Thanks, I would really advise it! It's horrible to think but accidents can happen so easily. Charlie's treatment is costing around £1200, if the insurance pays out we will only really be paying £120 plus £65. It's a massive difference to us x

I agree. Insurance seems like such an expense each month but it is so worth it if something goes wrong. Our dog poppy had cancer and a skin condition 4 years ago. as she had the skin condiiton when we rescued her we couldnt get it covered by insurance and it cost us almost 1.5 k in a year but as we had the pet insurance when we found the cancer it was covered - thank goodness as she had to ahve a number of operations and it would have been nearly 3k for that. We were devastated when she died but at least we had done everything we could. I now make sure I always have insurance for the 2 doggies, molly and bella, that we have now.

If you do get insurance make sure it's lifetime cover, not annual cover otherwise if your pet has a recurring problem they'll only cover it for a year and then you're on your own. Annual cover is maybe ok for an acute injury / illness but for something long term you need lifetime cover so that the insurance will pay out for life, and when your pet has to have daily meds that can cost quite a lot.

Hi, How's he doing?
 
#28
Sorry for the late reply! He's doing great :) he's home and getting stronger every day. He's having to go to vet every other day to get dressing changed, vet feels happy that he will walk on the paw again but the paw will
Always look a bit different. I'm so pleased :)
Thanks to you all for the support :)

Thanks, he is doing good. Still going to vets around 3x per week as dressing needs changed but they have said there is a massive improvement in the paw and he has made much quicker progress than first anticipated :) he got a wee infection around the nails but nothing too serious. Thanks for the well wishes :)
