One never can expect the unexpected. I have three young cockapoos, one of which suddenly became prone to ear infections and quickly required a decision on essential and expensive surgery. After much research and stress in making the decision to complete the surgery, it sure was nice to know I had ASPCA insurance. The surgery was successful and the claim payment was received within a few weeks. In a stressful situation it sure was nice to know I had one saving grace, ASPCA!
