I bought my first dog for $75 on the side of the road and I realized just how much a pet can get a hold on your life. She was instantly my baby in keeping with early 2000’s trends, I carried her around in my purse. My little Daisy has been in my life for 13 years now and naturally we have made plenty of vet visits. Whenever she wound up getting injured or sick I hated having to ask about the cost of procedures before deciding whether or not to move forward with her treatment. Having to pay out of pocket for vet procedures had always been a stress on me. Now I know better and I understand the importance of pet insurance. What I wish I would have known was that I’m also able to get additional financial assistance on top of pet insurance. Let me tell you how.
