My husband and I recently adopted a 9-month-old Yorkiepoo named Bailey - our first dog. Our vet strongly advised us to get pet insurance. I did a bunch of research and wound up using Healthy Paws. It's turned out to be a great decision!
Just a week after the 15-day waiting period had expired, Bailey became ill with a fever and GI distress that caused severe vomiting and diarrhea. With an 8-pound dog, the inability to keep food down is pretty serious! She's on the mend now, thank heaven, but the whole ordeal involved 2 trips to the vet (one an emergency), 3 nights there, a ton of tests, several prescriptions, etc. Needless to say, it was expensive.
Even after meeting our deductible and paying for the doctor's examination fees (which we knew about up front), the Healthy Paws plan covered a significant amount of the total. It's such a relief to know that, where Bailey's concerned, we have one less thing to worry about!
I would recommend Healthy Paws without hesitation to anyone looking for pet insurance - they're terrific!
