Well here in the UK if you are unemployed you can apply for what is called PDSA in that you just give a donation for most treatment that your pet
Pet insurance really isn't too expensive and well worth it in the end.
I had insurance for years but my dog was always fit and healthy and we used to walk over 5 miles a day until last year when I developed osteo
arthritis plus my back went completely due to heavy lifting etc when I was younger so had to stop.
You never think anything is going to happen to your pet, its always someone else's that is the unfortunate one.
I saw my dog limping badly for a few days and regardless of what it was going to cost, I went to the vet who said it was a massive wart between his
paws of all things. He said it was like walking with a pebble in your shoe all the time.
He arranged surgery next day and had to knock him out which was traumatic for me as I held him while he went under. A few hours later he was home and
still a bit groggy but not limping at all and now he's back to,his old self.
So get insurance because you never know when you might need it. Bit like car insurance, pay it for years and never need it until one day you do, or
like health insurance. We don't need that as we have the NHS here but animals do require it.
