Pet insurance in North Dakota featured image

Pets have a great life in the Peace Garden State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in North Dakota

Whether you want to see the ‘World’s Largest Buffalo’, take in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, or visit Fargo only to discover that none of Fargo was filmed in Fargo, the state of North Dakota has a huge amount to offer you. And, more importantly, its sprawling landscapes and pet-friendly vibe mean it has a great deal to offer your Labrador or Burmese as well.

Park life

One of the most sparsely populated states in the country, North Dakota is green green green. Needless to say, this makes it a pretty great place to let a canine companion run free. You can open your boot and watch them explore Minot’s Dakota Bark Park, or Dickinson Dog Park, or Hazen Bark Park. Or, if a leashed walk in some breath-taking scenery is what the doctor ordered for your Yorkshire Terrier, trails like Maah Daah Hey, Harmon Lake and Hankinson Hills are ideal.

“A near-drowning means you might need to pay up to $9,000”

Bear in mind when you’re near water a) that your dog should be using the opportunity to stay regularly hydrated, and b) that unpredictable bodies of water for an excited dog are a real risk. If your pet suffers any of the complications involved in a near-drowning, you might need to pay up to $9,000. And bear bears in mind as well; there are black bears in North Dakota, and an encounter with one of those would obviously necessitate a swift and urgent trip to the vet. Not having insurance when you arrive? Just another pain to add to the list.

City slickers

If you’re heading into the city itself, Scheels in Grand Forks is one of the various places that lets your furry friend roam around on a leash. Here they sell outdoor products and stuff for dogs. Almost next door is Tractor Supply Co., which is similarly welcoming to dogs who want to help their owners pick out some all-important farming or gardening tools. And if what you’re after is less gardening, more chilling, Kelly Inn in Minot has a hot tub, a pool, and a room where your pet will be safe and welcome.

That’s how all pets should feel: safe and welcome. While you can’t guarantee that your dog won’t have to go the vet for a procedure at some point, pet insurance makes the whole process that bit easier – putting your mind at rest and letting you focus on your loved one.

North Dakota isn’t famous for its pets, and most cities tell you that you cannot have more than three in your house, but pet insurance in North Dakota is right at the cheap end of the spectrum, costing less than half than it would in New York. You’ll be grateful for this should your dog get into any scrapes or take any tumbles.

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.

I collapsed when I heard that our Siberian Husky Alan had cancer of the blood vessel cells. Without insurance it would have cost $900 to have the tumour removed, and another five lots of $800 for the chemotherapy after the removal was successful. Do you think I can afford $4,900? Thank the Lord my aunt convinced me to take out insurance. I barely had to pay anything.

We didn’t expect our little Norwegian Forest Cat Winkle to get chylothorax. And we had no idea how expensive it would be. She had to stay in hospital for 48 hours. But that’s what the insurance is there for. Our reimbursement rate was 95% so we got back the vast majority of the $1,200 we would have had to pay. Winkle’s back to normal, and we’re no worse off.
