Our dog, Sandi, is a three year old husky mix. We began a health policy with her because our previous rescue dog had some serious, and expensive, care toward the end of it's life. The company we chose is ASPCA, which was recommended by our veterinarian. The company has a good web site, the return checks after a claim are handled promptly, and we have the no hassle option of having our quarterly payment charged automatically through a credit card. To date, Sandi has had several hundred dollars worth of bills, mostly due to a infection that set in around a deer fly bite on her nose. She needed shots, ointments, and lab work. We are looking forward to a long and healthy life for Sandi, but we feel she is worth the little bit extra to insure that we can afford to take care of her.
