For caimans, alligators or vipers, we regularly get requests. I disagree, because we do not want to promote the attitude of these animals.

How they came up with the idea of a health insurance for Pets to raise?
The idea has already emerged in the 80s in the UK when Maggie Thatcher abolished the regulation of fees for veterinarians. At the time, the people feared the cost of treatment for your Pets may run out of control.
