My mom actually suggested this one for me what I couldn't get a CC.. Put the same amount of money into a separate account that you would pay monthly for an insurance. So for me it would have been about $45 a month for his insurance. I started just putting that away into a "Titan account" and saving it that way. If I could afford more one month, then great but it was always the minimum. I ended up with a nice cushion after a while.

Wyoung, that makes sense, that's what I wanted to know.
I wanted to just get care credit, or a high limit credit card, but my own personal medical bills have utterly destroyed my credit...

I have Trupanion for Lakota. My vet did what ever paperwork they required and I didn't need to bring her in. What I like about this plan is I do not need to do any annual vaccines of course any vaccine related illness will not be covered.

I do not have pet insurance but did great research on them when I was considering a plan for Titan.
My own advice would honestly be to not have a prior screening unless you know of a pre-existing health issue with your dog. If you do that screening and something new comes of it, the insurance will not cover any of the costs because that is considered a pre-existing condition since you screened for it and found it prior to getting the insurance. Does that make sense?
Well for me I decided against insurance because Titan is fairly healthy. Instead I went with applying for a high limit credit card, like $10,000. I weighed the costs of the monhly payment if I never used the actual insurace, to the monthly payments of the card if I used it. It seemed better for me to pay the monthly payments of the credit card when actually used than a monthly payment that may actually never use.

kr16 has a lot of good posts on health insurance if you want to do a search.

|SaffronTea||Yes, I did do a search, it's how I decided on PetPlan, but I keep seeing posts saying they lucked out by seeing a dentist before being covered, or they did a blood test prior to coverage, which made PetPlan cover certain issues they otherwise would not, and I want to learn more about that, if possible.|

|SaffronTea||Can you tell me more about them? Such as what they do and do not cover? I want to hear personal experiences, if possible. I can look up specifics on their site, but I want to hear your opinion on them.|
