I am the first of my friends and colleagues to get pet insurance. I fund and work with many many rescue groups and dog devotees. Everyone kind of had the opinion that pet insurance was a scam - they all wanted to know my experience. I kept telling them I had nothing to report. My dog was fine.
Well, it finally happened. Daisy got sick quite suddenly and died four days later. The bill was over $3000!
I put in my claim and waited. I really had no idea what to expect. In the meantime they were so nice to me - called me with their condolences - just really amazing personal attention.
I just got my claim decision the other day. They are paying 2/3rds of the cost! Everyone was shocked. I now believe my friends and colleagues secretly thought I was being scammed. So now I'm telling everyone it's true! Pet's Best Insurance is for real. I'm even getting phone calls from people who got word of this event asking who I'm insured with. I plan on posting my experience to Craigslist just to let people know that pet insurance, though new, is real and that all I can recommend is Pets Best.
Nothing will bring back Daisy but at least I know that if I have a sick animal it' ok to focus on getting them well without getting a second shock when the bill comes in.
