Pet health insurance?

After having Soloman for a little under a year, and paying all the vet bills that go along with having a puppy I started looking at pet insurance. Can anyone here suggest a good comp to look at? As far as cost, coverage and out of pocket exp. I hate feelling like if something bad were to happen to him how would I be able to pay for it. He is so much a part of my life now.

Wow I didn't even know that existed. What has helped me a lot has been the Banfield Hospital health care plans. All vet visits are free, all shots included, screening of all health organs, spaying/neutering included, 1 xray included, etc.....I hate to go to the vet and pay the $40 fee and they tell me that my pup is ok and to not do anything for the mean time unless certain conditions arise. I too would like to know about pet insurance.
