Pets have a great life in the Sunflower State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in Kansas.
Kansas always looks on the bright side of life thanks to its multitude of sunflowers. It’s nicknamed the Sunflower State for that reason and these sunflower fields can be found amongst acres of pastures and forest, making Kansas an ideal state for nature lovers and furry friends who love to explore.
There are many dog-friendly hiking routes like George Latham Trail, and parks which welcome all sizes of hound (from Chihuahuas to German Shepherds) such as Leawoof Dog Park and Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. In Bonner Springs, your dog is welcome to enjoy jousting demonstrations and music performances at the Renaissance Festival. Or, if you’d prefer a quieter day out with your pooch, the Pet Ranch in Olathe has 13 acres of land to enjoy off the leash.
Although Kansas may seem like the perfect state for owning multiple pets, its laws limit each household to four domestic pets including cats, dogs, and small mammals such as ferrets. Other Kansas pet laws to consider are mandatory licenses for dogs and cats plus an up-to-date rabies vaccination for all domestic pets. You can take advantage of discounted rabies shots if your pet insurance includes a comprehensive wellness plan. This should only cost around $15-$20 a month.
Another big thing to consider about pet parenthood in Kansas is the high proportion of tornadoes and severe weather, earning the area its ‘Tornado Alley’ reputation. It’s important to take extra precautions when expecting a storm such as having an emergency pet supply of food, meds, and a crate. Taking out pet insurance could also give you peace of mind, should your pet become harmed because of the bad weather.
Despite its frequent tornadoes, Kansas is also home to several large cities, with Topeka being the capital and Wichita being the largest. These city areas may see higher premiums for insurance as pollution-related illness and traffic accidents and are more likely. When carbon monoxide poisoning could cost around $500 to treat and traumatic injuries such as a broken leg could leave you short of $3,000, insurance for city pets is still a wise decision.
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.
