Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves has signed Senate Bill 2228, which enacts pet insurance regulations in the state, WLBT reports.

The bill is expected to provide pet owners with a legal framework similar to other forms of insurance, which is seen as a positive development by Dr. John Mayfield, a veterinarian at the Animal Medical Center of Hattiesburg.

“I think what this is doing for the pet owner is a good thing because they are going to bring it into that legal framework into what our normal insurance is,”  Mayfield told WLBT.

Mayfield believes that the new regulations will eliminate difficulties that pet owners have experienced with obtaining coverage for certain conditions, such as pre-existing conditions or specific breeds or ages. He also believes that the new pet insurance laws will be beneficial for pet owners, as they will provide them with a clear understanding of the cost of treatment and enable them to get their pets the care they need without financial obstacles.

The regulations are expected to make visits to veterinarians more streamlined and cost-effective for pet owners.
