Ever taken your Goldendoodle in for one of those routine vet checkups that turns into X-rays…and a ginormous bill?
Whether he’s scarfing down a chocolate bar or eating your neighbor’s poisonous foxglove, your bestie’s health can be scarily expensive.
Now you can sign up for Figo, a Chicago-based pet insurance business that’ll pick up the slack when the next dog-aster strikes.
On Figo’s surprisingly sleek site--Obamacare, take note--you’ll determine which plan you need. (On average, annual plans are $550 for dogs and $300 for cats.) All three levels offered include vet visits, cancer screenings, surgeries and other common yet pricey issues.
Sign up, and you’ll also have access to Figo’s cloud storage for keeping all your pet’s medical files in one place.
And the freebie perk? You’ll get an animal identification tag and a GPS collar attachment, so if Rover ever decides to take off for the afternoon, you can track him down in a snap.
