Re: [FH] Thanks to All - Simon
- Folks, pet care insurance is a great way to shave off stress during the difficult time of a pet's illness. I have insurance on all my guys (4) and althoug it's close to 80.00 a month, every vet visit I send in my claim and it's paid for itself already.
I use www.petcareinsurance.com.
I'll be thinking of Simon, we understand your grief and hollowness. I'm glad you have Snickers...

I also have Vet insurance. I pay £130 a month for 13 cats.. Yes, it sounds a
lot, but Milli had a vaccination sarcoma last year which had a bill of £2800
for full treatment and it was paid directly to the hospital. I am struggling
with the insurance payment, have too many cats at the moment!! but it is
infinitely better than a massive bill like that.
Insurance pays a lot of my heart scan costs as well. I have insured all the
kittens waiting for homes because I know if I didn't, I`d have an emergency at
4am on a Sunday morning!
