Pet Insurance in Arizona
Finding the Right Plan
The Grand Canyon State is a great place to own a pet!
There are plenty of outdoor activities to indulge in with your four-legged friend including hikes in the mountains and long Summer days spent jumping in and out of the pool.
But with all of the sun and fun activities it’s inevitable that at some point your pet will need veterinary care.
As a matter of fact, one in three pets require emergency care every year and every six seconds a pet owner is faced with a vet bill over $3,000.

The right plan will pay up to 90% for unfortunate health issues your pet may encounter. Much like home or auto insurance you hope you don’t need to use it, but if you do need to file a claim it can be a financial life saver.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost of pet insurance depends on 2 key factors: your pet and your zip code. Pet insurance companies rate the cost on how likely your pet is to suffer from a hereditary issue (like hip dysplasia) and the cost of treatment where you live.
Good news for you is that there are a lot of low cost pet insurance options in Arizona. Here is the average cost for the three levels of pet insurance coverage in AZ.
