Do you have an adventurous dog or cat?  It could pay off in a big way for you and your furry friend.  The people at 365PetInsurance.com, a pet insurance reviews site have a special deal for your pet.  More on that in a moment.

Speaking of pet insurance, it got me thinking about the subject.  My first thought is that owning a pet is a very expensive proposition when you think about it.  Dog food seems to be going up every month, the cost of yearly shots, doggy daycare, training, any unexpected trips to the doctor's office, and so many other expenses that just creep up on you as a pet owner.  It kind of makes sense to buy pet insurance to offset some of those expenses doesn't it?

According to a site that sources the North American Pet Insurance Association, only about 2% of North Dakotans have pet insurance.  Yet, nearly all pet owners in the state will more than likely run into unexpected trips to the vet or stays at a pet hospital over the course of their pet's life.

According to PawlicyAdvisory 4 out of 5 pet owners could not afford to pay a $5,000 veterinarian bill without pet insurance.  That means a lot of pet owners are forced into making decisions that could affect their pet's life.  As somebody who is a pet lover and will always own a dog, this has certainly got me into thinking about pet insurance.

365PetInsurance.com has a chance for you to win $1,000 bucks, which could certainly offset some of your pet expenses.  Simply upload a video of your pet here doing something adventurous and out of the ordinary.

The deadline for "America's Most Adventurous Pet" submissions is Friday, February 18, 2022, at 5:00 pm ET.
