Why Do I Need Pet Insurance?

No one likes to think about their beloved pet getting hurt or sick, but it can happen at any time. Pets are typically curious, active and often quite fearless, so it's difficult to protect them from all dangers all the time. Pets also get sick, just like we do. In fact, every year about 6 million dogs and cats are diagnosed with cancer in the United States.
