Pet Insurance

I am a huge believer in pet insurance.  The reality is - I would bankrupt us trying to fix a problem with one of my "kids" and when you have seven little ones things can add up fast.  We chose VPI (www.petinsurance.com) which I have been very happy with.  We have policies for the dog and the cats which include routine annual visits, shots and tests and a rider for cancer treatment should that ever occur.  Clooney and Nigel are on the exotic policy which has much of the same but has a little different coverage.

When we had several health issues with Isabel before she passed away last year the insurance was a lifesaver.  They reimbursed us at a very high percentage.  We almost always recover the amount we pay in premiums each year just with our regular vet visits.  For seven critters we pay about $120 a month - its so worth it and it give me such peace of mind knowing that money is really not a determining factor in the treatment of anything that comes up.  I would highly recommend it for anyone with critters.....
