I rescued my little chihuahua-mix pup Darwin from a shelter. Figuring he was a mutt and he would be without many of the problems a purebred dog has, I almost didn't get pet insurance. I can't thank PetPlan enough. It turns out that my dog, Darwin, suffers from horrible allergies. From a flareup he recently had, he chewed off the pad on the bottom of his paw while I was away from the house for a few hours. If it was not for all the fees covered for his allergies, I would not have been able to keep him. He has brought our family such joy and is so loved as a very important member of the family.
