We did for a few years but this year I didn't renew it. My dogs are young and healthy so it really only paid for itself the first year we had them and they were puppies. After all the puppy shots, dewormings, spaying, microchipping, etc., it about came out even that year. Otherwise, it didn't. We have money saved away for a rainy day and if my dogs were to need really expensive care we could always dip into that if need be. We're about to have a baby and we just can't afford $700 this year on vet insurance when we have all the baby stuff to get, too. Plus the main thing I worry about is injuries on the lure coursing field and I don't think the insurance covers injuries that happen when the dog is in an organized sporting event.
