It is easy to tell ourselves during tight economical times that we cannot afford the monthly pet insurance premium. But when you need it, as our Australian Shepherd with cataracts does right now, you will be glad you found a way to do it. Just as for ourselves, pets' - especially aging pets' medical needs must be addressed. We say we love our animals as family. We must provide for them the best we can, and extending quality of life is the way we can do it. Knowing my our dogs are covered by AKC insurance is peace of mind for us.
