I always considered pet insurance after experiencing the medical bills associated with a medical emergency visit to the Vet. However, I didn't purchase any until 6 months after getting my second dog and starting a new job that offered the pet insurance benefit to its employees. I covered both Xavier and Oliver. Wow, what a life saver!! About six months into the coverage, Oliver, my youngest dog had an issue that required me having to visit the emergency vet clinic and being referred to a specialist. It all ending with a whooping bill that could have caused a crippling financial burden on my budget if not for having ASPCA. Thankfully, Oliver has fully recover mainly due to me not having to decide against taking him to receive the treatment. Knowing ASPCA would cover some of the cost allowed me to be free to get him the treatment needed.
