This episode features a previous guest on the podcast from over 5 years ago when I interviewed Sebastiaan after he and his wife insured their 5 cats. I recently contacted him to followup once again and discovered that they no longer had pet insurance. It wasn't because they thought it wasn't worthwhile, but because they consider themselves to now be self-insured.
One thing I saw over and over in practice was pet owners who were faced with an unexpected large expense to treat a their pet - perhaps even save the pet's life, and they had no idea how they were going to pay for it. So, this episode is more about encouraging pet owners to have a plan to pay for their pet's healthcare. Sebastiaan and I talk about several strategies that may give you some ideas when developing your own plan. Your plan will be unique to you because your financial status, your pet's healthcare needs, etc. aren't the same as other pet owners.
