My wife and I adopted two German Shepherds about three years ago. Never having had dogs previously, we were pretty clueless about the potential for large medical expenses (I’ve had cats my whole life; they don’t get into much trouble while sleeping all day!). Dogs, on the other hand, seem to be a magnet for problems. Before we explored Petshealth Care Plan Insurance, one of our dogs was bitten by the other dog, opening up a huge gaping whole near his hind quarters. Several weeks and thousands of dollars later, our dog was better. If we’d had pet insurance then, we would have save a TON of money.
Since we’ve had insurance from Petshealth, we’ve had to deal with a plethora of “issues” with our dogs, and thankfully, our insurance has been there for us. Frankly, we downgraded to “basic” insurance to cover accidents, injuries, etc., which doesn’t provide as much benefit as the previous plan, but this is more affordable and fits well into our budget.
We urge our friends with pets, particularly dogs, to investigate pet insurance; specifically, Petshealth Care Plan.
