Next time you start a new job, don't be surprised if your employer offers insurance for Fido and Fifi.
According to Veterinary Pet Insurance, the largest pet insurance co., their corporate accounts are skyrocketing and nearly 15 percent of their business is now large employers. Companies like Del Monte, Home Depot, Sprint and Walt Disney are making pet insurance part of their employment package. Probably not a bad thing, since pet owners spent $9.8 billion on vet care in 2007!
It's about time the rest of the world realizes what we pets already know - a family member with fur is just as important as one without!
