$12.50 per month per dog or $9.00 per month per cat seems like a very reasonable expense to help heal your pet when injured. Please check out the following news release I received in my InBox.

Healthcare is also a prime subject these days for pets and their owners.
According to the American Pet Products Association Americans spent $45.5 billion in pet industry expenditures last year and are estimated to spend $47.7 billion this year. Veterinarian care accounted for $12.04 billion in 2009 and is estimated to increase to $12.79 billion in 2010, the largest percentage increase among pet expenditures.
All pet owners have had it happen. Or worry about it happening. And it can be a moral dilemna.
When your pet meets with a tragedy – whether it comes via a car tire, fight with another animal or any other numerous injuries that happen to our pets – how do you pay for the care required to heal your pet?
How can you possibly decide if you are GOING to pay for the care needed?
PurinaCare Insurance Services Inc has developed new pet insurance plans to cover only accidents. PurinaCare® now offers an Accident Only Policy that is priced at $9 a month for cats and $12.50 per month for dogs. Owners able to sleep at night = priceless.

Pet insurance is a great idea and 12 bucks a month for a dog is nothing!
I hope they can come up with a similar plan for pet health insurance someday but the premiums would have to be different for every breed I guess.
Yeah very reasonable for the safety of your pets.
