With my upcoming addition to the family I am looking for the best care for my pup. Do any of you dog owners carry pet insurance? If so which carriers. I want to get coverage for her in case the unexpected happens.

I use VPI Pet insurance....I used to be a K-9 Officer and I used them quite a bit....Now my sheppard who is just a house dog, is still covered...Not cheap but better to have than not if something serious comes about. I also get the Cancer coverage.....because no amount of money would stop me from treating my dogs. (I spent 12k on a sheppard with cancer).... all went on a credit card. Dave

Hey, 2300.00 is nothing, my old boss back in PA is right now spending over $10,000.00 on experimental drugs for his dog that has cancer!!! But he has no kids, and his dogs are like his kids!!!!

That was the company I was looking at. We will be getting the insurance. It didn't seem that expensive. I think it was around $30.00 a month.
