    Is it worth it? I've always hesitated, can someone share some information about this?

    I have healthy paws. 90% payout and 250$ deductible. They have been fabulous. Just yesterday I got a claim processed in less than 5 minutes. They send the checks very fast as well. I do agree that it is more beneficial if you get it while your dog is young since most of the companies will not cover pre-existing conditions. Some do not cover the cost of the vet visit and most do not cover preventative stuff like booster shots.

    Example of a pre-existing condition: you mention your dog has been itching at his ears. Weeks or months later you go back in and your dog is diagnosed with an ear infection. This will most likely be considered a pre-existing condition. Healthy paws has been great and honestly has paid me or for a lot of stuff I thought would be considered pre-existing.

    After Angel and Jackson's parvo incident I signed up for pet insurance. Surprisingly, I get a discount thru pet first because of where I work and the mack daddy plan, $100 dollar deductible, and covers 90% after that, is $96 a month. Their stent as inpatients couldn't have came at a worse time, right after Christmas, my husband got a DUI <-you've never seen anger like mine this night, he hasn't had a drink since - , my husband wrecked and totalled his truck - he actually wasn't drinking - broke his wrist and was on "light duty" he's a diesel mechanic at a performance shop, so light duty means no money! $4,000 dollars in vet bills, plus all our other bills, a new truck, AND a new windshield for my car later, we're broke and getting creative with Ramen noodles for every meal! Haha if we would've had pet insurance we would've at least had money for the cup'o'noodles with the corn and pea's! Lol
    We don't have any credit cards, but if we did, I would've burned the plastic off them at the vet this past month!

    We have VPI - honestly its paid way more than what I've paid in premium - so I'm happy with that. While I don't rely on it, its nice to get something back, even if its not the full amount. We also in addition to that have a credit card solely for Tyson. Any & everything for him goes on it...

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
