When it comes to pet insurance, Cam John says he’s learned his lesson and has dropped his insurance provider. “I wish from day one, I put money aside in a private bank account for myself,” said John The B.C. resident first purchased pet insurance when he adopted his dog Marley more than eight years ago, thinking pet insurance would give his four-legged companion the best care. John says he started out paying roughly $50 dollars a month in pet insurance, but year after year his monthly premium climbed. What’s worse, he says, the claims he’s made for Marley were mostly denied. “When you think of pet insurance, you think that they got your back,” said John.
