    • Yes, Biggie costs $60 per month and he is insured for everything - he is small and a pedigree and I know due to breeding he will have generic illnesses which will cost dearly ...

      I had two lovely King Charles Caveliers and they had dodgy hearts, wonky legs , hips and loads more and it cost me $200+ per month on medications at the end so long term cheaper

    • There was a news report on pet insurance that advised not to buy it.  Coverage has a deductable and may not be for what will be needed for your pet.

      On the other hand, if you think you will have costly care in the future, it might be a safety net.  I would read the small print and decide what is best for my budget.

    • I’ve never carried it before but might look into it.  Is it really worth it?

    • I strongly suggest to have your animal chipped.  If you think of what would you feel if they are ever lost?  Tux was lost since Aug 08 and because of the chip, he was found after 7 months and reunited with his owner.

      Do check around for pricing.  Some city and county animal shelters provide cheaper pricing then vet.  Also check with Humane Society too.  

      Once the animal is chipped, if you move, you can update the record.  However, change of owner will not do.

      I am looking into Pet Insurance.  In fact, even think of bringing an awareness.  I will post more information once I find out more.  Stay tuned.

    • Not exactly, I have a cute doggie treat jar that i just throw change into, a dollar here and there etc. and when my pets need a vet I usually have more than enough in the jar to cover the cost. Also I have a vet that comes to your home and she is really good with my pets, It’s cheaper than going to the clinics and easier on the pets too.
