The Price Of Pet Insurance
We all love spoiling our pets but some of us have more money to burn on our fluff bums than others.
Vanessa Papas

Take Mariah Carey, for example. She spends over R400 000 per year on grooming her dogs; while Britney Spears spends R360 000 on animal care and thousands on pet sitting. Then there’s Oprah, who’s left R450-million in her trust funds to her dogs in case she dies! For many South Africans, the biggest cost of having a pet is not food or toys, but medical costs. Are you wondering if pet insurance is really worth it? Or, perhaps, you would just like to find out what the fuss about medical cover for your furball is all about.
