We got Max from a shelter as a 3 month old puppy. We didn't know his backgroud but we knew we had to get some pet insurance. I've had dogs before when I was growing up and never would consider such a thing. But as a adult, I am a true believer that pet insurance is the way to go. When we brought Max home from the shelter from day one we he was going to be a big problem because he had parvo. After we got him well from that terrible disease, I started looking around for some insurance. It took me a couple of weeks to compare, but I truly believe I made the right choice. Max recently was hit by a car and we had to rush him to the emergency hospital. We were just praying that he would make it and I told the doctor to just get him well. We had pet insurance in place so we were not sure if it was going to be there for us. So after Max was released. We filed our claim, submitted the proper documentation and VIOLA a check came in the mail. I was absolutely thrilled. I have told several people that Petplan is on the one. At this time we are very happy with Petplan and I would recommend it to anyone who has a pet that they care about.
