    I signed up for Healthy Paws a few days before we received Seamus. As with all pet insurances there is a 15 day waiting period and if anything is found in the initial vet visit it most likely won't be covered in the future. On Seamus' first vet visit he had a left eye infection and giardia. So I called Healthy Paws and they said that most likely they would put an extra waiting period (like 6 months) on these two issues and if there are no more flare ups during those 6 months then they should be covered after that. We mostly got pet insurance to cover the big things and so we didn't have to worry about the cost of surgeries, etc. Healthy Paws costs us $61 per month and has no annual or lifetime cap on incident coverage (90% coverage with $250 deductible).

    So knock on wood we never have to actually use it but its nice to have the reassurance in case something goes wrong.

    We went with Trupanion.. we have a higher deductible ($250) but no limits and 90% coverage. I think what ever you go with you'll sleep a little better

    We could be looking at some hefty vet bills with Molly's knee's .. im VERY glad we got the insurance.

    We have insurance through the American Kennel Club and couldn't be happier. They just covered (almost all) of Oliver's TTA surgery. We've had no hassle with them and the turnaround on reimbursement is quick. We have their Essential Plan Plus and once we meet our deductible per term ($125) they cover 80% of just about everything. We pay $59 per month. On a side note, with out first bulldog we used VPI and had nothing BUT hassles. They never covered one single vet bill, except for when she was put down at age 12 1/2.
    Life is always an Adventure with Oliver!
