I have had two German Shepherd dogs recently and both were insured with VIP Major Medical. My last boy, Jackson, had a year of terrible problems before we had to euthanize him. We would have lost him a year earlier if he had not been insured. Our newest boy, Charlie, had a life threatening intestinal problem and needed surgery. We would not have been able to afford the expensive treatments both boys received had we not had VIP's major medical. We would have been forced to make horrible choices between their lives and what we could afford, in retirement, to pay. Thank you, VPI, for being there for us in our toughest times.
