When we decided to get pet insurance on our 2 Weimaraners ages (now) 8 & 10, we had no idea how much we would be using it. Our 10 year old has been tested, re-tested and prescribes medications for cushings disease. This is not something curable, but can be managed through medication and constant moniter with the vet. Needless to say, this insurance has been a money saver. We had already covered various problems with the 8 year old. Thank goodness we took the "long-Term care" that caries over year to year.
