    Questions? Questions? Questions?

    What are everyone's views on NuVet or any vitamin supplements? Also views on pet Insurance?

    Re: Questions? Questions? Questions?

    I use Nuvet, as I also home cook as well as kibble and want to be sure they are getting the best supplement. I would also say pet insurance is worth the cost as well. We had an obstruction several months back and I could have paid for 5 years of pet insurance for the cost of all those bills.

    Which pet insurance do you recommend, or use?

    What kind of supplement do you use (I'm assuming there is more than one type of Nuvet, but I haven't looked) What home cooked recipes do you use and how do you use it? This topic was titled, "questions, questions, questions", right? LOL

    We use Hardypet Complete for ours, but NuVet Plus is also good. I don't have insurance, so no help there.

    Sheesh!

    I don't have pet insurance with 7 bullies.... but I hear good stuff about Trupanion, VPI and Pet Plan.

    I will post up my home cooked base recipe, it's rather delicious! (I sneak some for myself too!)

    I use NuVet, I will post up all about that too since I opened a recommended products forum and haven't started adding to it yet

    Re: Questions? Questions? Questions?

    I think I'm going to go with VPI it was the cheapest with the same amount if not more coverage than the others!! I am definitely going to start Louie on NuVet too!!! Thanks for everyone's advice!!

    Re: Questions? Questions? Questions?

    I am looking at Trupanion. They will pay the Vet directly instead of having to pay before reimbursement. Also no limits per claim, per incident, or per year and no lifetime payout limit. Our pet insurance covers all diagnostic tests, surgeries, and medications if your pet becomes sick or injured. This includes hereditary and congenital disorders, and chronic or recurring conditions.

    Doesn't cover Routine care, Veterinary exam fees, Pre-existing conditions, Applicable sales tax.

    You can also add Additional Care Package that covers :

    Acupuncture
    Physical therapy
    Hydrotherapy
    Behavioral modification
    Training/therapy
    Bone marrow transplants
    Chiropractic
    Colloidal silver treatments
    Gold seed therapy (gamma knife)
    Herbal therapy
    Homeopathy
    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
    Kidney transplants
    Naturopathy
    Naturopathy
    Platelet rich plasma injections
    Polyethylene glycol (medication)
    Shockwave therapy
    Stem cell therapy

    For my piece of mind I think this is a good thing to have in place. They don't cover the usual wellness exams but, I can deal with cost for routine wellness issues easier than I can come up with 10k or more on the spot.
    Just my opinion and who I intend to use.

    No I do not work for Trupanion. This is a copy/paste from their website.

    Re: Questions? Questions? Questions?

    I have VPI and I have been happy so far. They have 3 different plans to choose from as well as wellness coverage. I have the major medical plan and the wellness plan. While I do have to pay the vet up front and then submit a claim, I have always been reimbursed very, very quickly.
