    No, we thought about it early on but decided to just have an emergency fund for if anything happened. Of course, we didn't plan for anything like last year, but oh well. I don't even know if insurance would have paid out much for what happened anyway.

    Yes, Castor has an insurance, and we were very happy that it covered two thirds of the costs when he had his nares/soft palate surgery. Apparently not all companies here cover that type of surgery in bulldogs.

    Yes. Haven't had an issue with them paying claims either.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    we used to, and we used it, but then they decreased their coverage because Lola was considered high risk. So I cancelled it while we were ahead. Now THAT doesnt happen very often....an insurance company pays more than it received. They heard it from me alright.

    Yes, we have VPI pet insurance for Winnie and Jack. I've never had pet insurance for any of my dogs before. They have paid Winnie's wellness claims. So far, she hasn't been sick. On the other hand, when our adopted dog, Jack, tested positive for heartworms, I found out they don't pay for treatment of any parasites. Oops. They also don't pay for any pre-existing conditions or congenital conditions, so I'm thinking something like nares might come under one of those exclusions, although I don't know that for sure. It will be interesting to see how it goes.

    No, Never had it for any of my animals, but I also always have an emergency fund, for kids and animals and unexpected bills !
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source
