This was my first experience with pet insurance and after research I got Healthy Paws for my ~18 month old rescue dog at the suggestion of our groomer. She said that young pit mixes as active as our Ted could run the risk of an ACL.
So in my mind I did the math and was like hey, the premiums for about 10 years may cover an ACL but lord only knows if I would have the $$ at the time of any injury.
Well, who would ever image a dog, now 3ish, would have a brain cyst. He started having balance issues, and after our vet ruled out inner ear infection it was off to the neurologist for an exam, then an MRI and finally, thanks to heathly paws, we decided to try the brain surgery.
Ted is re-cooperating well and health paws processed all the claims we submitted in less than 48 hours from when we submitted them. Note: this event cost was about $12,000 and healthy paws paid almost $9,500.
I'll never have any other pet, dog or cat, without healthy paws.
P.S. the people are super nice too. They ask how Ted is doing when you call and they even send follow up emails
P.S.S if you need a specialist in the Philadelphia area we used CARES in Langhorne and they were excellent
