Hi all! My name is Renee and I am the proud new puppy-mum to Bella, a 1 yr old Blenheim Cavalier.
Our family is new to the Cavalier breed, but loving Bella already. We previously had a female Springer Spaniel and are finding the Cavaliers to be much like a young Springer puppy. Absolute lover dogs, smart, funny and a bit quirky. And I have to say that Bella has been the easiest dog to train. She does have a few bad habits, but I sense that they were things her previous owner thought were funny. For example- chasing lights. I wouldn't have a problem wig it but she digs at the carpet trying to catch the reflection off of her collar.
Anyway, I am here looking for advice on pet insurance. I know the risks for this breed, but no idea if the insurance is worth the money. At $35 to $60 a month plus a $200 deductible and.a 20% copayment are we really saving any money? Especially if she doesn't show symptoms for 5+ years.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
