    Yup. Basil is now at 1100 and counting for a very tricky ear infection, argh! But he’s gorgeous and has massive feet so we let him off ;-)

    I wouldn't even want to count

    Phillip got to 2000 in 2018 and that's just what we claimed on the insurance before it maxed out!

    Snowy wasn't insured but got to at least 1000 last year in vet bills alone. She gave our credit card a battering several times during her life with us.

    But I wouldn't change a thing, I'd do anything for my animals

    I've never stopped to add it all up, the food, cat supplements, vets bills, madams pedicures, I would probably be shocked if I did. But to be honest, I don't care, as long as I can pay it I will. I would rather go without myself, they are worth every penny to me.

    We do that too, but with Clementine and Atticus and all their health issues and management requirements it adds up, so we keep track a bit more Clementine is well over 7k atm which sounds kinda mad, but it soon adds up. She's had a lot of care though and help with stuff, wouldn't change anything, the nightly grooms make everything worth it, as does seeing her fuzzy face each morning

    I wouldn't change a thing either they are & always have been my greatest joy - I don't need anything for me other than to know they are as happy, healthy & protected as possible

    I don't have bunnies any more but Alfie (my 'dearest' bunny) was relatively cheap compared to some of the costs mentioned here. I never used to add it up though, just paying each individual bill was painful enough.

    We have a total care plan now for the cats and it's so much less stressful. 43 a month each and no worries about any vet costs, not even an excess. We added up how much Freddie would have cost us in his first year and, although I can't remember actual figures, we were quids in.

    We have 5 cats and then R'Stan the bun.
    All insured. Stan is the only rabbit we have ever insured. Ozzie who we lost last year totted up over 500 before we lost him.
    Our outlay monthly in petplan is 120 but we have used it nearly every year that we have had it. Cats have tipped 1000 more than once.

    I like that I can say yes lets try that with a vet and hopefully give the pet the best chance. Yes we could have a good holiday each year instead but thats only 14 days. Pets are 365.

    My vet unfortunately has a pay first claim after policy but with Stan I asked if there was any kind of plan and they were agreeable to doing direct claim. Think they need to be confident in the client first. They are a small practice.

    I shudder to think how much I have spent over the years on cats and rabbits. It will be upteen thousands. But to me its worth it. Although Stan is last bunny standing and the cats wont be replaced until we are at the point of being without......unless something turns up at the door
