The words “Veterinary Noses Wanted” can and do have a very familiar ring to them. It is almost like opening up the phone book to every single animal you can think of and seeing pages have page after page listed under each of the heading “Veterinary Noses”. You wonder if there is a link for “Veterinary Noses Needed” somewhere on the cover page. You can’t find it. You are left wondering who could be selling these policies.
You aren’t alone. There are thousands of people like you looking online and there seems to be no end in site. What can you do? Who can sell these policies? Well, I am going to tell you.
The first place that comes to mind is usually your local veterinarian’s office. Most vets offices have an insurance department but they mostly deal with treatments and not insurance. What they want to do is sell you a policy. The advantage of this is that they are probably going to have something that is very reasonably priced and they won’t have to do any advertising.
Another place that you might consider is “Exotic Animal”. They seem to be a one stop shop for everything exotic. Their web site is easy to navigate and there is an online quote feature. This makes their policy appear very competitive. The only drawback is that they don’t sell insurance.
The next place that comes to mind is “Vetcent”. Vetcent sells all types of insurance including noses, teeth, and other miscellaneous treatments. They have a well laid out site and their quote process is simple. I would encourage caution though because many veterinarians will try to sell you a policy that is really expensive.
If neither of these options work, the last place you want to check is the internet. There are several companies out there that deal in nasal reconstruction with rhinoplasty being one of them. Be careful here because most of them are just trying to take your money.
There are two main areas to consider when choosing a nose job. You need to ask yourself what you are willing to pay and what kind of surgeon you want. This will be different for every patient. You also need to think about your own comfort level. If you are not a hundred percent sure, don’t take the surgery. On the other hand if you are absolutely sure you want to get it done, then go ahead and get it done.
The decision as to which of the three options you want to do is up to you. Just be smart about it. Do your research and make a smart choice. Who knows, it may end up saving your life!
If you are still undecided, the best thing to do is talk to a few people that have had the operation done. Ask around and see how they felt after it was done. Also talk to them about their experience and what they would have done if they had the money and time.
Once you are completely confident that you want the operation, then it is time for you to contact your doctor. Make an appointment for a consultation. During this consultation your doctor will want to know what it is that is causing your discomfort. They will also want to know what you can afford to pay so they do not overcharge you.
During the consult, if you have any doubts, discuss them with your doctor. Remember, no one wants to get something like this and then not have the ability to have it. You have worked too hard to not take the best care of yourself. Your pet is depending on you. Make sure you do everything you can today.
When you have talked to the doctor, make an appointment for your surgery. There will be a local anesthetic so you can have it ready in advance. This will help with any anxiety you may have. Your surgeon will want to test the anesthetic before he places your cat’s nasal cavities under. He will do this with the aid of a tube that runs from the anesthesia room. Then your procedure will begin immediately and you will see results immediately.
