I've had coverage ever since getting our bulldog a couple of years ago. She is like a typical child, running, playing and having to go to the doctor to get a scratch looked at. The coverage gives the comfort of our dog being taken care of and getting reimbursed for the vet expenses. Recently her eye got scratched and had to get several medicines which were costly. The coverage reimbursed for most of the charges and that really helped. It just gives you more peace of mind to know that there is coverage for pets also.
