    Do you have insurance for your cat? if so what kind? I had insurance for our dog and nothing she had was covered. So bot sure it’s worth it for the cat.

    Hi everyone. I’d like to share my recent health experience and the conclusion with fellow Sphynx owners. I hope I can help others if they run into a similar situation. I am Marvin's mom - well - I am not really Marvin's mom - he belongs to my daughter - but he lives with me on and off as...

    I wish I hadn’t dragged my feet on insurance

    Hi everyone. I’m at a loss- I got my baby, Frank, back in December. I kept thinking I would sign up for insurance but I kept putting it off, mostly because all the options were so overwhelming and I don’t have insurance for my other pets. Anyways, since I’ve had him, he’s been treated once for...

    Is pet insurance worth it?

    I'm going to pick up my new Sphynx kitten tonight and I've been thinking about whether or not I should get insurance.

    Pet insurance- do you have it?

    I don't know if I really need kitten insurance but I wanted to ask the pros LOL. Do you have it? Would you suggest it? What plans are best? I've been doing a lot of reading but I'm still not sure. Especially when there is no routine coverage.... that seems silly to me. Help!

    Pet insurance

    Of course I'd think of this as I'm about to leave town ... After losing my sweet girl to severe heart issues just before Christmas, I'm hoping to adopt a hairless baby either later this year or sometime next year. Because of the cost from her heart issues (more than $2,000 last year alone)...

    Pet Insurance

    Happy Saturday Everyone .. With Toothless's gotcha day getting closer and having had to go to the vet with Elfie just 2 weeks ago; I've really been thinking about about pet insurance. I'm wondering what everyone else uses; or just thoughts on insurance in general. Thanks!

    I want it all!

    So I've been seriously looking into Pet Insurance, such a drag! I found this nifty website, called petinsuranceuniversity.com It's awesome. After grueling hours of reading, I can't seem to find the "Best" one. I want low deductible, routine care covered, genetic conditions covered if one were to...

    Pet Health Insurance

    I have just spent quite a bit of time looking over old threads and trying my own research online into the confusing world of Pet Insurance. I have discovered that I am starting to run out of time--I found out last weekend that there is a 4 week old baby waiting for me--yikes!!! So, I have...
