I wish that I had gotten pet health insurance when my dogs were puppies. I also wish that I had gotten the continuing care coverage for my dog before he got to old. My dog loves to eat chocolate, so it has been important to have the insurance for the couple of occasions when he found chocolate and ate it. Having the insurance meant that I didn't hesitate to take him to the vet when that happened and that saved his life at least once. The fact is that I would rather have health coverage for my dogs and the peace of mind knowing that I can provide them with needed health care if the situation arises.
