We're looking into pet insurance for our 4 1/2 month old yellow lab and I was wondering if anyone had some information or insight they could share about which company to go with. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Hi, you might have more responses if you post this under Lab Chat. Also do a search--there have been several discussions about it.
I know that my vet recommends VPI, but we don't have insurance, so I can't give you any advice.

Oona has VPI. We got it after her 3rd UTI when she was a year old. If we had had it before the insurance would have paid for itself with what we shelled out for those treatments. I like it because I don't hesitate to take her in for a lump or an injury. This year she has broken a tooth on two different occasions and VPI has reimbursed us for 2/3rds of the bill. Believe me they lost money on us this year.
