Pet Insurance

I wanted to see everyone's thoughts/experience with pet insurance!

So:
1. Do you have pet insurance?
2. If so, what company?
3. Satisfaction?

1. Yes
2. PetPlan
3. So far I like it. Had to use it one time and they reimbursement me very quickly.

Don't think I will ever own another dog unless I have pet insurance for them.

Yes I have it with Trupanion...I picked that one because some of the other ones don't have coverage for Genetic issues like HD...this one covered it just in case something happens and it will also never go up in price because of his age. I've never had to use it before though, it's only for events over 500 bucks. I'd rather waste the 28 bucks a month knowing he's covered and never have to use it! With my other dog, I wish I would have it had when she had a pancreatitis and enterititis all at the same time...$8,700 later and 10 days in the doggy hospital...yeah, insurance would have helped

Don't bother with VPI. $3100 surgery, $560 reimbursement ($100 at first, $460 more after a threat to cancel). I'd have been better off not buying their product. Now I just have one credit card set aside for vet emergencies.

I am happy with what it covers for what I am playing. I can reduce or raise the coverage at any time as well. They were helpful on the phone and were very quick to get me set up. Not really any hassle or anything, even with Stark not having his boosters (he is titer tested).

I have yet to use them but so far I am happy with their customer service.

Do any of you know if the premium goes up every year on most insurance plans? Or does it stay the same rate for the life if the dog? I will call the companies I am considering on Monday but thought maybe someone here would know.
