    Question EBD Insurance Providers, Costs, & Experiences

    I currently have insurance on Brutus Mayhem, however our insurance is through AKC & is $116 [replacer_img] per month to include wellness and accidents covering 80%...... however A) I think that is to expensive & B) They are taking double the time to process his claim that they state on their website [replacer_img] ..... If anyone has any good companies they would recommend, how much they are paying, or any details we would love to hear about it. We want to make sure Brutus is always protected, but we also want to make sure we are getting the best company with a good rate. [replacer_img]

    We were originally going to self insure, however AKC offered an initial free period so we took it & were so glad that we did since he had a fractured leg & diaphragmatic tear at 11/12 weeks. My girls don't, but I know the health issues that EBD's can have with so many health issues, we want to always be prepared no matter what comes our way in any situation.

    We had Trupanion for Maggie. After the first year they literally DOUBLED the monthly premium and came up with some stupid arse story that they were forced to do it because of the cost of veterinary bills. Yeah right ... vets have all doubled their fees in a 12 month period. When I cancelled they wouldn't let you until you spoke to a customer service advisor who tried to tell me that she understood all of my problems because she had a pug, and that I really shouldn't cancel Maggie's insurance. I did anyway .... so I got a letter from the customer service advisor telling me again how she understood all the problems and relating all the pros and cons of Bentley's insurance. Yep ... apparently I am the proud owner of Bentley the Bulldog. I wrote back and suggested that she change the name of the dog all the way through the letter next time she sent out her "personalised" letter to the owner!!

    I have Trupanion and I have nothing but good things to say about them! I pay a little more for NO deductible and they reimburse me 90%. I pay approx $125 total for my English Bulldog and my Cocker Spaniel, so I don't think it is that bad....plus it has paid for itself a few times over already. My claims were paid within a week and had no troubles....it also covers hip displaysia.

    Lucky you!! My initial monthly payment for Maggie was about $62 a month, and after 12 months they increased the premium to $121 a month. That's with no deductible and 90% coverage after the office visit charge.
