“A dog is for life, not just for confinement, so it is very important to have the right insurance as soon as you welcome your pet into your family,” said Isabella Von Mesterhazy, head of Petplan Directsaid.
“When shopping, carefully review the veterinary coverage provided by each policy, as not all pet insurance is created equal. This will ensure you get the best possible care for your pet should the need arise.”
