10/10   Money Well Spent, 7/22/2014

Reviewed By: Margaret Cain, Recommend: Y

If you do nothing else as a dog owner, purchase PetPlan pet insurance for your dog. I am a proud owner of a beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. My dog, Sadie, recently underwent emergency abdominal surgery for an obstruction. Her surgical costs topped over $4,000, but PetPlan paid for $3,600 of it. It was an incredible relief not to have to worry at the time whether I could afford life-saving measures for my dog. PetPlan was a life saver--literally and not just in emergencies. Prior to gettiing Sadie, I researched several pet insurance companies because I knew that Cavaliers were prone to a heart condition. PetPlan is the only pet insurance company I know that covers congenital defects and conditions to specific breeds. My dog, Sadie, now over 7 years old recently developed early stages of the condition which require expensive tests and daily medications. PetPlan has covered a majority of these expenses and in a very timely manner. I cannot recommend them enough!

7/10   Thorough, timely procedure of claims., 7/13/2014

Reviewed By: Katharine Lundy, Recommend: Y

I adopted a cat from the Oregon Humane Society. One week later he developed diarrhea. This continued for 2 weeks and was thought to be due from stress of moving and taking a series of antibiotics for another condition.
I had to take him to a vet on the 4th of July for a worsened
condition.
Because of the holiday, the vet bill was expensive. Pet plan
covered the entire claim. I filed the claim incorrectly, but set it straight. It only took a week to process.

10/10   Invaluable, fast,reliable and honest insurance, 7/10/2014

Reviewed By: Leonel Saavedra, Recommend: Y

We brought Kimi, a lovely mixed breed Chihuahua, into our home 8 years ago. At age 6, she was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus and for the past 2 years she has been to the animal clinic in several occasions, when her illness was out of control and even underwent eye surgery, when she got cataracts due to her diabetes. Thanks to Pet Plan, we have been able to provide the best care for our pet and in every occasion Pet Plan has been there for us. If not for them, we would not have been able to provide the best care for this beloved member of our family. Thanks so much Pet Plan, for being there for Kimi and for us.

10/10   Outstanding , 7/9/2014

Reviewed By: Crystal Leberto Koller, Recommend: Y

My Great Dane, Cuco was diagnosed with DCM at the age of 2. I was told by the vet that most dogs don't live past a year with this heart diseases but with the help of my vet and Petplan I was able to afford to give Cuco the best care possible. Petplan covered his visits to the cardiologist and his monthly medications. Cuco survived 4&1/2 years with DCM only to pass away from Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) at the age of 6&1/2. Even when he was diagnosed with cancer Petplan was very helpful and willing to cover his leg amputation or limb sparing procedure which allowed me to pick the best option for him. Unfortunately Cuco's cancer spread quicker then expected and he passed away right after surgery. I loved Cuco very much. He was a big part of my family and I miss him more every day. Petplan allowed me to give him the best quality of life without breaking the bank. I will use Petplan again with my next dog and always recommend them when people ask.

10/10   worth every dollar, helpful, accomadating, 7/9/2014

Reviewed By: Sonya, Recommend: Y

I recently enrolled my 4 year old bluenose pitbull with PetsPlusUs. The service has been amazing and the staff have been very accommodating. My dog somehow managed to tear her ACL ligament on her right knee. The expenses for the surgery and post-care medications were over $3000.00 . PetsPlusUS covered and paid the veterinary hospital directly and I had to pay the remainder. Apporximately 2 months later, my dog tore her ACL ligament in her other knee, that surgery and post-care cost once again over $3000.00 . Once again, PetsPlusUS paid the veterinary hospital directly and I paid the remainder.

The staff have always been helpful and assist in any way possible. I recommend this insurance company to everyone and all my family/friends with pets.

10/10   Delivered as promised, easy, fast, polite,
$3,800 reimbursement paid in just 2 weeks from our claim submission, on a $250 Silver plan ($200 deductible), for ACL surgery (TTA) on our dog's second hind knee, which some/many (most?) other pet insurance plans won't cover if the other leg has been previously repaired.

9/10   Go Pet Plan is good dog insurance....so far,
September 2009 I submitted a claim for my 9 month old dog who was attacked by another dog. After submitting the claim it took them 2 wks. to add it to their system (a little slow if you ask me.) I had to call them and move it along. Their call system is decent. I had to call again and there was a delay but ultimately they paid the $550 bill. I only had a $50 deductible. I sent in another claim this month… read more

Who knew that our rescue puppy "Libby" (who is so precious to us) would turn out to be such an ill little thing?

8/10   CCL surgery for our 1 1/2 year old dog,
Willie is a 2 year old lab/boxer mix. When he turned a year old, I decided to get insurance for him because I figured he would hurt himself running/chasing/and playing with other dogs since he doesn't seem to care much for his well being. PetPlan had pretty good rates for him, so I chose them. 6 months later, he tore his CCL while catching a frisbee. I was worried that PetPlan would not cover this injury… read more

10/10   Fabulous Customer Service!!!,
I can't recommend PetPlan USA enough! I am a first-time dog owner of an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Before we purchased Brooklyn, I did a lot of research on insurance companies as I had read that with toy breeds there can be congenital defects. My husband thought I was crazy to spend money on pet insurance. Well, as luck would have it, within less than a year, I was told by my vet that… read more
