I have a new friend & Pet Insurance?

As you know I just LOVE puppies. Well, our friend at the training club just got a new puppy. He is a Mudi. Have you ever heard of that breed before? I guess it is a Hungarian herding breed. Seems similar to a border collie but is a bit smaller. He sure was cute and we liked to bark at each other.



So mom is super sad. She received a letter from Trupanion indicating that our Pet Insurance premium is going up. Mom understands that businesses need to raise prices but this is going up by $45 a month. We can't afford that so we need to look into some more affordable Pet Insurance companies. Do any of you have Pet Insurance and if so who is it through and what do you think of them?

    Wow, what a cutie...you and the pup both! Sounds like you had a lot to talk about. Never heard of a Mudi before. Your tail sure is happy to see that little guy! BOL.

  6. We hope you find a decent-priced alternative pet insurance. We hate the way most of these companies are about huge premiums and then trying to get out of paying anything out. ever.

  9. The puppy is cute. We used to have pet insurance, but when we got to 10 years old it more than doubled, so mum cancelled it. We can understand it going up when you get older, but mum has never claimed on it, and more than doubling is ridiculous.

  10. What a cute puppy!

    I had a sickly kitteh for awhile and considered getting some. My vet at the time told me that they didn't typically pay well and that most vets wouldn't accept it, including him. Never looked into after that.

  11. Not familiar with that puppy's breed; I am going to make momma do some research.

    Someone told dad that if you just set up a special savings account and put the same amount as you would pay for a premium in each month, that you would make out better in an emergency than with insurance which typically has very limited coverage.

  12. We recently have our first ever pet insurance company and I'm considering it now.

  15. We don't have any pet insurance, we looked into it once when Charybdis was still alive but a lot of them didn't cover birth defects or problems a specific breed was known for. Our vet does something called Care Credit

  16. Mudi is a cutie, a bit barky too:)

    We don't have pet insurance either. Like the WDA, we hear it makes more sense to have a dedicated savings account that you put those premium payments in AND ONLY touch for out of the ordinary vet bills.

  18. That cute pup sure likes to talk! You might consider putting a higher deductible on your pet insurance so that it is still there for the emergencies but your premium will be less.

  19. i has VPI pet insurance and I have no problems wif it. Mine runs us about 35 dollars a month and included cancer coverage. ($50 deductible per injury/illness and 80-90% coverage after that. I didn't need knee surgery but if I had it would have been worth it all.
