Question Health Insurance?

Does anyone here in the US have health insurance for their babies? Is it worth it? How long have you had it? Can it be used for routine check ups? What company are you using? Starting to consider the option (especially for Jo since he'll be working, while the other two are house dogs) but I don't know much about it...

Would love any information.

I'm from the UK... I do have insurance and think it's important. You never know what health problems your baby could encounter in the future and it's good to know that you'll be covered no matter what. There's loads of different plans you can get to suit you, I have mine with the kennel club and I've never had to make a claim (thank god!!) but I just like to know everything would be covered if there was ever any problems.

Okay, my info may not be very good because the last time I had pet insurance was probably 20 years ago. But I remember it being a wash. By the time I paid for the insurance, got ALLLL the required twice annual check ups, alllll the vaccines etc, it would have been better to just have put that money in an account. And, the policy back then was very exclusionary and didn't cover a lot of things.

Yep this is true. I have not heard the greatest of things about pet health insurance. Many of them do not even cover major procedures. And a lot of times it ends up being a complete waste.

Oh I hope mine are covered for everything :/ I hope it isn't a waste.. I'm going to check my cover and double check it's worth it. I've always thought it was necessary because the of the kennel club sales people ringing me to say I need it.
I may reconsider just putting the money into a seperate bank account every month and the money will be there that way.
Is that what you guys do?

Well poo... I was hoping there would be something useful out there now, the last time I personally looked into it was eons ago and yeah it was kinda gimicky back then as well...
Oh well. I guess I'll make an emergency fund instead!
