Pet Insurance in Oregon
If you’re looking for pet insurance in Oregon you’ve come to the right place!
We know your pet is part of the family. They love you unconditionally and would do anything for you. So when your four-legged friend needs expensive veterinary care are you prepared to spend thousands of dollars if necessary?
Well, the best thing about pet health insurance is the peace of mind it provides. Most plans pay a percentage of your actual vet bills (usually 80-90%), so if you’re faced with a big vet bill, you can make the right decision without worrying about money.
Which Pet Insurance is the Best?
The good news for you is that there are over 20 pet insurance companies in America, so there is plenty of choice!
The bad news, like most pet products and services, there are some excellent companies and some not-so-excellent companies.
To help make your research easier, we put together a comprehensive list of the best pet insurance companies to help narrow your search and find the perfect plan for your furry family member.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost of pet insurance depends on two 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 canine hip dysplasia, and the cost of treatment where you live.
Pet insurance companies rate plans based on your pet’s breed, age and zip code. Here are some samples of prices across the state for a three year-old mixed breed dog.
- Portland, OR – $55/mo.
- Salem, OR – $46/mo.
- Eugene, OR – $51/mo.
- Gresham, OR – $55/mo.
- Hillsboro, OR – $55/mo.

Real Life Story
There is a famous story about a Great Dane in Portland. A three year-old Great Dane was in such bad shape that his parents took him to a Portland, Oregon emergency animal hospital. X-rays showed a foreign material in the dog’s stomach that required surgery.
After the two hour operation the vet surgeons pulled out 43 ½ socks. Clearly this family likes colorful socks of all shapes and sizes. The good news is the Dane made full recovery. The bad news is the family is short about 22 pairs of socks and I’m sure the vet bill was in the thousands. Hopefully they had pet insurance!
