Insurance for pets.

Does anyone here have insurance on their cat(s)

If so, with what company?

I have Pet Care. I've only had to use them once when my kitten had an URI. I was so surprised when a check arrived just 5 days after I made the claim! They covered everything but a $50 deductable. I pay $24 a month for both cats. So far,I'm very pleased with them.

The info our vets office has was for Pet Care. It sounded pretty good, the only thing I didnt like was the fifty dollar per incident deductible. Which, I guess that is a good thing if something bad happens that ends up being real expensive. I would like it better if there was a per year deductible.

nanook, do you have the plan that covers their vaccinations and yearly check-ups too?

No. They only get vacc every 3 years so I just pay for the annual exam. My kitten (1.5 yrs ) has the quick care indoor and my 7 year old has the quick care gold.

My vet charges way less than $50 for each vet visit, so a $50 deductible is a bit high.

Personally, though....I would get it if they pay for holistic care.

insurance

I went with VPI since they had good dental coverage. I knew cats often needed dental work.

My poor girl will almost certainly lose some teeth next two weeks or so and I guess I'll see how the insurance works. I hope it's as good as your experiences are.

I have the same insurance as Jennifer, and I've been satisfied with it so far.
