    mrsautumn36 :  We also have Nationwide Whole Pet Wellness and Major Medical. We have a goldendoodle and australian shepherd and pay around $60 for each of them a month (so $120 total). We didn’t get it until we got the goldendoodle and I wholeheartedly regret not getting it sooner since our aussie has allergies that are now considered a preexisting condition and not covered. That said, EVERYTHING else is covered, except for boarding/food/grooming. 

    Just a couple weeks ago not only was Beau (aussie) at the vet for a UTI (an $800 bill), but 4 days later our doodle Buster ended up at the emergency clinic for 4 days due to having an obstruction in his stomach. We spent thousands of dollars, and now 90% of that is coming back to us. If we didn’t have the insurance, we would’ve had to wipe clean the savings we’ve been working on for when our baby gets here in November and things would’ve been tight. I cannot recommend pet insurance enough.

    Paying for health insurance for your pet is the responsible thing to do, particuarly because your pet may develop health problems as it ages. We pay around $50 a month with Healthy Paws, which covers 90% of medical expenses, including medication and they’re super easy to work with. We’ve never had an issue with getting our claims processed. Our dog (who is 10.5 years old now) was diagnosed with a heart condition a year ago. Our most recent vet visit came up to about 9K. If we had not had Healthy Paws, out pet would’ve passed because we wouldn’t have been able to pay that much for her needed treatment.
