I used to think pet insurance is a waste of money. When we spent thousands of dollars on our last dog, I decided to give pet insurance a try. I did my research and found Petplan. I basically just needed illness or accident coverage and that's exactly what Petplan offers. The plan is reasonable. I actually hope that I would never have to file a claim. I would much rather that I 'wasted' money on insurance than having to go through an illness/accident for my dog. But if my dog did get sick, at least we won't have to worry about the bills. It was unfortunate that we had to file a claim just a few months after we got our new dog. Our dog is fine now and thanks to Petplan, we didn't empty our pocket! The claim process is very simple. I really didn't know if we were to get money back until the big fat check came in mail. I was very impressed and happy. I was surprised on how easy it was. I am still hoping that we'd 'waste' money on insurance and that we don't file again because it would mean my dog stays healthy. But it doesn't hurt to have insurance just in case.
