In 2019, pet owners spent an average of $29.3 billion on veterinary care and products. That’s a huge jump from the prior year and it’s expected to rise when the numbers come in from 2020 due to a big increase in pet adoptions during the pandemic.
There’s no doubt that people love their pets and there’s no doubt that they want the best for them when it comes to medical care.
However, medical care can get expensive so to offset some of those costs, many pet owners turn to dedicating a savings account for their pet or purchasing pet insurance.
Most pet parents would prefer pet insurance that is easy to understand without high premiums and hassle-free but does such a thing exist?
We think so — and it’s called Lemonade.

If looking at pet insurance makes your head spin, don’t fret. Lemonade’s pet policies are simple to understand and they’re built by a team of pet experts.
You can choose as little or as much coverage you want with their accident and illness coverage that not only covers diagnostic testing such as X-rays and blood tests to outpatient procedures, surgery, prescription medications and certain injections but also allergies, cancer treatment.
There is also a Preventative and Wellness option that includes yearly checkups, vaccines, lab work such as heartworm tests and if you want to go above and beyond for coverage for your pet, there’s an Extended Accident and Illness package. This will give you reimbursement for things that you might not be prepared for such as physical therapy, acupuncture, and hydrotherapy, that can help your pet through a recovery process such as a torn cruciate ligament.
