They could well be Rachel ... Your vets have known you and your's for long enough now so should know they can trust you x

On the other end of the scale, say there was only £250 in and sudden treatment came to £500 for example, you wouldnt have to worry because your vet knows the monthly amounts will be paid in regularly and with this, the difference will be cleared anyway. Then, you start again to rebuild the account. Xx

It is a fab idea but in my circumstances im so glad I was insured from the off but let's face it my case is probably not the norm. I think if I had to do it all again I would take up the "free month" insurance from the breeder , have a thorough check up including bloods and if everything clear start a vets saving plan like you do Lia . Like you say the money is always available and in years to come if it has t been touched it is still there for the next one or returnable . Brilliant Idea xxxx

Yes your's with Tinks is definitely a different scenario hun but glad you think my vet account is a great idea ....... just wish I thought about this years ago instead of pumping it into the insurers who I think I only used once when Honey was spayed when she contracted open pyometra ......... the rest was in the insurers 'pockets' xx
