Hopefully this is the right forum section to post this:
Our dog is very energetic and high-strung and I've been considering insurance for her.
I got a couple of quotes online and so far Healthy Paws seems the best since we are on a budget. But I read some not so good reviews on them, does anyone have a recommendation for other options?

I just signed up for Trupanion. They came recommended by a few people so I thought I would give them a try. I haven't used it yet, we are still in our waiting period. i liked that they do let you choose your deductible which does affect the price.

Thanks irvol. That is the one plan I looked into to compare, and the prices were higher than HealthyPaws for less coverage.

I have Healthy Paws insurance. I however have not had to put in a claim so can't really comment. I think you will often find good and bad comments for almost anything depending on people's experience.

I have Healthy Paws insurance as well. I feel I get the most bang for my buck with them and have never had a problem. I have filed one claim and had no issues.

Thank you both.
I have a question for you. Some of the bad reviews I've read about them said they raise the rates pretty severely over time. Have either of you been with them for a couple years and noticed this?

The rates do go up, but I'm pretty sure most of them do go up yearly (although I'm not totally sure). I have had them for about 3 years, and I want to say mine has gone up from about $38/month to $45/month - and my dog is only 4.

Thanks again. I think I will go with them. I appreciate the info.

No problem. I think they are a good choice. For me, it was a toss up between them and PetPlan. But Healthypaws was cheaper for the same (or better) coverage.

Good luck!

Awesome!

I think they warn you when you sign up, but has your dog had a physical exam in the past 12 months? If not, they need one during the waiting period or it could void your policy.

Thanks! Yes, she had a vet exam about a month ago so we're good to go. Yesterday I had the vet fax over her medical records to them too.
