    Pet Insurance...

    Here's the scoop I just got

    1.the vet clinic does not process the claim, you have to pay and get reimbursed ( at least at the clinic she works at) may change in future.

    2. probably worth while for breeds that are prone to hip problems

    3. get it when your dog is still a puppy, rates will be lower, probably not worth it for an older dog

    Here's some advice from NESR's resident farmer:

    Feed 'em and let 'em run. They'll live a while and die happy.

    Dont line the pockets of some small animal vet who wants to do a blood test so he can do a different blood test to see if maybe your dog might get fleas within the next 37 years.

    Yes. I realize that...

    2. probably worth while for breeds that are prone to hip problems
    Most medium to large size breeds can be...

    The policy I'm looking at covers routine exams, check-ups and vaccinations as well as catastrophic stuff...

    3. get it when your dog is still a puppy, rates will be lower, probably not worth it for an older dog
    Yip. I was aware of that also...

    Thanks for checking!

    All right, chisel chest! I'm not an idiot...

    Seriously. I ran into some EXTREMELY expensive health issues with my last dog. Coverage is pretty cheap. I guess I gotta sit down and do some math. CHERYL???

    We looked into it a couple times. We had some pretty hefty bills for our cats and the bottom line we discovered was this:

    1. Expensive if not bought for young healthy pet (who wouldn't need insurance).
    2. Friends had to fight tooth and nail to get payment for some items.
    3. List of exclusions is longer than inclusions.
