Pets have a great life in the Sooner State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in Oklahoma.
They call it the Sooner State and, well, the sooner you take your pet to Oklahoma, the better. You’ll find a state that loves its pets and knows how to show them a good time.
Like many states in the US, Oklahoma has a remarkably diverse topography – the kind of variety ideal for an energetic pooch. Over 12 million acres of Oklahoma is forest, and it is easy to find a host of hiking trail recommendations at places like Beavers Bend State Park, Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, or Bluff Creek Park. Generally you need to keep your dog on a leash in these areas but this is no bad thing: you can keep an eye on them and try to stop them sniffing some of the potentially dangerous Oklahoma wildlife, like mountain lions, bison or black bears. Though they’re likely not to start any fights with predators, you should be keeping an eye on what your dog sniffs and licks; poison ivy may not be as harmful to canines as it is to humans, but it can still present a hefty vet bill (in the region of $850) if it gets into your pup’s system.
Although its residents are sure to be used to it by now, Oklahoma’s wildly changing climate could be a potential risk for your dog. There are a good deal of thunderstorms in the state and, unlike house-proud cats, there tends to be a pretty good chance that your German Shepherd or Mastiff will be outside at any given time of day – meaning they could be in harm’s way when the extreme weather makes a sudden appearance. Needless to say, you want to avoid having to pay the $1,500 it could cost to treat a severe burn from a bolt of lightning, or the whopping $8,500 it might cost to treat a heart attack. You can’t control the weather but you can control whether or not your pet is insured.
“Weather conditions can become severe in Oklahoma - it could cost more than $1,500 if your pet is struck by lightning”
If, instead of a hike or a rainy walk, you’d rather take in some culture, the Admiral Twin Drive-In in Tulsa is a great place to take your furry companion – provided they stay on a leash. There you can watch the latest Star Wars or Bond film with the whole family and your pooch, or maybe just your pooch if you want some more concentrated alone time. Be mindful, however, that where there are drive-ins there are vehicles; don’t let your pet slip out of your hands and run under the wheels of a car. Treating the complications of a collision with a vehicle – broken bones, pulmonary damage, abdominal trauma – can cost a pet parent thousands of dollars. Don’t let it happen to you.
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.
