I was originally going to sign up for one of those larger pet insurance companies that you hear about often. But I decided to be thoughtful and do some research. Healthy Paws ended up rising to the top based on the criteria I had. I wanted a company that had high satisfaction scores from clients, covered illnesses/sicknesses, were responsive and most importantly treated me like a person. Not only did Healthy Paws meet these criteria but they also had an added benefit - they actually care about my pet. When I have submitted claims they actually ask how my dog is doing! What insurance company does that? In addition, they have consistently processed my claims in under a week! I absolutely love Healthy Paws and will use them for all my future pets.
