Your Pet Could Be New Work Perk
Nobody knows more than I do how expensive it is to have animals. I have 4 cats and one dog (at this point). It seems like I end up paying more on medical expenses for my pets then I do my kids. Just walking inside the Vets office means I leave spending at LEAST $100 bucks.
In an effort to keep employees happy around 5 thousand companies are now offing workers Pet Insurance. One employee, a nurse in Indiana who has a dog, decided to pay the monthly co-pay of 40 dollars, and it sure came in handy. Her dog fell and ended getting run over by a tractor. The poor thing, who was 2 years old a the time of the accident, underwent an operation to stabilize his spine and one to remove a damaged kidney. Can you Imagine?
Thanks to her pet insurance, they ended up paying most of the 14 thousand dollar medical bill.
Pet Insurance as a Perk? YES!!!!!!
