Pets have a great life in the Cornhusker State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in Nebraska
Nebraska is known as the Cornhusker or Beef State, and we know which nickname most pets would prefer to get their teeth into. But it’s not just a tasty moniker it can offer them; Nebraska is a fine place for any animal to live, with plenty for fur-friendly activities (which equal plenty of reasons to get pet insurance).
There aren’t many people in Nebraska, but boy do they love animals. More than half of all households have a pet, with nearly half home to a dog. It’s no surprise, with the state’s glorious plains providing endless opportunity for adventure and exercise. You could hit the wide open spaces at one of the state parks, such as Platte River or Fort Robinson, or one of the plentiful trails like the Big Papio Trail or Pioneer’s Path.
Obviously, such fun comes with risks for your Labrador or Burmese. Heatstroke can be fatal for pets and the potential vet bill of $5,000 to treat it is a killer too if you don’t have pet insurance. Stumbles can also be painful and expensive; a dislocated knee is not only extremely painful for a dog or cat, but really expensive to treat ($3,000 for a dog, $1,000 for a cat).
Nebraska does have cities, of course, but they’re also great fun for your furry pals. The capital, Lincoln, and the state’s biggest city, Omaha, have many a dog park in which your terrific Terrier or great Goldendoodle can have the time of their lives.
There are plenty of places where you can enjoy a brew while your dog enjoys a chew. Code Beer Company and the White Elm Brewing Company in Lincoln, the Scriptown Brewing Company in Omaha, and the Bolo Beer Co in Valentine, to name but four.
Careful, mind. Alcohol is toxic for dogs and treatment for poisoning can cost you up to $5,000 if they’re not covered.
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.
It’s a real worry when your pet gets sick. But with plenty of reimbursement options available, pet insurance can help cover up to 100% of veterinary costs for new accidents and illnesses – plus much more.
