I have insurance for my girls. As a vet, I see how quickly the bills add up. My girls are very active and I know it's just a matter of time before one of them tears a cruciate. I chose the insurance route because for the amount of money I pay towards the insurance, it would take several years of savings to pay for one cruciate surgery (and then my fund would be wiped out again!).
ETA: as to the assertion that insurance doesn't cover a lot of things-you just need to research the companies and their policies. There are several good ones out there. Oh and don't change companies-anything diagnosed with the previous company would be preexisting.
