Need suggestions for pet insurance?

Hello friends,
I have decided that I want to get insurance for my four babies. I don't really know where to start though, in finding the right coverage, company, and all that. I'm not exactly broke, but if something happened to one of my animals that would cost thousands of dollars...we'd end up out on our behinds because I wouldn't be able to pay rent afterwards. I'm kind of paycheck to paycheck right now, it's the first time I'm out on my own. I'd choose my animals over my townhouse, that I'm completely sure of. I really don't want to have to choose though, and I'm a very paranoid person in general. Bella and I were playing fetch out in front where there's no fence, earlier today. She took a misstep where the curb is a corner, bent her leg, and smacked her face on it. She screamed for a good 30 seconds, I started crying and checking her leg for pain. There was none, and she was still running on it, so I think it hurt her chin. It just got me thinking, it's time for insurance. I need a comany with good coverage, decent rates, and one that will cover Bella, and my three cats. One of which is getting up there in age. Any suggestions? How has your insurance helped you out in the past??

If you keep up your credit, you can always apply for Care Credit if/when needed. I just did that with one of my dogs that needed emergency surgery.
