  • When I get another dog, I will *definitely* be getting insurance. There are so many things that can happen that the insurance does cover, not the least of which are "dietary indiscretion" (stoopid dog eats something it's not supposed to) and bloat. Either of these conditions can happen at any time and rack up bills in the thousands, and I've had to deal with both several times. They would have been covered, if I had the insurance.

    There are other insurance companies out there (PetFirst Healthcare is the one partnered with, but VPI has been around the longest. Most companies don't cover congenital/inherited health problems though, so be careful with dysplasia, heart defects, epilepsy, etc. PetFirst will let you buy an extra rider to cover those issues, though.

    Good luck!

    P.S. VPI is reimbursement, not dismemberment. Dismemberment is where a living being is torn limb from limb.

  • I looked into it a couple years ago, and it was very expensive. I don't remember what company it was, the vet's office offered the name since I asked. It was based on the animal's age, if I remember correctly.

  • VPI is the only insurance I know of around here. It is a dismemberment so you pay out of pocket and send in you receipt. You get a check in the mail. The cost were not to bad if you started as a puppy but just like human insurance preexisting things are not covered. It's kinda six to one half a dozen to another if you want it.

  • google dog insurance and you can get instant quotes. and be sure to enter your zip code to see if there are any vets in your area that take that insurance. my pit mix would only be 24 dollars a month for me. i dont think thats expensive
