I don't. I have money in the bank that is their "insurance". At about $500 a head, with 3 dogs, I have never had vet bills anywhere near the $1500 mark total up in a year...

I think it might be worth it, but I just don't know. I don't really need another bill each month for about $130 or so. I love my babies, but I think money in the bank and available credit is as good as I can do.

Why so much? I've been getting quotes around $153/year for my pure Chi and $98 for my Shorkie (Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix).

We have it. I'm afraid to drop it because Daisy has LP and they cover it. If we change companies or drop it the LP won't be covered if she needs surgery.

We don't. I have a fire safe (lockbox) with extra cash in it for the dogs. Granted it has dwindled down with Jer not being paid for 8 months, but we put away what we can in case of a pup emergency.

I have Petplan.

I don't know if it's covered because we got the policy before she was diagnosed or if they will cover it after diagnosis.
