    Default Pet Insurance

    I recall reading about pet insurance on here but can't seem to find the information again. What pet insurance would you recommend and why? I think we are going to purchase it since I have read about so many bulldog health issues on here.

    Heres one of the better threads about Pet Insurance. We have Trupanion. Luckily we've never had to use it (knock on wood). But just gives us peace of mind. They did hike our rates after the first year..EVEN with no claims! But have heard good things about this company..

    We have Trupanion too. They've never given me a problem with a claim and I usually get a check within 2 weeks. I think they're great

    If you go with them, choose plain old Bulldog as the breed.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    I just read that thread. Lots of great information there! Thanks again! Trupanion looks like the best choice for us. I was thinking of $1000 deductible to keep the premiums down.

    I started with $500 deductible..and the optional hip dysphasia coverage..I think our premiums were $32.. After first year the same coverage was going to be $70..so I increased deductible to $1000 and it's now $34 ..I think.. means it'll only be there for major stuff..but it sure makes me more comfortable.

    Petplan is another good choice..@BabyDuke is very happy with them!

    I chose Pet Plan insurance. http://www.gopetplan.com/ We didn't get insurance for Aubrey, and we learned our lesson. Aubie was insured from the day we brought her home. We haven't had to use it, but I feel better knowing its there if we need it. We were so blind sided by Aubrey's condition that we want to make sure we have a plan for the future. I highly recommend getting pet insurance, even if you never use it.

    I wonder what the difference between Abby and Bubba is? The age maybe? I pay 55.00 a month with a 50.00 deductible. We also have the optional benefits package for hip dysplasia, acupuncture and physical therapy.

    For me, her name was Abby

    I am going to get Healthy Paws for our little guy. We are going to sign him up right when we get him. There is a 15 day waiting period and as long as nothing goes wrong during that time everything should be covered. In terms of hip displasia, as long it doesn't show up within the first year then it is covered for life. We are going to pay around $65 per month for 90% coverage, $100 deductible, no annual or per incident limits on claims and unlimited lifetime benefits per pet.
