I say should, because we’ve never actually gotten pet insurance — yet — but we’ve talked about it over the years. Why haven’t we gotten it? Probably because it just hasn’t been top-of-mind or terribly convenient. Now, I don’t have that excuse anymore.
Kroger Personal Finance is making pet health insurance information available in the check-out lanes of more than 2,400 supermarkets operated by Kroger, the nation’s largest grocery store chain. (You may know Kroger stores by its alter ego names, such as Ralphs, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, Smith’s, Dillons, QFC and City Market.)
It’s comforting to know that affordable pet insurance can help pet owners manage their expenses, covering everything from routine costs associated with veterinary expenses like annual check-ups and vaccinations all the way to surgeries, x-rays and hospitalization. And if money’s tight (you know, paying hundreds of dollars to insure your family), the newest product offered by KPF is a great option – an “accident only” policy for $9.95 per month per pet.
