Pet insurance review listings can help you make a better choice of health insurance for your pet. We often use reviews to help us find the best of something. Think of the power of Oprah’s Book Club – when she reviews a book it is almost guaranteed to be a best seller. People listen to reviews. Think of the last time you went to the cinema without having read at least one review of the movie you are going to see. This is the power of word of mouth. Advertising agencies have been cashing in on this for years, but that does not reduce the value of a personal testimonial. When it comes to pet insurance reviews come in two basic forms – the pet owner testimonial and the industry expert.
When a pet owner gives a pet insurance review it is usually in response to personal circumstance. Often that owner’s pet has undergone treatment for illness or accident and the pet insurance has either performed well, or left the owner feeling disillusioned and angry. Either way, the pet owner will create an emotional story detailing their experience with the pet insurance company. Sometimes it is hard to get an objective view of the insurance company from these testimonials which by their very nature are intensely subjective.
Another type of pet insurance review comes from an industry expert – a vet or a pet care specialist. These reviews are often written from the perspective of multiple interactions with the insurance company. Distinctly less emotional these reviews can sometimes seem aloof and dispassionate – concerned more with facts and figures than with real life situations. The benefit of the expert opinion though is the thorough nature of the investigation. From these reviews you will learn about pay out limits, hereditary exclusions and other conditions that can limit the value of a policy.
In the end run checking both the personal and expert reviews will give you a balanced view of the pet insurance company and the policy’s they offer. You can find these reviews on the inter-net and in pet related magazines. You can also ask friends, neighbors and your vet to supply personal reviews to round out the view you will compile from the published reviews. When you are shopping for a policy reading a pet insurance review or several reviews about the policy you are considering will help you to make an informed, educated choice.
