Hidden Benefits Gems - PetPlan Insurance

One of Lehigh’s newer voluntary benefits is for the furrier members of our families. 

Did you know that Americans share their homes with about 144 million dogs and cats? That’s a lot of purring and drooly friends, and a lot of veterinarian bills.

Unfortunately, recent studies indicate that a lot of pet owners aren’t taking their animals to the vet.  According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dog vet visits have dropped 21 percent since 2001 and cat visits are down 30 percent. Not surprisingly, emergency vet visits have increased at the same time.
