Both of my pugs have had problems over the years. The breed tends to have a lot of issues, but these guys are rescues with an unknown past up until I adopted/rescued them. Having pet insurance has made it easier to take care of their needs, which will only increase as they get older. The oldest pug has skin issues, as well as arthritis and stomach problems. The younger one has been pretty health in the past year, but accidents do happen. I can rest assured that if something goes wrong, I can submit my claims and get a good chunk of the money back.
