Thinking about struggling families or people in need, many of us have a preconceived idea of who those people are.
For some, it’s easier to assume those in need are separate from their communities and quite different from their own families. However, after spending more than 35 years as a veterinarian and two years on the Pets In Need of Greater Cincinnati board of directors, I’ve learned those assumptions are often incorrect.

As a veterinarian for 35 years, I’ve learned that almost every pet suffers a severe injury or illness in their lifetime, and few people have hundreds or thousands it might take to cover the cost. Pet insurance is one of the best investments a pet owner can make because it means never having to deny optimal care.
