After having many dogs over the years, and living in dread of the financial havoc that an unexpected broken leg, entire bag irresistible chocolate chips, hidden piece of glass in the sand, or amazingly tasty athletic sock could cause on my tight budget, I decided that THIS TIME I was going to get health insurance on my adopted greyhound Lola. Very, very good decision. It has been less than a year, but in that time we have dealt with a 3 emergencies. I am so thankful that I had the foresight to insure my precious little girl. The claims forms are easy and quick to fill out, and usually within two weeks I had a check for the full amount of the vet bills in the mail.
