    Do people actually buy these things?

    I'd never wear it normally but my niece and nephew would get a kick out of it. I figure I can wear it to their next bday.

    By clicking in this thread Google has probably picked up on it. You won't be able to unsee.

    Hmm, might see if I can put my dog's face on a shirt and get him earning a living. He's going in for emergency surgery tomorrow which will be a tidy $6k which is on top of the $1k I have spent today....

    Thank you. Ruptured ACL so thankfully not life threatening.

    Yes fortunately we do have pet insurance which hopefully they won't try and squirm out of paying once I make a claim. I was just having a 'woe is me' moment after getting home from the specialist. Best case scenario is we will be out of pocket for a little bit while they process the claim. Most important thing is my furry friend is getting the surgery he needs.

    I was too scared to add up all my bills but I think mine was about 8k give or take. I have insurance now but I suspect it's a waste of money. I've heard nothing but bad things about them.

    I don't want to add mine up from over the years either! There's been a few occasions I should have claimed but never did which added up would be a sizeable amount.

    I have never claimed for my older dog but did for my younger dog last year when she thought it was a good idea to eat a life time supply of worming tablets as well as the foil packaging and the box it was delivered in and the vet bills were, from memory, a couple of Grand so made a claim which was paid a couple of weeks after without issue.

    I'm concerned this time around that they might try to squirm out of it and put it down to a pre-existing injury or something like that rather than pay.

    If it was smoking a pipe I would consider it

    I like random **** that no one in their right mind should buy, but someone out there is making money!

    I had to read the post twice. Why would anyone buy dog sh*t?

    Sorry to hear about your pup.

    Good news about the insurance though.

    Which company is it with?

    I've made three claims with bow-wow-meow (I think it's what they're called - I might be making it up) and all have been hassle free. All were pretty large claims.

    Cheers

    Jamie

    :(
    Hope he's well soon

    Re insurance - depends on provider. Some will cover lifetime, as in if you were covered before it started, then subsequent treatment is considered a continuation and not "new pre-existing" (or whatever they call it). For some insurer, $6K doesn't sound too big of a pay. I know several that several $$$$ paid without issue. Fingers crossed.

    I know a guy who wears the wolf shirts to clubs. He says they are so bad, girls come up to tell him how bad it is. He than works some medieval magic(as he refers to it) I'm going to quote him here "takes them home so they can howl"

    Thank you :) HCF. I thought I had the insurance since he was a pup but we've had it in place for 4 years (he's 7) and it's our younger dog that we insured from 12 weeks of age. I'm 99% sure there were no visits to the vets about his back legs while he was uninsured but I am very skeptical about insurance companies unfortunately.

    Cheers! I've had a read of the PDS many times over and definitely covered for ACL but they have a bilateral exclusion where if they have 2 of something it's treated as 1. The specialist said that he suspects my dog as a partial tear in his 'good' leg so that will need surgery too sooner rather than later as it's better to do it before it ruptures. THe other leg will fall under the bilateral condition but still covered as not pre-existing. Just might exceed my $12k p/a limits. Policy renews in May so might wait for then if not detrimental to Bix.
