I've heard of pet insurance but I don't know anyone who has it. Does anyone have it? Is it a good idea to have?
I had the experience of spending a couple of afternoons at a VET ER a few months ago. I saw people coming to the reception area to pay their bill, or hearing the dog's owner being told how much the treatment would cost. Over a thousand dollars was more the rule than the exception, and this is with no long term care involved.hmm, i was thinking about this earlier actually. I dont have it, but i dont know wether i should get it or not.
He's registered with the pdsa, which is for families with little income, so i dont suppose i'd need insurance. if something went wrong then i dont think i'd pay as much as others anyway.
I dont know, i guess i'll have to ask them if i should still get it?
Capbob-I have VPI and it is worth every penny, just for the peace of mind it gives me. I am covered up to $8,000 with a $50 deductable for $135 a year. This way I don't have to worry about affording a high vet bill in case of an accident or illness.......It is pretty easy to run up a multi thousand dollar bill at the vets.
I didn't get the plan with the routine care, because I wanted more of a catastrophic policy, to help cover the expence of a major injury or illness.Capbob-
They have 2 plans - VPI Senior and VPI + Routine Care
You seem to have VPI senior. Is it not worth pay so much for insurance company for routine care? Is that why you choose just Senior plan? Please advise.
