I wasn't so sure I wanted the free trial that was offered by my vet for my puppy on her first visit after picking her up from the breeder. Since it was free and my vet insisted that the company was good and that I should really think about pet insurance as a way to help budget for vet costs, I decided it couldn't hurt to look into it. Sure enough, I wound up needing to make a claim when she got her paw caught up in something on our farm and came back lame and needing some stitches. It was a pretty minor problem but she needed to have an anesthetic to get the stitches, and with bloodwork and hospitalization fees the bill was over $500 dollars. I had to call them to figure out how to make a claim and they were helpful on the phone and the money came pretty quickly in the mail also. I decided that it was probably a good idea to continue to pay monthly for the coverage too, so now my goofy border collie can get into trouble and I don't have to worry as much. I couldn't believe that they were so good about the claim even though I hadn't actually ever paid for anything. I will be telling my friends for sure, and I couldn't thank my vet enough!
