I'm looking to get affordable insurance for my new dog his breed has lots of problems later on in life..

 

I saw a top 10 pet insurance list on online and all of them charge $60+,a month I'm looking around the $20 range does anybody here have this insurance and is it worth it?

I probably should have gotten it on mine.

 

Never really looked into it, but man they are an expensive breed.

 

60 per month = 720 per year X 6 more good years for him = 4,300.

 

All together I spent at least that through the years, but he also lived to almost 11.

 

Hips, skin, eyes, pneumonia, ear infections, knees....it never stops.

it appears he has been abused he has scars around his neck from a chain , he has been bit a few times.. When I go to pet his head he freaks like Im going to hit him so I have to be careful. The vet gave me some medicine to help restore his missing hair his belly appears to be shedding. I cant believe someone could purposely hurt him he is such a sweet dog

Because of his skin allergies as a pup, I had him on venison and potato food, as any of the "cheaper" food made him break out like crazy.  I'm guessing it was the filler or grain or whatever they use to be able to use less meat.

 

He grew out of it later in life and I had him on a number of other foods with Purina Beneful affecting him the least.

 

As to the question of what he liked...he never really liked any of them.  I kept his bowl filled and he ate when he wanted, few bites here and there, but never scarfed food down like lots of dogs do.

 

My buddies bully will eat until she can't anymore...just one dog to the next.

 

He could not be eating because of being in a different environment, but that will change with time.

 

If you need him to eat, cook up some eggs and mix an egg in with his food, however if he is maintaining weight, just let him eat when he wants.  Many bullys have to be watched very closely about weight, but you may not have one of those.

 

Man, I miss mine.
