Insurance Options

At Southport Veterinary Center, we urge our clients to consider health insurance for their pets. Veterinary medicine offers many advanced treatment options to help care for your dogs and cats in case of an accident, illness, or aging. Insurance benefits can assist significantly in covering the costs of these treatments.

There are several companies offering pet health insurance. To help you assess the different services they offer, we made a cost/benefit comparison found.

Quotes may differ for different breeds and different ages, so to get an insurance quote for your animals, please go to their websites. You may also find the insurance companies offer introductory offers or special discounts.

Preparing for Loss

The sad fact is most pets don't live as long as we do. When you love your pets, you must also be prepared to lose them. It's not easy to prepare for the loss. Here at Southport Veterinary Center, we strive to make this decision as easy as it can be. Preparing for pet loss begins the moment you realize that the time has come to turn your thoughts toward how and when you want to say goodbye.

Planning can help lessen the anxiety or any possible regrets you could have when the time comes. To help you make these decisions in the privacy of your own home, we offer a list of different options and costs for you to consider.
