  1. Rescues and Pet Insurance

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Out of "pure curiosity" (i.e., I don't see myself getting a rescue, of any breed)... With the "obvious value" of getting pet insurance, and with all of the insurance's have exclusions for "pre-existing conditions", how well does that work with getting a dog from a rescue? If you have...
  2. Pet Insurance, Vitamins/Supplements?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    I got a golden puppy and am looking into Pet Insurance. What pet insurance do you have, why, and about how much does it cost on average per month for you?

  8. Pet Plan vs Healthy Paws Pet Insurance?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I did research on the forums and it's time to buy my girl some insurance. Healthy Paws is fairly new, checking in for any new recommendations or warnings. And do any of them cover routine care? Pet Plan seems comparable to Healthy Paws.

I didn't have insurance and I ended up spending $13,000 in just 9 days after fees for the ICU...

    I'm looking to get a Golden (hopefully soon :crossfing). And have been in contact with several hobby breeders in my area. Have any of you bought a puppy from a breeder without parent health cert.s or puppy health "guarantees"? In a way it makes me feel a little more assured about the puppy's...
  12. should I get Insurance for a new puppy? (8 wks old)

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So my puppy is 6.5 wks old now, and Simba is coming home at 8 wks. I have been doing quite a bit of research, and wondering if I should enroll him for any pet insurance already?
