We are looking at getting insurance for our cavaliers. We reside in the USA and are looking for people's opinions. Can anyone offer suggestions?

I have PetPlan for all 3 of mine and am very pleased with them. Their rates are decent and their response is great. I've had to file several claims in the past couple of years and they have been outstanding. Their website is gopetplan.com. I just changed my plan to Silver, $200 deductible, 20% co-pay since my rates went up this year.

It's great that you are planning to insure, I think it is essential with a Cavalier - this thread may help you

I have Embrace for my cavie. 64 dollars a month including dental and meds. We live in the US too.
She isn't spayed, so i think it's a tad more but my first claim got handled with urgency and i got my check in the mail within 3 weeks so I have to say I am happy with them. They know about her SM which is pre-existing so when I brought her into the ER only 3 weeks after my waiting period was over, when she was vomiting really bad one night, I thought Embrace me blame the omeprazole she was on but they covered everything no questions asked.

Petplan. They are one of the only insurance companies I know that do not exclude breed specific problems (like MVD for cavaliers), medication and also cover alternative therapies like acupuncture. My plan is for $8000 a year coverage, I pay like $30 a month and have 0% co-insurance and $100 deductible. They just covered almost all of a $1100 emergency vet bill and will soon be covering another $800 in vet bills and a specialist visit (cardiologist). :thmbsup: I've had them for about a year.
