First pet claim - ever

Out of 10

Along with all of the accpeted techniques of training a dog (crating, puppy classes, hollistic foods, etc.), buying pet insurance was just not something anyone we knew did back in the 70's and 80's when I grew up. However, veterinary costs weren't what they were back then either. So, I have a family of my own and we put in our reservation with the breeder and our "little boy" was born on Halloween, last year. Our breeder gave us tons of material to read about training, health, etc., etc. Thanks to the internet, I read up on the costs of animal jaw dropped. I knew, right away, that if I could find an insurer who charged reasonable premiums for major medical coverage - I would buy it. All of the great review for Healthy Paws drew me to read about them first. It was hard because my employer has entitled me to a discount with another popular insurer. However, there was something more personal with this carrier. I appreciate their mission and I felt that their coverage was excellent for the premium charged. Last week, our pup (Brady) began throwing up repeatedly. My wife was becomming very concerned and so she brought him to the veterinary hospital. Sure enough, he had a foreign object in his system (later, it looked to be a Brazil nut in its' shell). They gave him fluid therapy, x-rays and something to help him pass the object (thank goodness - no surgery was suggested at that point). Bottom line: He passed it. So, I submitted the claim to Healthy Paw
