Not worth the money

I recently had a cat, Lightning, pass away from cancer which was totally devistating to me. My vet, witnessing my sorrow from my beloved pet, found a kitten in front of McDonalds. He had a case of diarrhea so they nursed him to health and gave him to me. When I got braden he was so tiny (5 weeks old) and much too small to insure. But when he hit the mark I purchased Pets Best insurance to cover him. Well at about 11 weeks he I noticed that he had just stopped eating and seemed very lethargic. When he fell asleep in his food bowl I rushed him to emergency where they asked about his health history. The only thing that he ever had was that bout with diarrhea, but living your first few weeks at McDonalds can do that to humans. They determined that he had dehydration because he wasn't eating and drinking and sent us on our way. The next day he seemed better that morning but in the evening he began having horrible tremors. I rushed him back to emergency where they again determined that he must just be dehydrated and gave him more fluids. The next day I took him to his vet and she did a complete blood pannel on him and determined that his blood sugar was 30!! That explained the shaking, lethargy, lack of interest in food which were his symptoms and original complaint. Well Pets Best ordered medical records eventhough they had the complete invoices and payment records which is what they claimed is all that they needed. Well, they saw that he had diarrhea when he was found and denied

Spend a dollar and save several dollars!

Our 3 yr old lab Grace ate a small dollup of insecticide. That little bit of poison almost cost Grace her life and us, $4000k in vet bills! If we had had pet insurance we would have faired a lot better finacially. Now we know.

Pleased

I have used ASPCA on several occasions now but this last occasion showed me that the coverage I have for my pug, Bugsy is excellent. I never thought I would get such good results such as quick service and response. I am so glad for ASPCA and so is Bugsy.

Max, linus amd Nellie+

I decided to get pet insurance after adopting my dog Max for from mixed up mutts. I never had a dog and was always thinking about getting it for my cat but never did. Then when I adopted Nellie a 5 week old puppy. So, I did an internet search for pet insurance companies and compared plans and rates before deciding to go with ASPCA Health Insurance. Im Oct 2010 nellie ate a rock and boy did the insurance help defray some of the cost. I've already saved more than I paid in premiums for a year. So, I would say everyone should get health insurance for their dogs

Very satisfied

On a whim (after seeing how much family members have spent on vet bills) I decided to get pet insurance. The rate isn't too bad, not even $50 a month. 8 months after getting it my dog had a partial bowel obstruction and was in the animal ER for nearly 3 days. Just over $2,000 later I got my dog back (luckily they were able to flush it and he didn't need surgery). It took the animal hospital longer to get the vet to sign the claim form (since I guess that hospital wasn't his normal place to work so they had to track him down) than it took trupanion to process and mail me a check. The pet insurance literally just paid itself off for the next 40 months, well worth it IMO.

Satisfied with service and rates

We researched pet insurance on this website and eventually chose to go with Embrace based on the reviews and price. We bought accident insurance for our puppy as soon as she was old enough and had to make claims for a sprained ankle and illness in the past six months. The claim refunds were recieved within a month and the customer service on the phone was better than I expect (of course I usually deal with horrible companies like the cable and phone company). Seems like a good company so far so I'd recommend them

Economical coverage for my cat

I have a 15 year old cat that has chronic kidney failure. I filed a claim for more than $1,000 and they paid the claim within one week. They paid 80% after the deductible and paid in accordance with the contract. I am very happy with the timeliness and professionalism of Pets Best Insurance. Also, the premium was very reasonable.

Thank God for Trupanion

We have had many dogs over the years and never had insurance for them. So when I was approached by my vet to get insurance for my new pup, a Bassett Hound cross, I had a double take. For some unknown reason I took the insurance. Well, it has paid for itself already, Charlie has been to the hospital twice. The first for something he got into, the second was he had a reaction to the medication his vet ordered for him. The 3 day stay in the hospital quickly added up. But, I felt relieved that I good give him the best possible care that he deserved. Trupanion is quick to respond, and cares about our pets. I reccomend them to anyone looking for the best for their pet.

Wow, that was fast!

I had my first claim (for a wellness visit). I cannot believe how quickly I was able to submit the claim, and how quickly I received notice that it was issued! I feel very comforted at having this insurance for my buddy.

Best company ever!!!

Healthy Paws is the best! I got pet insurance just as a 'just in case' something might happen. What I didn't know is that my hairless dog would turn out to be allergic to everything and need allergy testing, special medication and allergy shots. I wondered what would happen, but everyone was nice. They wanted to know first how Eddie was doing then they explained how the insurance would work, then they mailed me the reimbursement. Eddie is now 6 months old and is a frequent flyer at the vet because of his allergies, but the people at Healthy Paws are still just as nice and concerned as the first time. You have normal expected out of pocket expenses when you own a pet, but the unexpected can really put a dent in your wallet. It is very nice to have a great company like this to help out! The other thing I liked is it isn't hard to understand their plan.
