Personally, I think you would be better off taking that money you would be spending monthly on pet insurance and depositing it in an emergency fund bank account. I have known a few people with pet insurance and it seems like a high cost for very little return. Just save the money yourself, that way even if you never need to use it it's still there.

Re: Pet insurance for our birds??

I don't know about pet insurance for birds. It's something I would like to look into, however like human insurance there are deductibles/co-pays/etc. Plus they more than likely work on a reimbursmant plan, where you pay out of pocket and then submit the claim.

For now though, we've just been putting money in a savings account as a emergency fund. That's working out well for us. If we need to withdraw money, we just use the atm. lol

Pet Insurance can be a really good idea. My parrot cost a little over $1,700! So, if something happens, having that insurance would be well worth your investment. Just my thoughts.
