We strongly recommend pet insurance. Providing optimal medical and surgical care is not inexpensive and many owners find themselves in the unfortunate situation of not being able to provide necessary care due to financial constraints. In the face of a catastrophic illness or injury you might find yourself having to choose euthanasia even when your pet's condition is treatable. This is, needless to say, a very difficult position to be in.
There are many different pet insurance companies out there and although we do not endorse any specific policy, we have searched the internet and found a variety of sites offering comparative reviews of the different companies. Based on our research the following companies always seem to receive good ratings:
Healthy Paws - healthypawspetinsurance.com
Petplan - gopetplan.com
Trupanion - trupanion.com
We encourage you to do your own research, carefully compare plans and make sure you don't base your selection on just one website posting a positive review.
