    Default Pet insurance

    I was wondering how many of you have pet insurance and what company's you go through? What are the perks of having insurance and how does it work?

    Thank you for the links! I read through it all and did some research and I think we are going ot go through pet plan because they are cheaper but still cover the same stuff as trupanion. Hope we are making the right choice!

    I wish there was a insurance that you didnt have to pay up front for and was more like our health insurance is! The problem being you still have to come up with the money up front and that is where the problem is!

    Check into Carecredit. Works like a credit card..but it's interest free for 6-24 months. It depends on the size of the bill. It's usually available at your vet..dentist..eye doctor etc. or you can apply online. You can charge your expense on this card and pay it off when you receive reimbursement. Also can put your copayment on it. I highly reccomend it!

    Try looking at Go Pet Plan. Great plan and have monthly, quarterly or annual payment plans. They also cover congenital and have 3 plans to choose from. I use them and like them.

    I was looking at the go pet plan and that looks like what we will decide but also want to look into carecredit and see if we can get that also!

    I'm trying to think why I went with trupaniin over pet plan. I'm pretty sure it's because they covered more with a lower deductible. No limit to what they lay out and extremely fast. I got a check from them within 10 days of submitting my claim for allergy testing. I think also the deciding factor was that trupaniin covered hip dispassion, with a small extra fee. Bubba shies no signs now, but he is still young. If you don't get the coverage for that early, they don't cover ore existing conditions. None of them do. I pay about 50 a month with full coverage with hip displasia. 100 dollar deductible Sooo with it. Go to Internet and look up reviews for these plans and see wwhatvthey say. That's what I did
