Do you have pet insurance?

I have never considered getting it until this year. I had to take one of my cats in 3 times to get different testing done. It ended up costing me over $500 and while I was able to pay it just fine, I had to let a few things go (not paying 2 monthly bills). I am thinking of getting pet insurance but I don't know much about it.

I do not. I think it only became a thing in my area just a few years ago. I have no reason to have it but I can understand why it is a good idea for some people. I think it is better to just have a credit card for this sort of stuff. Then you just make payments without paying a premium.

I did have it a few years ago but for what I was paying, I was being ripped off. If you are going to get any kind of pet insurance, go through a bigger company like Geico. I know they have pet coverage rates that are reasonable.

This is what I do. I have a card that is for emergencies dealing with my car, pets, or other issues. It has a pretty high limit as well so I don't need to worry about needing coverage for anything. I get that some insurance covers the cost of the bill but it doesn't seem like most pet insurance does.
