My husband and I welcomed the first addition to our family this past April, our handsome Golden Doodle, that we named Oodles! The only way I was able to get my husband to agree to the name is that his nickname is Oodes! He is the sweetest little six month old puppy. I knew that vet bills could get very costly, so I shopped around for about a month trying to find the best pet insurance I could. Needless to say, the best one I could find was Healthy Paws based on monthly cost, yearly deductable and percentage of coverage. I knew if the time came for our baby to go to the vet god forbid if anything happened to him, I would rather worry about his health, than the cost of the medical bills. This definetly came sooner than I had ever expected! Two weeks ago our pup had aweful issues with his belly. We had to bring him to the ER Vet then 5 days later back to the vet because he was vomiting over and over again. He had x-rays and our vet thought that he was going to need surgery. I was a mess, because my six month old puppy may need to have surgery, but not because the cost of the surgery was $2,800 on the low end! I knew I had Healthy Paws, I was not worried about the costs, I was worried about getting my baby boy better. The vet recommended they keep him overnight and try a more conservative route before surgery since he wasn't in much pain, so that is just what we did. The next day they took more x-rays and after fasting him and pumping him with fluids the linear object
