes. Northlake Animal Hospital is happy to offer you our comprehensive wellness plans (client wants these two words to link to the wellness plans page) which are an excellent option for preventative care. However, if your pet needs emergency care or extensive treatments, insurance will be one of the most effective ways to ensure that your pet’s care will never be delayed because of finances. Our team is ready to provide valuable knowledge about the insurance marketplace and explain why pet insurance is a worthwhile investment.
Pets need insurance for the same reasons humans need insurance – you simply can’t plan for the unexpected. Accidents and diseases can happen at the most inopportune time and facing a hefty medical bill can be daunting. We’ve seen many sad cases in which pets were denied the care they need because the procedures were too expensive. With pet insurance, your pet will be taken care of no matter what happens.
There are many options for insurance companies, Northlake Animal Hospital is proud to accept two of our preferred providers:
Trupanion has grown to become one of the leading pet insurance providers in the country. Not only do they offer excellent benefits, but this company also allows you to customize your plan by choosing your deductible and some plans even provide 100% coverage for unexpected veterinary bills with no deductible.
Another benefit of Trupaninon is that they offer ‘direct pay’ to clinics to simplify the billing process, this means that when your pet receives treatment, you would only be responsible for the deductible and co-insurance the same day. This way your pet can receive the care they need and you would only be responsible for a small payment on the day of the treatment.
ASPCA is one of our preferred providers because of their wide range of coverage options and their commitment to getting pets the care they need. This company offers the most coverage out of any other pet insurer while keeping monthly premiums at affordable prices.

Emergencies don’t have a schedule, they just happen. Waiting to get insurance can expose you and your pet to a difficult situation. The sooner your pet is covered, the better. Another reason why you should consider getting pet insurance soon is that many providers have a waiting period if your pet has pre-existing or congenital conditions.
Our team at Northlake Animal Hospital is equipped with the knowledge and tools to guide you through the pet insurance process. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us and a friendly member of our staff will walk you through every step of the way!
