    Pet insurance

    I've always heard that pet insurance is great, and so I always planned on getting it one day, but lately I haven't heard very nice things about it.

    Who here has pet insurance? Are you happy with it?
    I've been BOO'd!

    I looked into it. Pet insurance would have been great with my rainbow bridge, Rosco. That guy had parvo, a broken leg, skin problems, ear infections, stress...you name it!

    After looking into it, I decided that for most animals, it isn't worth it. Especially because half the things that I had to take Rosco in for weren't even covered 100%. Most of my dogs growing up never saw a vet until their later days. (Aside from shots.) Roxy has never had to go to the vet. Dusty only went once for that skin infection. So I think it's kind of a waste of money. Animals tend to stay alot healthier then people do. They've got better immune systems.


    Thank you Wolfie!

    Michael and I take the $ we would have spent on premiums and put it in a savings account instead. We doubled our deposit when we could, and we have a nice little savings set aside now, just for the dogs. Of course, not everyone can do that.
