Is Pet Insurance Worth It?

Here’s how it was for one Healthy Paws customer: Mitchell, SD: “Our one-year-old golden retriever became very lethargic and seemed to be in pain. After numerous tests, they could not find anything serious. He came home with meds and slowly came back to normal. Healthy Paws handled my first-time claim within a week and a few days later I had a check. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend them.”
-Jay, Healthy Paws customer

Treatment: Pain

Total Vet Cost: $1,500

Healthy Paws reimbursed: $1,250

Happy Customers and Pets in South Dakota

"Healthy Paws has been there with me every step of the way and is always around to answer questions. I am one of the ‘lucky’ owners that has had an orthopedic nightmare of a dog, and Healthy Paws has been right by my side. I would never change to a different pet insurance and tell all my friends about how easy Healthy Paws has made a very stressful event."

- Betty F.

"Bear was diagnosed with a torn ACL and underwent TPLO surgery. I submitted a nearly $2,700 claim late in the morning, one day post-op. By early afternoon I received notification that the claim would be paid per my policy and I received the check the following week. I have only good things to say about Healthy Paws!"
