Pets are an important part of our lives and we want the best for them, but at what cost?
Vet bills can be tremendous, especially if your pet needs emergency surgery.
In a tough economy, some pet owners have been forced to euthanize an animal for financial reasons instead of seeking treatment.
If you're the type of person who would do anything to save your pet or you continue to visit the vet for accidents, pet insurance might be something you need to look into.
CBS Atlanta.com's Jennifer Banks spoke with Stephen Ebbett, president of ProtectYourBubble.com.
ProtectYourBubble.com is an Atlanta-based company that offers pet insurance and other types of insurance coverage.
Protect Your Bubble offers coverage options for sick visits in addition to wellness care too.
A pet owner can pay monthly or annually for the plan.
Pets sometimes form undesirable behavioral issues like separation anxiety. Their behavioral coverage includes consultations, exams, lab testing and prescription medications to diagnose, treat, or correct behavioral problems.
Ebbett explains that with the insurance plan, you can select any vet you would like to use. You will also be covered while traveling.
