Hi everyone. Since January, I lost my precious Minato from something we weren’t sure of. After various emergency vet visits, we thought it could’ve been something neurological or a heart problem. After having his symptoms of constant fainting and dizziness, in a series of 3-4 days of hospital visits, we spent around $2,000 trying to save him. It broke my heart that I had to let him go because I only had one year with him after rescuing him (his previous owner neglected him) which is what I think caused the problems he was having or born with it. Honestly, I wanted to give it another try: my husband misses Minato and he wanted to continue his legacy and get a baby chin (this way we can raise him ourselves with proper care). In case of any emergency, I want to be extra prepared in case of anything. So my question is, would anyone recommend pet insurance for a chin? I was thinking about it with Minato after all the vet visits, but it was too late and I regret it. I know chinchilla care is expensive (especially their vet bills) so I wanted to see if anyone has pet insurance and if it’s worth it?
