Pet Insurance - North Carolina
Serving Wilmington, Shallotte, Lexington, and surrounding communities.
It's nearly impossible to put a price on just how far we are willing to go to protect our family members, and for most pet owners, that includes the furry ones too! Pet ownership enriches our lives immensely, but can also come with financial responsibilities that may become difficult to manage or justify at times. Pet Insurance is a great solution that allows owners to provide wellness healthcare in addition to medical treatment for unexpected surgeries, sickness, and injuries so you can give your pets the attention they desperately need. Whether you have a dog, a cat, exotic animals, or some combination of those three, pet insurance can be tailored to help shield your family from having to make difficult decisions if something unexpected were to happen to your pet.
Sheally Insurance Group truly understands how much pets mean to our family and yours. Contact our agency to secure the most affordable pet insurance policy for your beloved pets today!
What does pet insurance include?
Pet insurance covers certain veterinary costs related to accidents, injuries, and illnesses. The main types of policies for pet insurance are:
- Accident-only policies only cover injuries caused by an accident, such as a pet being hit by a car or the pet accidentally swallowing a poisonous substance.
- Accident and illness policies are the most common and cover both accidents and other illnesses such as cancers and infections.
- Insurance with embedded wellness policies combine accident and illness coverage with compensation for preventive services such as vaccinations, heartworm prevention, and dental care. It may also cover burial and cremation expenses.
Additional Coverage Options to Consider
You may want to add additional coverage called endorsements, or riders, to your pet insurance policy. For example, a pet cancer rider provides more coverage specifically related to cancer treatments, which can be thousands of dollars out of pocket without insurance. Chemotherapy costs an average between $5,000 and $10,000, not counting additional expenses. If you have a pet that is not a cat or a dog, exotic pet endorsements provide healthcare coverage for unique and exotic pets.

How much pet insurance do I need?
Every pet is different but any pet insurance policy should cover more than the cost of the pet. It’s also important to calculate how much you typically spend on veterinary bills and what your vet charges for emergency services. A simple x-ray of a dog can cost anywhere between $80 to $400. On top of the cost of treatments, clinic visits, and medicine, you could responsible for thousand of dollars in vet bills or even more.
