Pets have a great life in the Constitution State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in Connecticut.
Connecticut, otherwise known as the Constitution State due its early history, sits next to the Long Island Sound and New York. The entire Southern boundary of Connecticut is coastal, featuring shimmering beaches like Silver Sands State Park and even a seaport museum in Mystic which is dog-friendly. The rest of Connecticut’s rural landscape is brimming with lakes, rivers, forests, and waterfalls, making it a truly beautiful place to explore.
The cost of living in Connecticut is high and housing is more expensive than other states, meaning that the cost of pet insurance is above average. Households here can pay at least $1,500 a year in vet bills for routine check-ups and jabs, without emergency pet care and unexpected illnesses. So, pet insurance with accident and illness coverage, plus a wellness plan on top, should have you covered for all scenarios – and save you money.

Connecticut has eight counties which are home to many charming towns and communities, plus 21 cities including Hartford, Stamford, New Haven, and Bridgeport. These larger cities have a high cost of living and pet insurance premiums may increase to take into consideration a higher chance of pollution-related illnesses and road accidents. The good news is that they have many pet-friendly hotels and restaurants for your pooch to stay in, plus dog parks galore for them to let off some steam.
If you’d rather camp out under the stars with your pet companion (breeds like the Australian Shepherd love the outdoors), it’s worth remembering that you’ll be living amongst the local wildlife. Black bears, coyotes, bobcats, and snakes are found in Connecticut, so be aware when wandering into wooded areas. Pet insurance could save you up to $8,000 if your pet suffers from a snake bite or bobcat attack. Another thing to note about the nature here is that winter months are very cold and full of snow. Many pets should be kept indoors during this time.
The pet laws of Connecticut are thorough. All dogs must be licensed and vaccinated against rabies, wearing proof of both on their collar. Dogs should be on a leash when in public and if you’re taking your pets with you on the road, they are not allowed to be transported in the back of a truck.
Why get pet insurance at all?
At Petted, we sincerely believe that pet insurance is a must for all pet parents, whether you live in New York, North Carolina or Nebraska. It doesn’t matter if you’re a city- or country-dweller, if you have a Bull Mastiff or a Burmese, your beloved pet is at risk from injury, illness and inherited conditions – and these things can cost a lot of money to fix.
If you don’t have a very large savings account then you run the risk of either getting into a ton of debt (we’re talking tens of thousands of dollars in some cases) or – and we hate to think about this – not being able to pay for your pet’s treatment and having to either give them up or, tragically, have them euthanized.
So, for the sake of a few dollars a month, please buy yourself some peace of mind and your pet a healthier, more secure future. To find the best pet insurance policy for where you live, click here. We'll fetch you the perfect quotes in less than a minute.
