Pet Insurance: the Good and the Bad
When Alyson Dutch's yellow Labrador encountered not one but two rattlesnakes this spring, she was glad she had pet insurance.
The dog, named Sullivan, had his first run-in with a rattler occurred in March in a neighbor's avocado grove. Anti-venom serum and other treatment for the bite on his nose cost $1,500. A month later, Sullivan walked into another rattler, this time on a hiking trail. The veterinarian's bill was $925.
