    Question Doggy Insurance

    Given my recent bout with Jack's surgery I was left wondering how many of us are covered for accidents and Illnesses and how many Bite the Bullet (as I did)

    Lol! My insurance is just insurance! Not preventative..but will cover accidents and even hereditary problems. I also got the optional hip dysplaysia coverage. Have you looked into Carecredit..as a great backup to insurance or even instead of...

    I have insurance on both my pups. I had VPI and their pay out on major medical is a joke (you can search for my posts about my experience-I link it for you but I'm on a silly Itouch right now). I switched to GoPetPlan and it costs a bit more bit nearly everything is covered, including theft or death. I just submittied two claims for each pup for the allegery testing I elected to have done solely for my own reference and they covered it all at 80 percent (the coverage I choose). It all got applied to each pup's deductible (each test was $195). They were incredibly prompt on the claim handling, including their response time unlike VPI was. I highly recommend them.

    I have VPI (have for the past 5 years) and I personally have had nothing but positive experiences with them. I have him on the major medical and their routine care rider. Honestly, over the past 5 years they have paid me more for my claims than I ever paid in premiums so I have nothing to complain about LOL

    Sure! No secrets here! I pay $35 per month..including hip dysplasia coverage..I did elect to get a deductible of $500.. I have Trupanion and I did tons of research..but I did hear they recently raised their rates..and yes you are correct what carecredit is! It's wonderful ....
