I insured our new dog, Rufus, who we adopted from a local shelter, about a month after we got him. A friend recommended Healthy Paws and I was skeptical at first - would it be worth the monthly cost?
Well, after extensive research comparing Healthy Paws' prices and plans to other companies, I decided Healthy Paws offered the best coverage for the best rate (AND they give back to homeless pets, which is important to me). Still unsure if the insurance would really pay off, I decided to give it a go.
Now a couple months later, I am confident enrolling Rufus with Healthy Paws was the right decision, and we will remain a customer for life! The customer service is fantastic, the claim forms are easy to fill out and submit, and everything is handled in a timely fashion - including reimbursement.
One great perk is that the deductible is annual - not per incident. Our lovely dog has managed to already hit that deductible in the short time we've had him, and now we'll only be responsible for 10 percent of his healthcare costs for the rest of 2011.
I can't say enough great things about Healthy Paws - I highly recommend the company, and I highly recommend your investment in pet insurance! It provides great peace of mind to know your pet will always be able to receive the medical care they need without maxing out your credit cards.
