I had a pretty reasonable insurance policy for my two ferrets from this company:

http://www.veterinarypetinsurance.com

They insure any pet, they're very easy to work with, and you get a discount for paying annually and for insuring multiple pets.

I didn't feel like going through the QUOTE process but what do you think that it would cost for a dog and a cat??

I forgot to mention this:

It's actually cheaper to set aside money than it is to get insurance. I only recommend insurance to people who have small or fixed incomes, because it actually benefits their lifestyle.

If I recall, it's about $10 - $12 per pet per month assuming the pet(s) is/are healthy and middle-aged. The price goes down if you have more than one pet insured through them. The policy has a deductible, too, but you also get a free checkup per pet per year.

Good to know. Thanks. I have a young cat and an old greyhound. He still has many years left but they would probably break my balls.

I have a 3 year old pure bred Shih Tzu. Our pet insurance runs $35 per month and covers basically everything including cancer.

The reason why I have the insurance is b/c my wife would do whatever it costs to save him if it came down to it. I know a ton of people who have spent $5000+ on medical bills on their dogs. So when his time comes, the insurance will be able to cover most of the expenses.

Will it be worth it? I do not know yet. But the healthy risk is great for the breed especially when they get older and I'd rather know that we have something in place.

If my wife put a Life Insurance claim on one of our pets, I would kill the damn thing for the claim and to stop paying for the insurance. If it is a show dog or used for breeding, then fine, but a house pet? Come on.
