A wake-up-call. Our fist puppy, Bandit got sick

10
Out of 10

After many many months of discussing the possibility for our family to become pet owners, we made the decision and adopted a male Morkie. We named him Bandit. Bandit is so cute that we couldn't resist but to LOVE him at first sight. As you can imagine (first time pet owners) he was (still is) the center of attention at our house. Since he was our new "baby" we wanted to make sure he was healthy so we schedule his first vet appointment asap. The appointment went well and our Bandit got his first round of vaccinations during that visit. The staff at the vet clinic discussed all the necessary information in order to make sure we knew how to take care of a puppy; to include pet insurance, Trupanion. To be honest, I looked at my husband and asked, pet what? insurance? why do we need to purchase that for? To make the long story short, I wasnt convinced but decided to enrolled Bandit immediately in the 30 day trial to get some time to do more research. Guess what? the next day, Bandit got sick. We didn't know what was wrong or what to do. I called the vet clinic but they were closed. They recommended for us to take him to the Emergency Services Clinic immediately. After many hours of examination, the vet decided that Bandit needed to spend the night at the clinic and proceed to give me a possible diagnostic and an estimate of the cost for her services. At that time, I understood why having pet insurance coverage is so important. Never in my life felt so good about purchasing
