We decided to adopt TWO older Golden Retrievers that had been together their whole lives and were 8 & 10 yrs old and given up to the Humane Society. When we looked into insurance for older dogs we found that Healthy Paws not only would cover them but had the best plan. Even though there were some pre-existing conditions that understandable couldn't be covered, and our 8 yr. male died of cancer after only 4 mos., we have been very well covered for the subsequent issues that have developed with the older female. It has made caring for aging and older adopted pet so much more possible. We have NO concern or hesitation in taking her into her doctor. It has helped her to have a healthy, happy second life.
