What should I know about pet insurance?
« on: February 18, 2016, 08:28:48 AM »
I'm getting ready to get my first dog, and I need to decide if I should get pet insurance. What kinds of things do you wish you'd known about the process? Are there any companies you'd recommend or warn against? I'd love any tips you can share.

Thanks!

My pet experience is limited -- I have a cat, and he's my first pet other than fish.  I don't have any insurance for him, though.  Preventative vet care isn't expensive.
