Hey everyone,
after reading about how insurance is really a good idea i started looking into it myself..i went to my vets and he gave me a pamphlet which had 6 different insurance companies on it. Just wondering if any of you guys have heard/are using these companies and could recommend them (i dnt know if they are international or national companies etc)...
- AFS Pet Med
- Pet Secure
- Merial Perfect Partners Pet cover
- RSPCA Pet Insurance
- Vet Own
- Insurance Line

I also was curious as to around how much you are paying each month for it. Thankyou very much! :p

i don't think i've heard of those, but i'm in the US, maybe that's why.
I pay $53 US a month for 100% coverage, $50 deductable per incident, lifetime maximum $6000 per illness category, somethinng like 12 illness categories about $70,000 lifetime coverage, but again, just $6000 per category. I'm hoping it will be enough. the company i have (petcare) has much lower premiums for less coverage, there's a whole range, from about $25 a month up to what i'm paying.

My dogs are both with Argos and I pay around £26 per month to insure them both. This is for £5000 worth of cover a year.

We pay £12.60 a month with Direct Line. I had a good look around and could have got it cheaper but Direct Line seems to have the best cover...

All my three are with Sainsbury's, and despite the delay to the MRI scan money, I have never had any problems with them - touch WOOD.
