we got VPI because they are somehow connected to my husbands work and they will take the $$ out of his paycheck just like our health insurance. I decided to go ahead and get the 'wellness' package with it too ... we'll see how much/if it is worth it this year.
It seems to be pretty good, at least from what I understand. After the $100 deductible, we 'should' get reimbursed 100% of any charges we encur...

Haven't heard of that one. I get emails all the time about the one AKC endorses. I should probably look into it more because you just never know what could happen.
Last year, we had massive bills from when our Lhasa got sick with pancreatitis. It came on suddenly and he went to the emergency vet, was hospitalized, had surgery, hospitalized again, etc. He ended up crossing the bridge the week before Christmas , but the bill still needed to be paid. I am one of those who will pay and do whatever it takes if my lil' one gets sick.

ETA: Wow, just compared prices and the AKC plan is pricey! Will have to compare the two side by side and see how they both stack up.

ya, the plan we are getting seems very affordable, especially since we won't be paying a 'monthly bill' with it coming out of my husbands paycheck, we won't even miss the $$.
I read a bunch of reviews and most of them were very positive. Never thought we would have dog insurance... lol

I want insurance too! I just asked my ex to give VIP to the sisters as a Christmas gift. I'm happy you guys got it for Tillie.

Hmmm...interesting. I was just looking at Brody's neuter bill and I noticed that he got his last set of shots at 4 months (in June of 2011) and they have him due for his next set of shots in 2014.

I have always been a minimalist for all my animals and I wish it was that easy to wait til pups are 16 weeks and have the option to wait that long. Most pups go to their new homes at 10 - 12 weeks of age which would leave them completely unprotected for another month. I think the concept makes a complete sense but most breeders don't keep their pups for that long as most puppy purchasers can barely wait for 10 - 12 weeks to take their new friends home.
