Arrghh pet insurance, tell me about it!!!! We considered getting insurance on our labx but put it off, we had no kids, cash to spare......$10,000 over a three year period with this dog!!!!!! 7years later and she hasn't given us more than a bee sting treatment, so I count my lucky stars she's remained relatively healthy for the last seven years.....don't even ask me to list off the weird and crazy accidents and illnesses that became this dog!!!!! it was one stupid accident after another, then mystery lumps, bowel torsions, shoulder surgery, barbed wire fence wounds, etc etc etc.......ugh she's the Frank Spencer (Some mothers do ave em! - English comedy) of the dog world!!!
If all this had happened to her now, we would probably have to euth her, we now have a set in stone $2000 limit!!!
