Pet Insurance

Pet insurance pays, partly or in total, for veterinary treatment of the insured person’s ill or injured pet. Some policies will pay out when the pet dies, or if it is lost or stolen.

As veterinary medicine is increasingly employing expensive medical techniques and drugs, and owners have higher expectations for their pet’s health care and standard of living than previously, the market for pet insurance has increased.

Pet insurance companies are beginning to offer the pet owner more of an ability to customize their coverage by allowing them to choose their own level of deductible or co-insurance. This allows the pet owner to control their monthly premium and choose the level of coverage that suits them the best.

Some of the differences in insurance coverage are:

  • Whether congenital and hereditary conditions (like hip dysplasia, heart defects, eye cataracts or diabetes) are covered;
  • How the reimbursement is calculated (based on the actual vet bill, a benefit schedule or usual and customary rates);
  • Whether the deductible is on a per-incident or an annual basis;
  • Whether there are any limits or caps applied (per incident, per year, age or over the pet’s lifetime); and
  • Whether there is an annual contract that determines anything diagnosed in the previous year of coverage is considered pre-existing the next year.

Martha and her husband Craig live in Frankfort and raise German Shorthair Pointers for hunting and field trials, as well as bobwhite quail, pheasants, dwarf turkeys and a few chickens along with a stray cat named Smoke, whom has “adopted” them and moved into the garage alongside some of the birds! They also took in four Manx kittens, which had to be bottle-fed and have been named Peaches, Big Mac, Jasper and Precious. Each pet is dearly loved and spoiled as much as possible!

Terri

Terri has been with us since November 2004! She was born in Southern Indiana was raised on a dairy farm around many different animals; cattle, calves, goats, sheep, chickens, cats, dogs, rabbits, horses and pigs.

She moved to rural Shelby County with her husband and two sons. She currently has several pets; goats, ducks, geese, cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, chicken and even an iguana!

She has been with us since November 2004.

In her spare time, Terri enjoys spending time with her family, pets, friends, the great outdoors and her faith. She is also blessed with two granddaughters.

Sherri

Sherri started in the veterinary field in 1987. She has worked in multiple doctor practices and specialty/emergency hospitals where she has supervised and trained many technicians and assisted a variety of veterinary specialists.

Sherri has specialty training in surgery/anesthesia, trauma & critical care, reproduction & genetics, ultrasound & radiology, internal medicine and physical therapy.
Sherri has shown, bred and raised multiple champion Akitas and Norfolk Terriers. She has volunteered as a 4-H equine drill team coach for several years. She also enjoyed doing reining with her quarter horse “Charm” during that time.

She has three wonderful daughters and five grandchildren that she enjoys taking trips with. She currently has a cat named “Yoda” that was left by a neighbor when they moved out.
Sherri’s favorite patient of all time was an Alaskan Malamute named Nikko that was very aggressive and was diagnosed with cancer. He needed IV treatment and bloodwork often. Somehow, they both found that bond and trust. Nikko eventually allowed her to handle and treat him with no assistance from others. Sherri couldn’t wait for him to come in talking to her at each visit. He gained 18 more months of life and a best friend.

One of the things that she loves the most about working in the veterinary field is building bonds with every client and their pets. She wants each client to feel that she is not only dedicated to their pet’s well-being, but to each client’s needs as well!
