National Pet Day is April 11, and it’s a perfect reason to give your furry friend a few extra treats or some extra head scratches.

Have you ever wondered why we are so attached to our animals? For millennia, humans have lived with cats and dogs, and bred them for specific purposes like hunting, companionship and protection. The result is that cats and dogs aren’t just pets, they are family.

It is easy to tell if you’ve bonded with your pet.

  • Are you always the first one they want to snuggle?
  • Do you receive an exuberant welcome when you return home?
  • Can they relax when they’re around you?
  • Or have you noticed that your pet shares your excitement or comforts you when you’re down?

If you answered “yes,” to any of those questions, way to go! Of course, there are many ways a cat or dog can show their affection – every relationship has its quirks and inside jokes.

But the bond between you and your pet isn’t only about being there for the good times. Just like you would make a bowl of chicken soup for an ill family member, when your pet is sick or injured, they rely on your help recovering.

Unfortunately, providing proper care can be a big hit to your budget. So, you'll want to get a pet insurance policy to help avoid these unexpected costs.

To help find the right pet insurance, here are some points you should look for:

  • Flexibility & Convenience – You want a plan that works best for your household and the ability to pick which licensed veterinarian and specialists your pet visits.
  • Honesty about Coverage – You need to clearly understand what is covered by the plan, as you don't want any future surprises.
  • No Breed Exclusions – Are there any breed exclusions or exclusions for health conditions associated with the breed?
  • Lifetime Guarantee – Check if you can enroll for coverage, with benefits guaranteed to renew each year.
  • Coverage at any age – Make sure to inquire if a pet can be too old for coverage. It is recommended to get a policy as early as possible – because there will likely be fewer pre-existing conditions.
