For a flat $19/month no matter what your pet’s age, breed, or medical history this New York-based pet startup gives you: 24/7 unlimited access to vets, $3,000/year for a vet emergency, and protection for up to 6 pets.

How can this be so? launched its website back in 2019 with a goal to become a trusted adviser to pet owners.  With its digital health clinic available 24/7 to assist you with medical questions and $3,000 a year to help with vet emergencies, you may wonder why you would need pet insurance if you have a healthy dog.

Acme Canine was asked to test this app and found it wonderful.  We went to the website,, and clicked on the link to TALK TO A VET and typed in that our dog, Penny, had gotten into some coffee pods.  Unlike the poison control center which makes you wait hours for an answer, the Pawp veterinarian responded quickly with options to help Penny out.  They told us she didn’t eat enough coffee to seek medical attention but that she would have diarrhea so be prepared for that.  In the end, they told us to remain calm and give Penny a big hug.

They were personal and friendly…You couldn’t help liking them.

What’s included for $19/month

In addition to medical assistance, you can chat with the Pawp vets about behavioral questions, age-related / life stage changes, nutrition, dental, preventive health… pretty much anything you could ask a vet in-person.  If you prefer not to talk with the Pawp vets, there are hundreds of pet-related articles on their blog to help answer pet-related questions from lifestyle to nutrition.

Pawp also sends you a weekly newsletter with great articles on exercise, nutrition, and more.  There’s even a section titled STAY BUSY which gives you daily tasks to improve your pet knowledge.

Final thought

In today’s world, it is difficult to find a company that is genuine about helping pet owners understand and care for their pets.  For this reason along with the wealth of information on their website for pet owners and the great service they offer when you need to talk with a vet, Acme Canine gives 5 paws up and is including them on the Acme Approved Products page.
