This was the best decision that we have ever made! We purchased this insurance when our dog was 3 months old. Who would have thought at 17 months old that she would need surgery to repair a torn ACL on her left knee. She fell on some stairs. When the vet indicated that the cost of the surgery would between $3000 and $4000 dollars. It was reassuring to know that we could get her the surgery and that she wouldn't have to suffer a life time of pain because we couldn't afford it. We were only responsible for $100 deductible and 10% of the actual cost of the surgery. Following her surgery I submitted the claim forms and had the reimbursement check in less than a week. I had a lot of questions and they were so wonderful and caring. We did a lot of research in the different insurance companies before choosing Health Paws, and I am so glad we made the right decision. I have even recommended Health Paws to the animal hospital for other interested pet parents!
