More money than insuring my car

At times I feel a little like I live in a zoo, what with my moggie, a German Shepard and a nutty chocolate lab.
My first dog, a family pet, we had before the invention of the now so popular pet insurance and luckily was healthy throughout her whole life. When I got my own zoo, it was a difficult choce whether to py quite costly insurance premiums for each of my three animals or to take the chance, in the hope that they neve get unwell. We wentvforvthe costly option and now all three of my loveable pets are covered with pet plan! There is a variety of cover that you can choose from. We opted for the top end scale covered for life. This means unlike many insurers who will only over n illness or an injury for a year pet plan allows you to claim again and again each year, up to the set amount, for the same illness, this is on the condition that you renew the policy each year, which although means you don't have a lot of wiggle room in negotiating the price does give you piece of mind. I currently pay £12 for the cat, £30-37 for each dog every month.
It is worth bearing in mind that as with many insurers, it's worth reading the fine print, for example, pet plan state thatif your animal has not had regular check ups and inoculations you are not covered. It will also not cover for pre existing conditions.
It's personal choice to insure or not to insure, but the thought of having to have my animal put down or suffer e my budget doesn't stretch does not bear thinking about. So far despite having not the most intelligent animals who like to think they are indestructible we have yet to need to use it, but people who I know who have, have had nothing but good service
Summary: Just In case - always be prepared!
