Pawp offers a $3,000 emergency fund to help cover unexpected, emergency vet bills. For $24 per month, you have access to the fund in case of an emergency. What’s the catch?

Approval is given by the Pawp vet’s discretion, who must deem your pet’s condition a true emergency requiring medical attention immediately. Learn more about how this emergency fund works and if it sounds helpful and reassuring for your family to have in your back pocket.

If not, a pet insurance policy bought prior to diagnosis may be able to ease the financial burden and help you focus your attention on your dog.
