Make it part of your household budget. You save money for your own emergencies, why not for your pet? Even if you can contribute just $10 per week, it can help pay a hefty vet bill. A great way to help you save money for this type of emergency is to open a miscellaneous savings account with SeaComm – which enables you to save up for just about anything, while earning interest on your money!



Get pet insurance. In order to prevent a financial setback from an unexpected vet bill, you should consider pet insurance. With vet and animal hospital bills ranging from just $20 to well over $8,000 – it’s not worth the risk to go without the proper insurance. With a Benefits Plus® checking account, you’ll receive an automatic 5% premium discount when you enroll in Nationwide Pet insurance. You will even save up to 15% when you enroll multiple pets!
