Pet insurance in Wyoming featured image

Pets have a great life in the Equality State but there are many reasons why you should get pet insurance in Wyoming.

One of the best places in the country to be a pet parent, Wyoming looks after its animals. A good example is that because it gets particularly freezing in the winter months, it’s illegal to leave your animal outside in the cold. 

Epic scenery

Boasting state parks and mountain ranges by the handful, Wyoming can take the breath away, just like neighboring Utah. In the west you’ve got the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains, while in the east are the great expanses of the High Plains, once the site of the greatest temperature change in one day (44 to -56 degrees Fahrenheit, incidentally).

For a state where it makes a great deal of sense to have a dog on your long walks into the hills, the facilities for pets are, of course, excellent. But remember, as above, not to let your dog succumb to the cold: frostbite in dogs can cause $1,000 to treat at the vet’s.

“Your pet could get frostbite in the winter months which could set you back by $1,000 if you don't have insurance.”

Grand Teton National Park, Bear River State Park and Bighorn National Forest are just three of the many parks in which your leashed dog can roam around sniffing whatever he or she likes. And, at Morad Park, there is an area in which you can let your pet off the leash to sprint around. Remember while you’re at these parks (or the numerous dog parks the state also has) that your dog needs hydrating constantly, especially if they’re in a state of excitement at seeing other doggos. Dehydration might seem like a mundane concern but it can be serious, as can the bill at the vet’s – you don’t want to have to pay $400 for being lazy. Pack an enormous bottle of water in case – and it's unlikely in Wyoming – the dog park facilities aren’t up to scratch.

Places for pooches

Speaking of scratches, try also to make sure that your dog doesn’t get into any fights with other pooches. You could easily pay $200 trying to sort out a bleeding paw but it could be much, much worse: if your dog is thrown around by a bigger dog and fractures their spine, you could pay literally $10,000 for the surgery. 

Assuming, however, that this is unlikely to be a concern, you’ll have a whale of a time treating your Bichon Frise, Golden Lab or even your Burmese to the fun sights Wyoming has to offer. In Laramie, for example, Hydro Hounds provides a lovely place for your furry friend to swim with other dogs; call up Black Dog Raft Company and book a trip onto Snake River for your friends and your pup; or just have a drink at Black Tooth Brewing Company (bearing in mind that your dog shouldn’t consume any of the beer themselves: alcohol poisoning could come with a price tag of $1,800).

So – with all that on offer…Wyoming? Well, why not!

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.

At Beck Lake Bark Park – in Cody – our Pomeranian Lilian got into a fight with an Irish Wolfhound called Yan. As you can imagine, there was quite the size difference. Yan threw Lilian into the air and actually broke her leg. Long story short, the other owner managed to get away with not paying the vet bill – which was $2,000, incidentally. We were insured, so we were fine. But thinking about it still makes me mad.

Jamal, our big old Scottish Deerhound, was diagnosed with nose cancer on Christmas Eve last year. This is the worst nightmare of anyone who owns a dog – partly because nose cancer can come with a $12,000 price tag. Well, that’s what happened with Jamal. We had a generous accident and illness plan though, so, when it came to it, we were lucky. So was Jamal – he’s 16 next month!
