    Yes, Castor has an insurance which covers part of veterinary costs but it does not cover medicine costs. It's expensive but it did cover two thirds of the cost for his soft palate / nares surgery last year and this year it has so far paid for some costs in connection with an eye ulcer, so I realise the value of having him insured.

    Not anymore. I had Trupanion for Blue. Had it for 2 years and recently cancelled. They denied most of his bills, claiming pre-exisiting even if there was never a diagnosis, but a simple mention of something in his chart.

    Yes, I have Trupanion for both; i think i'm fortunate b/c i enrolled both of them as soon as I brought them home so I had no pre-existing conditions to document.

    Yep, we have VPI - I've been pleased with them.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I have Trupanion as well, have had for two months. I pay $90 a month for both Bullies. Do you mind saying if your cost is about the same? My mother has insurance for her Boxer and pays less than $20 a month. I don't know who it is through or what it covers though.

    that's a good rate for both. I pay more: $116 for both with each having a $500 deductible. I was paying more but i increased the deductible. I know my rate has gone up since i've had the insurance, most likely b/c i had several claims for both boys.

    Harlea has Trupanion and they have paid everything we have submitted. Sadly, we all know others that have had Trupanion that they didn't pay squat so it is obviously hit or miss.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    No, he has a savings account. I had one on my other dog and it just wasn't worth it so we now put that money + $$ into a savings account. It will be used for emergencies or big bills only, not every day stuff.

    Yes, we have Healthy Paws Insurance and so far are very happy with them. We have a $500 deductible, and then they reimburse us at 90%. So far we have been reimbursed with in 5-7 days of filing a claim. It has really come in handy since he has been doing allergy testing and drops, and Apoquel. They haven't given us any grief over treatment.
