Canine Journal, a lifestyle site known for being the authority on “all things dog,” has performed their 2017 audit of pet insurance companies, and ranked Healthy Paws Pet Insurance as the “Best Dog Insurance” provider.  The site singled out Healthy Paws for featuring reimbursements of up to 90% of veterinary costs with no annual or lifetime caps on payouts, great customer service, and reasonable premium prices.

Canine Journal performs in-depth research to evaluate companies, including combing through user reviews, customer feedback and social media mentions and comments. They found Healthy Paws ranked high on customer service, affordability, easy-to-understand plan coverage and unlimited annual and lifetime payouts. Canine Journal explains that Healthy Paws edged out the competition when they factored in that every free pet insurance quote results in a donation toward a homeless pet’s medical care.

“Our review of the industry this year demonstrated that Healthy Paws currently offers the best pet insurance policy with unlimited lifetime benefits and paperless claims,” says Michelle Schenker of “Plus, they have an annual deductible rather than a per condition deductible, which means increased claim payouts if the pet has multiple conditions during the year.”

“Canine Journal has been a key partner in spreading the good news about Healthy Paws,” says Rob Jackson, CEO of Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. “Our passion for dogs and cats drives us to wow pet parents every day with extraordinary service, an easy-to-use app and delivery on our promises. To be recognized for it feels pretty great!”
