Pet insurance in Wisconsin featured image

Pets have a great life in the Badger State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in Wisconsin

They call it the Badger State. But don’t let that deter you from taking your dog to Wisconsin. There’s plenty of room for all sorts of animal – badger or dog – in this gorgeous fixture of the US.

Splashing around

Wisconsin is not short of water. With most residents living alongside the colossus that is Lake Michigan, the state is a haven for doggies who like to get soggy. Demonstrating a veritable greed for H2O, the Badger State even boasts some damn good beaches with turquoise water for your dog to chase sticks into.

When you’re at the beach – whether it’s Harrington Beach in Belgium, Point Beach State in Two Rivers, or Whitefish Dunes State Park in Sturgeon Bay – please be aware that there are jellyfish and even the odd shark in the salty waters. Keep a close eye on your pup: a jellyfish sting could cost you $1,800 to clear up, and would be a horrible thing for your pet to experience.

Float your pet's boat

While you’re in Wisconsin, you might kick yourself if you didn’t make the most of all that water by booking yourself a boat tour. On the popular Dells Boat Tours you’re given the chance to see Wisconsin Dells, a city in the south which draws in tourists like moths to a flame. For heaven’s sake be careful though; dogs don’t have the self-control that humans do, necessarily, and your Labrador might get excited at the sight of water while in the middle of the tour.

“A near-drowning costs in the region of $9,000 to properly treat”

Keep them on a leash and don’t get distracted just because you’re looking at a particularly beautiful sunset. You do not want to see your pet get into deep water and struggle to find their way out. Near-drowning is a terrifying and expensive ordeal, costing in the region of $9,000 to properly treat at the vet’s.

Hunt for fun

Elsewhere, in Madison, there’s something called Mad for Madson Scavenger Hunt, an Airbnb experience in which you and your dog can roam around Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, in search of clues and treasure. While you’re doing this, however, do be aware that even cars in built-up areas of the city can be travelling at high speeds – don’t let your pooch out of your sight in case they are struck by a car and break their leg, presenting you with a vet bill of $2,000.

And what else is there to do? In Albany, S & B Tubing will give you and your furry friend an unforgettable experience as you float down the Sugar River together in the sun, wearing very little clothing. It takes you almost four hours to float four miles, and by the end of it the two of you will be relaxed, closer than ever, and ready for the next adventure.

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 own a Basset Hound called Errol. One night, for reasons that remain unclear, he contracted Q Fever. Not a nice thing to have; not a cheap thing to treat. He only needed antibiotics, really, but for that the vet still wanted to charge me and my wife $2,800. I’d do anything for Errol but I’m glad we were insured.

You might not know this but the yew pine tree is poisonous to dogs if they ingest it. In the grand scheme of things maybe $650 isn’t all that much, but I’m still extremely glad that my husband and I decided to insure our dachshund Ornie the moment we bought him. Somehow we blamed ourselves a little less.
