10/10   Lifesaver!
We have been with Petfirst going on 11 years now and I have to say its the best decision we ever made. They are prompt and courteous at all times, including claim handling. Its been a pleasure to have them as our pet insurance carrier and allowing us the piece of mind all these years!

10/10   Back surgery gets doxie back on her feet.
In July, my mini Doxie needed emergency back surgery. Embrace was with us from the initial emergency /after hours vet through the surgery and hospital stay. They continued to cover her extensive rehab. Claims were quickly paid, They stayed in contact via email. Thankfully, my furbaby, Zuzu is expected to make a full recovery. I definitely would recommend them.

9/10   Amazing coverage for older dachshund
My active and healthy 8 year old dachshund gave me the scare of my life recently when she began wobbling on her hind legs and dragging her back paws after what seemed like a fairly minor fall two days before. Terrified, I went to my vet and they confirmed my fears: Doodle needed surgery, as she had herniated a disk. I recently moved to the Bay Area and was shocked at the expense of the surgery, but needed to do what was best for my pup. Yesterday, about a month after her surgery and two weeks after submitting my claim, I received a check in the mail for $5,090 out of the total cost of around $5,600! (This is with a $600 deductible, by the way.) When I signed up for Petplan, I was surprised at how expensive pet insurance for an older dachshund was; now, I am even more surprised to see that it was actually worth it. I will be sticking with Petplan for the rest of Doodle's life and for any other pooch that might come into my life after her.

1/10   Fraud
Ripoff. Didn't even look at my pet's mouth. I went in for a free exam for a dental cleaning and when I signed up for the wellness plan I was told I wasn't entitled to the free exam. What a load of crap! Thank goodness I came to my senses and took my dog to a real vet hospital and had the work done. All the cardiac workup Banfield insisted my dog needed was not necessary and my dog came through the procedure just fine. In fact there were complications during surgery that Banfield I am sure would not have been able to handle and God only knows what they would have done to my dog. I was not even informed of my right to cancel the contract which is a law in the state of Illinois.

10/10   Great Company!
I purchased pet insurance for Maddie, my miniature wire haired dachshund, as soon as I brought her home. I had never had this kind of insurance for any pets before, but thought it might be a good idea. I have two dogs...both covered by Pet Plan. My other pet, a Norwich Terrier, a couple of years younger than Maddie is also covered by Petplan. Maddie seems to have needed the coverage from the start. Although basically pretty healthy, somehow we've had an incident every year. At three years old she lost her eyesight due to S.A.R.D. and became immediately totally blind. Recently I was away and Maddie was being cared for in Brooklyn when she had a serious stomach problem that caused vomiting, heavy breathing, and overall stress. Her caretakers took her to the emergency vet where she got immediate attention. I just received a check from PetPlan for $495. I am so impressed with their quick and easy procedure for submitting a claim and receiving reimbursement. They are an extremely reliable company. My other dog has never had an incident, but I can be comfortable knowing that if something goes wrong I can focus on the pet and not on the bill. Thank you, Petplan!

1/10   Fraud. Illegal business practices.
Brought pet in for free exam for dental cleaning. "Conned" into Wellness Plan which negated free exam. Brochure of plan indicated full anesthetic work up but was charged for x-ray of chest for possible heart murmur, additional charge for outside specialist to read x-Ray and then wanted another $324.00 for a cardiac. Up to this point no one even looked at my pet's mouth. Also, you can't read the contract until you sign something on a computer monitor and they don't inform you of your right to cancel which is an Illinois law on any installment contract. I took her to a "real" vet hospital, she didn't need the echo; had more extensive work than I believe they could have handled anyway. I would stay away from this place.
