Jack is my second rescued Pekingese. My first was named Charlie Brown and he was very healthy for most of his life with me (about 11 years). The last year of his life he stopped eating and lost a lot of weight, it toke the vets several blood test, X-ray, and CT scan to determine he had cancer. During these several months the vet bill was run $500.00 - $600.00 a month. After adopting Jack, I decided to get pet insurance for him. I did an internet search and talk with my vets about pet insurance companies and compared plans and rates before deciding to go with ASPCA Health Insurance in October 2009. The biggest deciding fact was the once a year $100.00 deductible, most wanted a deductible every time. Jack has been very healthy for the two years he has been with me. I have only used the insurance three or four time for small problems and once for his yearly checkup. ASCPA Pet Health Insurance reimbursed me 80% for these vet visits. Having the insurance saved me some dollars but it also gives me peace of mind about Jack quality of life.
