Quite unexpectedly I ended up rescuing my little Ziggy in September who was destined for certain euthanization because he tested positive for heart worms. A couple of weeks later, I got an email from PetFoodDirect.com advertising the relatively new HealthyPaws insurance. Many years ago, an experience with pet insurance was horrendous, so I was wary, but on a whim I decided to obtain a quote, which I found to be reasonable. After talking with a representative, who was upfront and honest about coverage and pre-existing conditions for Ziggy and my other dog, Foxie, I decided to give it a try. And I am SO glad I did! Ziggy developed a lump above his elbow only about 2 months later, and it was diagnosed as mast cell cancer. Jen from HealthyPaws has been absolutely wonderful and answered any and all of my questions. I was assured that his care and treatment - whatever that would be - would be covered. Today, 1/03/11, less than 3 weeks following the initial discovery, I have received reimbursement for all expenses at the 80% rate I opted for when I signed up. I can't say enough good about this company! Best of all? The prognosis is great for Ziggy! I am so very glad I can consider only Ziggy's well-being and not finances - thanks to HealthyPaws!
