Healthy Paws Pet Insurance

As most of you know
we lost Benny in October. 
We learned a huge lesson since we are still paying his cancer
treatment bills.
I would never change one thing.
You guys (Blog and Facebook friends) helped us TREMENDOUSLY
What I learned......
Is what I learned.
My sick eye,
My sick belly
My poopy...
Thank you Healthy Paws
you will be my best friend forever.
We are both covered.
Lily & Edward


  1. We think about him also. We are also so happy Edward has found his forever home. Insurance is good.

  2. That sounds like a great idea, especially considering the cost of vet care. We still think about Benny lots, can't imagine how much you do.

  3. Yes, are so right about having insurance! This is a great reminder for everyone.
    *high paws* to you and Edward,

  4. We would never be without it. It might be a bit of a gamble but truthfully it is a necessity. Glad you both are covered. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Great advice. Truffles is the first cat I've ever adopted young enough for insurance to be an option so it's definitely something I'm looking into!

  6. You might be surprised at how often we think of Benny. I think he touched the hearts of many. What a smile he had! Yes, insurance is a good thing.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. Lily we will never ever forget your Benny and his brave fight!!
    Sounds like you and Edward have good coverage.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. We have never heard of this brand of insurance. We will look at it.. Most of them are too expensive to be worthwhile. BUTT you are RIGHT... if it has already covered so many thingys.

    1. If you are 5 and under it's less. We get our refunds in under 12 days. Whoooa

  9. I don't think we'll ever forget Benny. He was such a cool dude.
    Our mom thinks we should look into this insurance thing. Thanks for the tip.
    Play bows,

  10. We will never forget brave Benny. We are glad you have insurance to help with your medical costs. We don't have insurance but we have a vet who is a good family friend, so it is like having a different kind of insurance!

  11. Lily, I miss him too. And you're right to have an insurance is very impawtant, even when we have to pay a rentention, it's better to have such a thingy.

  12. We use to have it but found they seemed to keep covering less and less each time we used it (which wasn't very often) in the end it was costing more than the vet bills and they wouldn't cover any of Reilly's allergy stuff

  13. You can never have too much insurance!

  14. Lucky you two. Because my deformity in my legs showed up in puppyhood Lee could not get insurance on me. And we also found out a lot of veterinary physician in Cincinnati don't take insurance. I miss your Benny also.
    Thanks for being a friend

    We did not get one treat from Healthy Paws for doing this post

  16. We miss Benny too! Was such a beautiful little boy and is dearly missed I am certain!

    Have a great week!

  17. We learned too and got insurance for Dolly last year. We are not happy with it, Pet Plan, and are looking for something better. Thanks for sharing. Love Dolly Pees: I wish I could have known you Benny!

  18. We miss Benny too, Lily. Insurance is a good thing to have!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  19. We all miss Benny too.Whenever we think of Thunder, Benny comes to mind. Their situations occurred about the same time and were so very similar. We will have to check out Healthy Paws - Mom is always looking for something like that.

  20. Hmm I will have to check Health Paws Insurance out.

    Aroo to you,

  21. You never do know when you might need the insurance. We will check them out. We think of Benny often

  22. We miss Benny too and will always.

    Thank you for this post on insurance

  23. I miss Benny. That is very good advice and thank you both for that.

    Loveys Sasha

  24. You need to have insurance, both for animals and peeps. Have a nice day.

  25. We miss your Benny too Lily.....we're very glad you and Edward have insurance though - it's nice to know that whatever happens you guys are COVERED!

    Hugs, Sammy

  26. Glad coverage is working for you. We haven't found a plan that would work with our situation, but we are always open to it.

  27. Bless Benny and his brave fight..we have no pet insurance as when we looked into it with four cats and two dogs all older the insurance would pay for a holiday house!! it was really expensive..unless you had a young animal etc and there was no benefit from having multiple pets..we would just find the money somehow if we needed it..they need to look more closely at it here in Australia :) hugs to you both Fozziemum xx

  28. I'm glad you had insurance. I waited too long and right now can't swing it. But I will sure keep it in mind for future pets!

  29. Excellent job on the insurance! Tallulah and Petunia are covered by Petplan. Isabelle could be covered but her pre-existing conditions would be excluded. A big thing to know about pet insurance is that pre-existing conditions are rarely covered. You need to have the policy underwritten immediately after buying which for us meant sending in all vet records for the last two years. The underwriters will determine what is covered and what is excluded. Sometimes it's life, sometimes it's for a year or two. If you aren't happy with the underwriting, you can usually cancel the policy without penalty.
    Just like with human insurance, policies and companies are different. The humans need to do a lot of homework before picking one.

  30. The peeps have been talking about insurance for ages. They should get their buts into gear and just get some!

  31. that is a good idea Lily,Edward and Mum,we miss Benny too,xx Speedy
