Charlie, my best investment 😉🥰🐶
I picked him up from the local pound for approx $300. Yes, there are ongoing expenses such as vet fees, anti-worming tablets, grooming, food and toys, but the joy he brings to my life is priceless.
I’m considering pet insurance because I know when he gets older, he’ll have more medical expenses. But it’s about $66 month if I want to include dental (which every dog needs) and I’m just not mentally ready for that yet. I think for the moment, I’ll continue to build up my emergency fund which I can use for him later on. I will reconsider next financial year.
Let me know if you have any pet insurance tips or advice! #dfc#debtfreecommunity#petinsurance#personalfinance#personalfinanceforwomen

“How’d you get Jet?”
“Well, we had another dog before him named Bosco, he passed away back in July. So he was an older dog, and we had gotten him back in like February.”
“That was a short run.”
“Yeah, very short run, he was a senior when we got him and then we only had him for a little bit, but then, the same people that we had gotten Bosco from, we had let them know. They were like, 'you know, I’m sorry to hear that he had passed.' And then they reached out to us and they were like, 'Hey, you know, we have a puppy, the same breed if you guys are interested, we’ll hold him for you guys.' And so we ended up driving all the way out, like four hours to some crazy spot in Indiana to get him, and yeah.”
“And how long has it been now?”
“About a month.”
“How is the process so far? You gettin used to it okay?”
“Yeah, we’re gettin there.”
“We haven’t raised a puppy together, it’s a different process. Bosco, he was very chill; Jet, he has a lot more energy.”

For Pet Insurance Month, we have invited families of insured pets to share their testimonials. Pet insurance helped Sammy's family choose the best course of care for him, when he suffered a debilitating knee injury. Sammy tore his cranial cruciate ligament (CCL), which is comparable to the ACL in humans.
The breakdown of costs was as follows:
Trupanion paid: $3575.01
Follow-up with surgeon: $232.00
Trupanion paid: $208.80
Trupanion paid: $106.73
Trupanion paid: $3890.54
Sammy's Mom says, "I love this insurance, because the claim is run through while we wait...That's a huge plus."
When a dog tears one CCL, there is a very high risk of tearing the other one in the future. While we all hope that doesn't happen, Sammy's family is glad to know that the second repair would be covered under the same deductible they already met! #petinsurance#trupanion#saugusanimalhospital

It’s been nine days of bliss with this tiny blessing 💛💛💛 As we get to know Cali we love her more and more. Because of this, we want to make sure she has EVERYTHING she needs to be happy and healthy ➡️ Starting with Pet Health Insurance. This is NOT an ad. Pet insurance is just plain smart. @nationwidepet offers coverage for rabbits for an extremely reasonable monthly fee. 👍🏻
We added Cali to our family plan today and it will take effect in two weeks. It is easy to set up and will help with the cost of illnesses and emergencies (🚨some things are excluded!)
Nationwide will ask a series of questions about possible pre-existing conditions and may ask permission to contact your vet to verify.
Note: routine annual checkups, vaccinations, grooming, etc are not covered.
We can speak from experience (2015 with Amber🌈). We had some major medical bills adding up to $4000 and the reimbursement was approved for around half of that amount.
You can’t always predict illness and injuries, but you can prepare financially. A sick pet is stressful enough without worrying about the bill. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Also...and I understand not everyone is in a position to do this but...if you set aside a little 💵 from each pay for your pet emergency fund it sure comes in handy. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #bunnydad#bunnylove#bunnylife#nationwidepet#petinsurance#adoptedbunny#dailybunny#animalsofinsta#daddysgirl#cali#rabbitcare#OnYourSideMoments

☹️💊 let’s get medical... Chami was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia. Hip Dysplasia is a genetic desease that’s cause by an abnormal formation in the hip socket. The joints grind against each other rather than slide and that causes so much pain. He’s doing better for now, currently in an anti pain treatment but surgery is needed to correct this 100%. Although it’s something that couldn’t be prevented as dog parents we do wish we could’ve given him joint supplements earlier to make this process easier for him 💔 We are so lucky to have pet insurance that covers all medical procedures needed for Chamaco, and if there’s one piece of advice we can give to all current and future pet parents out there it would be to GET PET INSURANCE. We recommend it so much, it won’t just cover your pet medical needs but it will also bring you peace of mind when it comes to the bills. We’ll be documenting the process of Chamaco’s recovery once the surgery happens, we know the outcome will be successful since he’s in the best hands and has all the love from us and you ❤️ ✨ #brusselsgriffon#hipdysplasia#petinsurance#petitbrabancon#mynameischamaco

Hi frenz 🐕
Being a puppy, I like to explore the world with my whole body! If I find something that smells good, I poke it with my toe beans 🐾 , mlemm it with my tongue 👅, or roll my whole body on it if it smells really good! 💩
Sometimes I forget I’m not such a smol pupper anymore and I try to squeeze into tiny spaces. Other times I think I’m a big boi and I try to chase the grumpy stray goose away from the pond. So far, the goose wins... and I run back to mommy.
How financially conscious are you?
I have always been very good managing my money.
This year, I made a dream come true by buying my first house 🏡. Plus, I finally got a puppy, now that I have a nice backyard 🐶❤.
Owning a house and a dog is a privilege and a responsibility. There are so many new expenses and eventualities I needed to be financially ready for. It has been very stressful, but I have learnt a lot the past months. @comparethemarket_aus helped me to save time and money (no hidden fees) by providing a wide range of home & contents and pet insurances to choose from. Better be ready than sorry.
You can take the Financial consciousness quiz too, if you want to discover how financially conscious you are.
I got a 64, not bad... But, there is always room for improvement.

I mean seriously.... how cute was he? .
PSA: puppies are great! So cute and fun to watch grow! As a pet owner we don’t think of health issues that can present later on. In September 2018 I was with @matildarose_thebulldog at the beach and her mom asked if I had health insurance for Morty. I told her no and she proceeded to tell me the reasons why I absolutely should get him insured. That was some of the best advice I could’ve gotten. We got him insured and within a month he was having horrible skin issues. Between meds, skin scrapes, vet visits, etc. our insurance paid for itself immediately. As a responsible pet owner (especially bulldog owners) we should be able to provide the best care for our babies. So thankful for the advice I was given that day and beyond thankful for @gohealthypaws insurance for covering Morty and giving me peace of mind.
