We have a 2 year old Maltese with dental problems even as a pup. It's been a constant problem. When she was a puppy not all her baby teeth fell out, so they had to be surgically extracted. Almost a year and half later similar problem, this time she had a tooth abcess, again surgery to take care of it.....Thank God for pet insurance! Easy claim paperwork as well as timely payments received. GoPetPlan has been a great insurance to have when we needed them. Strongly recommended if anyone needs Pet Insurance.
