Working at a veterinary hospital, I see all of the expensive accidents and illnesses that can befall our four legged family members. I knew I needed insurance so I would be able to cover anything that might happen. Mikey is my 17 mo old orange kitten. He is a happy, playful little guy that suddenly became deathly ill. X-rays showed a foreign body and he was rushed into surgery. The doctor pulled out hair band after hair band... I didn't even know he liked them! I was so worried, but I knew he would get the very best care because the insurance would cover anything the doctor needed to do. It's 10 days later and he's doing great. I'm a lifelong petplan member after this $850 accident only cost me mhy $50 deductable.
