I like this insurance because it helped us to make quick decisions when our dogs were sick without having to worry about the amount of money we were spending. My dog BamBam was given just 2 weeks to live due to his kidney problems unless we were able to be extremely aggressive with fluid treatments, etc. We were able to say "yes" right away knowing that the insurance would cover the first $1500 for this incident. It has been 15 months now and BamBam is still doing fantastic. The insurance does only cover the first $1500 of each incident and if the pet is not considered to be "cured" within 6 months, the insurance will never again cover this incident. If BamBam has a kidney problem in the future, we basically are on our own. We don't like this part of it, because this is not how REAL insurance works. But, when the incident first occured it allowed us to say YES to treatment without giving it a second though. I will likely get this insurance on my future pets as well.
