Healthy Paws top-rated insurance plan covers accidents, illnesses, cancer, emergencies, genetic and hereditary conditions. Their plans also offer holistic and alternative care treatment options.

What Does Healthy Paws Offer English Bulldogs?
Healthy Paws is the only English Bulldog insurance company to offer Lifetime Hip Dysplasia coverage for dogs enrolled before the age of 6. Because 8/10 English Bulldogs will suffer from Hip Dysplasia, a plan which covers this condition for life is a tremendous benefit.
Healthy Paws also allows its members to choose any licensed veterinarian. Many Bulldog owners prefer a veterinarian who specializes in issues related to their dog and this flexibility allows members to find the best fit for their dog. Healthy Paws also lets its members choose the best Emergency hospital to trust with urgent care.
All Healthy Paws plans reimburse based on the actual veterinary bill. This may not seem like a benefit until you take into consideration other insurance companies who pay based on benefit schedules or predetermined amounts, which may lower your reimbursement amounts.
English Bulldogs often require alternative care. Alternative care treatments include chiropractic adjustments, hydrotherapy (therapeutic swimming for injury rehabilitation), deep tissue massage and more. While these treatments may seem unnecessary, they are often required just to maintain overall health or to recover from an injury, illness or accident, which Bulldogs commonly have.
