How many of us are prepared for the unexpected? Yet with the best of intentions (hopefully) we enter into pet ownership. Our experience with our dogs has proven that pet insurance is an absolute necessity. We have a 13 year old Boston Terrier (which was not insured, I must add) that was diagnosed with Addison's Disease 7 years ago and her yearly health care costs in excess of $1700 on top of basic vaccinations and well checks. You'd think we would have learned, but upon getting our labrador retriever, we intended to get insurance but unfortunately our puppy ate a ski hat and had to have emergency surgery to remove the yarn wrapped around his intestines to the tune of $3500. Needless to say, I researched pet insurance options ASAP and Healthy Paws offered the best coverage. Our new puppy was covered at 10 weeks and just recently ingested a rock and was hospitalized for 4 days and Healthy Paws addressed our claim within 48 hours of submission, covering 80% of the costly hospitalization and IV medication. If you don't have pet insurance, contact Healthy Paws today! You and your pet deserve the peace of mind. Well worth it!!!!
