You Really Need Pet Insurance!

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) #562: You really need pet insurance. But what company to choose? Kent Kruse, retired pet insurance expert and veterinarian, talks about why more people do not have pet insurance and how to go about protecting yourself by choosing a company with no annual or lifetime limits, no hereditary exclusions, and the lowest premium for the highest value; Lori Wiese, founder of Downtown Dog Rescue, talks about the Pet Resource Center on Skid Row, a collective initiative that is a public-private partnership between Downtown Dog Rescue, Inner City Law Center and the City of Los Angeles, to address the homelessness crisis and keep animal intake and euthanasia numbers down. Sara Dolinsky talks about the “wonder technology” of Thermowave, a laser that uses deep energy and heat to address multiple “inflammatory conditions” in dogs and cats.
