After having 2 cocker spaniels with no insurance and thousand of dollars later, I learned my lesson with the new puppy Sadie. We had her for a month and she ate everything she could. After 2 monthes they found she had a very sensitive stomach. With a pile of vet bills, we only had to pay a small part and the insurance paid the rest. What peace of mind we have taking her to the vet now that we are insured.
