Lately I have seen a few of you with sick dogs/puppies. Got me thinking. Do any of you have pet insurance? Is it worth looking into? Any benefit from having it...is it similar to Human insurance? Cheaper meds? Haven't done any research on this yet, are there a few different companys out there, any that you recommend?
Here's a pretty good discussion including pluses and minuses of it and different companies...
Thanks for that link. Was very helpful
I have insurance for Henry. I thank god I have insurance for Henry. (He has PetPlan's Champion policy.) I pay at time of service and get reimbursed fairly quickly, I think within a few weeks.
Henry got very ill last year and had to be admitted to the emergency vet hospital for 3 days. It cost me almost $1500. Mind you, I would beg, borrow and steal the money, and it was a lot of money to come up with right away, but it helped knowing that I would get most of it back.
I know a few people who put money into a savings account every month in lieu of paying a premium but I'm not disciplined enough to do that, I don't think... :-\
