Pet, Flood, and Others

What You Need to Know

If you are a pet owner, you know how much your furry friends mean to you. They are more than just animals, they are part of your family. You want to protect them from any harm and provide them with the best care possible. But what if a natural disaster strikes and your home is flooded? How will you cope with the loss of your belongings and the potential health risks for your pets?

Floods are one of the most common and costly natural disasters in the United States. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), floods cause more than $8 billion in damages every year. Floods can happen anywhere, anytime, and without warning. They can be caused by heavy rain, snowmelt, storm surges, or overflowing rivers and lakes. Floods can affect anyone, regardless of where they live or how high their property is.

Floods can pose serious threats to your pets’ well-being. They can expose them to contaminated water, debris, mold, bacteria, parasites, and diseases. They can also cause injuries, stress, trauma, and even death. Some of the common health problems that pets can face after a flood are:

– Skin infections and irritations
– Ear infections and mites
– Eye infections and ulcers
– Respiratory infections and pneumonia
– Gastrointestinal problems and diarrhea
– Leptospirosis and other bacterial infections
– Heartworm and other parasitic infections
– Rabies and other viral infections

To prevent these problems, you need to have a plan for your pets in case of a flood. You need to have a pet emergency kit that includes food, water, medications, first aid supplies, vaccination records, identification tags, microchip information, carrier or leash, toys, and bedding. You also need to have a safe place to take your pets if you need to evacuate your home. You should contact your local animal shelter, veterinarian, or pet-friendly hotel to find out if they can accommodate your pets during a disaster.

But having a plan and a kit is not enough. You also need to have pet insurance and flood insurance to cover the costs of any damages or injuries that your pets may suffer during a flood. Pet insurance can help you pay for veterinary bills, medications, surgeries, diagnostics, and other treatments that your pets may need after a flood. Flood insurance can help you pay for repairing or replacing your home and belongings that may be damaged or destroyed by floodwaters.

Pet insurance and flood insurance are not the same as homeowners insurance or renters insurance. Homeowners insurance and renters insurance typically do not cover flood damage or pet-related expenses. You need to purchase pet insurance and flood insurance separately from your regular insurance policy. You can buy pet insurance from various companies that specialize in animal health care. You can buy flood insurance from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is administered by FEMA.

The cost of pet insurance and flood insurance depends on several factors, such as the type of coverage, the deductible, the limit, the location, the age and breed of your pet, and the risk of flooding in your area. You should compare different plans and options to find the best one for your budget and needs. You should also review your policy regularly and update it as needed.

Pet insurance and flood insurance are not luxuries, they are necessities. They can save you from financial hardship and emotional distress in the event of a flood. They can also save your pets’ lives and health. If you love your pets and value your home, you should invest in pet insurance and flood insurance today.

I am a new client to Voyage Insurance Group and was taken care of by Sandra. I have to say she was extremely efficient, patient and clearly spoken. Something that's very rare these days. I was treated respectfully, and received a fair price. I know because she did a lot of research to find me the best price possible and helped me save over my previous policy. I highly recommend this insurance company and Sandra as the person to call.
