    Some say yearly others say every three years. There are some people that believe we over vaccinate by doing it every year. I am pretty sure Karlin has a sticky about it.

    I found the quote in a thread with a vaccination question I asked.

There would be some risk that cats could bring in distemper or parvo, but the risk is pretty miniscule. if you are worried, I would ring your vet and just have a chat.

    Puppies never have the full immune strength of adult dogs, really, during their 1st year of life. The one year booster is quite important, but after that, many people advocate going onto a 3 year core vaccine scheme or waiting even longer. There is very good evidence that dogs not only do not need to be vaccinated every year (or cats), but that this actually raises the risk of certain kinds of illness (cancers forming around the site of vaccines for cats, for example).

    Hi, I'm with Petplan (Allianz) and would be one of the people who claim all the time for both my dogs - SM and CHF. I would be a lot worse off financially without it as Bosco's SM meds alone are 278 every 40 days.
    Some people prefer to put money aside each month as savings for whenever they need to pay the vet, it's really a personal choice. For me, because I have two sick dogs, I am so glad I took it out -it has taken the worry from having to pay the bills. If you are going to get insurance do it quickly before any health issues show up, because once you have been to the vet about a particular problem the insurance co won't cover you.
    Best of luck.

    I would always have insurance. My first dogs were x Breeds and they were insured and I never claimed a penny in their entire life. I am glad that again I took out insurance with my Cavaliers. I got the best cover (lifetime cover) you can get for all three of mine. Between the two of them last year I claimed 6,000 pounds. I am glad I got lifetime cover as I know I can give them the best there is.
