I am thinking of going with PetPlan as well. My dog is 9 months old, not spayed (yet... hopefully soon), and micro chipped.
However, the reason I've been on and off for months with whether I should get the pet insurance is she is already not very healthy. She has SIBO, I believe her hips may not be the best (not showing pain, but they seem weak to me... which is a possibility since she is a BYB/puppy mill dog), and her skin isn't very good. She's already racked up almost $2500 in additional vet bills (not basic upkeep care). I know there is more to come.
I would love something to help with medical costs, as she is known for some big bills which is very hard to afford out of pocket sometimes.... but, not sure which would work best for us... and whether it would help at all! I also NEVER want to be in the situation where I can't afford to treat my dog if anything happened to her. I would prefer something to cover hips (if possible). Anything that has good coverage with a decent price.
Anyway, after reading through this thread, PetPlan seems to be what would work for us..... What do you think? Is pet insurance worth it?
