We highly recommend pet insurance

There is no equivalent of Medicare for pets, thus often treatment costs exceed what an equivalent problem would cost for a human patient. 

Individual packages vary in the type of treatment covered, however, they usually include most accidental and unexpected illnesses.

You need to consider the differences between policies, in particular, the claim excess amount, proportion of treatment costs covered, annual claim limit, age restrictions, pre-existing illness exclusions and policy costs.
