  2. Switching Insurance

    Dog Health Questions
    Not sure if anyone has experience with this, but if so I'd really appreciate any advice! We've been happy with our dog's insurance provider, but I've learned that they switched underwriters and no longer offer our plan-- their plan is now more expensive and provides less coverage. We're...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi: I'm unfortunately tied into the Banfield Wellness plan, which covers routine care. My vet just told me she's moving out of state; I really don't like the other vet and have heard horrible things about the average Banfield vet. Additionally, I'm setting aside $50 a month if something...

    The 30-day free health insurance on my dog will be running out in another couple weeks, and I definitely want to keep him on some kind of insurance.

    So some of you may know that I am getting a puppy soon. Since I now live on my own that means my own bills!

    General Dog Forum
    I purchased the ASPCA Pet Insurance for my new pup (a rescued mutt) on the basis of a) the brand - ASPCA and b) price/payout. I selected the policy mostly for "disaster" type insurance, not everyday "wellness" reimbursement. One would figure that since the ASPCA promotes as one of its top...
