Pit Bull (Health) Insurance Prices?

2

I’ve taken the liberty to take quotes from different insurance companies. These are by no means exact amounts, but they offer a little more information then you know now, and can steer you in the right direction. I’ve only taken screenshots from Pet Insurance companies, not home insurance companies.

I would also like to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of some of these insurance companies.  They are all very legit and very prominent insurance companies, but there are strengths and weaknesses as there are with everything.  Best Pet Insurance covers up to 80% on all of their plans topping out around $81.00 for their best plan, while covering 80% of everything with $100,000 life coverage.  24 PetWatch Insurance covers 90% of everything yet only costs about $71.90 per month, but only offers $72,000 lifetime coverage.  VPI Pet Insurance costs around $58.87, but wont tell you the lifetime coverage (there may be no limit), but the yearly coverage is $14,000.

In the end you’re going to have to decide for yourself which coverage is right for you.  When I did this experiment, I chose an American Staffordshire Terrier, 3 years old, Male, Not neutered, and no microchip, and those are the results I came up with.  If your dog is different, then you may get different quotes, or if you live in a different state then me, quotes may change, but those quotes are as of Maryland.

Other extra coverage you should look out for:

  • Accidents
  • Lab Tests
  • Surgeries
  • Prescriptions
  • Hospitalization
  • Vaccination
  • Heart worm
  • Flea Control
  • urinalysis
  • Dental or Spay/Neuter

These are all coverage items that you should look out for.  If all of these are in a plan, where at least most of the payments are covered, you’ve found yourself a good plan.  I’d recommend you still do some searching as prices shouldn’t be the only thing you base your choice on.  Pit Bull Insurance is something every owner should have, regardless if the dog is dangerous or not.

  1. Hi!

    My name’s Tammy and I’m the Marketing Coordinator here at The Uncommon Dog. Your blog recently came to my attention as a part of our search for quality dog and pet blogs. I thought you might be interested in an info-graphic we recently created titled “How Dogs Became Our Best Friends!”.

    If you love dogs, like we do, then you’ll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging info-graphic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.

    If you would like to share this info-graphic with your readers, please feel free to do so. You can find the info-graphic here: http://www.theuncommondog.com/how-dogs-became-our-best-friends.aspx The only thing that we ask in return is that you link back to TheUncommonDog.com, in some way, from your post.

    Also, definitely let me know if you do decide to post it because we’d be happy to spread the word about the blog post by linking to it from our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.
