Question:

: I am purchasing a JRT puppy and I am just starting to add up all of the initial costs of shots, physical exams, neutering, etc and I am wondering if pet medical insurance is worth it? If so is there a reputable company?

Hi Bernie,

It seems more and more people are turning to pet medical insurance and with the cost of just health maintenance it does seem to at the very least be something to look into.

I know I wish I had it when my one terrier ended up with epilepsy, he's doing fine but we have the added expense of having to pay for drugs every month and the frequent testing of his liver.

Anyway I think there are a couple of reputable outfits out there. I don't have the names of them. You might want to check with your vet and maybe some of our readers might know of a few.

Good Luck with your new pup!
Happy Holidays!
Marie
