Cancer care for pets can be very expensive. You don't want to be unable to afford pet cancer treatment, which can cost $6,000 or more. To make sure you're able to get your animal the necessary care, consider buying pet insurance before your dog or cat gets sick. You'll need to already be covered by pet insurance if you want it to pay for cancer treatment, as policies exclude coverage for pre-existing conditions.
