Since this is a puppy thread I will put in another plug for pet insurance! I just saw on Facebook that one of our members (Delilah)'s brother was diagnosed with Addison's disease. There is a gofundme for him.

There are a couple young dogs on this forum that were recently diagnosed with Addison's. This is a problem in our breed and it can take thousands of dollars to even establish a diagnosis. The treatment is lifelong. For the price to eat out once a month, you can be covered for unexpected illness and injuries.

Many of you know I accidentally injured Naira's eye on Sunday. Thankfully she was OK, but I can't tell you how comfortable I felt knowing I was backed up by pet insurance. That if it had been really bad, I could afford to take every measure possible. I never had pet insurance on my previous two dogs...and I got lucky.

However, I am really glad I have it now. A couple months ago I wondered if I really needed it and thought about cancelling it. Sure glad I didn't.
