Our dog Andy is like our child, he has gone with us on all of our vacations, traveled with us, and goes everywhere we us. He has been by our side through sickness and many other life experiences. Andy has always been pretty healthy, but one day I was outside talking to our neighbor and they had purchased pet insurance (from Petplan) for their dog. It made me think, what if something were to happen to Andy and so the next day I called the Petplan and purchased a policy and I am so glad I did because Andy lost the use of his back legs due to Intervertebral disc disease and needed an operation. Petplan’s covered most of the operation and their representative was there through all the stress at the veterinary hospital and was very understanding and kind to us. Andy deserved to have a chance to live, although there were some who suggested otherwise, thanks to Petplan he will live.
