10/10   So glad I have Petplan Insurance!!!, 2/1/2016

Reviewed By: Susan Markenstein, Recommend: Y

I love my little dog Diego (well, he's 44 pounds -- not so little). When he needs medical treatment, it's upsetting enough without having to worry about how I might pay for it. He's 8 years old and I have had insurance through Petplan for the last 7 years. He's had a few things addressed over time, but recently he needed to have surgery to remove a tumor. Petplan processed the claim immediately and reimbursed for almost the full cost of the procedure. It was so upsetting, I could not have imagined having to worry about how to pay for it as well. Highly recommend to anyone with a pet.

9/10   Thank you Petplan, 1/28/2016

Reviewed By: David, Recommend: Y

I have had Petplan for over 7 years now and have been very happy with them. They are expensive at first glance, but if you shop around, and when you compare apples to apples, their coverage is worth the upfront costs. I most recently needed to use the insurance for surgery of a torn ligament in my dogs knee. This surgery was very expensive, but was covered completely with my plan (minus the $100 deductible). Additionally, I found the customer service reps I worked with courteous and extremely helpful, in particular Justin W. He took care of me from the beginning and followed up with me like a true pro. I highly recommend Petplan.

10/10   Pet plan is incredible, 1/23/2016

Reviewed By: Kimberly Strosnider, Recommend: Y

I have had pet plan for 6 years and never had to use it until July of 2015 . My 8 yr old puggle was diagnosed with ketoacidosis diabetes and pancreatitis. The first claim I made was handled so quickly they reimbursed me within 2 weeks. That claim was $4500. He continued needing treatment and monitoring every 2 weeks. Then in September he developed cataracts from the diabetes and went totally blind. He had cataract surgery and could see immediately again that night. Cost of surgery and testing about $5800. 2 weeks after cataract removal he developed secondary gluacoma and back to the hospital again, could not get pressures under control and he required endolaser surgery and spent a total ofb12 days in the hospital while specialist conferred how to treat him as he was having complications. Long story but today my dog can see, play ball and his well on his way to recovery, was a very long road but one we could afford thanks to pet plan. Fortunately our policy renewed in the middle of all of this has everything with his eyes cost right around $ 19,000. We never could have afforded the best treatment for our precious Chauncey , I will forever tell people I meet if you love your pets don't go without pet insurance. The first claim paid me back more than I had paid in premiums in 6 years. I also pay for coverage for my other dog and my daughters 3 dogs. Wouldn't gonwithout it! My daughters husky also has diabetes and needs constant treatment. If you love your pets I can't say enough good things about Pet Plan! Also subsequent claims after first were handled in a weeks time incredible, better than people health insurance.

9/10   PetPlan gives us peace of mind to protect our pet, 1/23/2016

Reviewed By: Christopher, Recommend: Y

My dog stopped eating and and was losing weight and we rushed him to ER. He was found to have Intussusception due to Sarcoma of the bowel. That night he had to go to OR or he wasn't going to make it. His surgeon removed 10 inches of bowel and reconnected him and sampled his lymph nodes. Fortunately, his cancer had not spread. I would have paid any amount of money to save my dog. His bills totaled over $6000. I had gotten pet insurance when he turned 4 and I am so glad I did. PetPlan was wonderful about handling his claim and they processed his claim within 7 days.

10/10   Pet Plan is the Peace of Mind Plan, 1/15/2016

Reviewed By: James Weisser, Recommend: Y

We were encouraged to buy a premium when we adopted our Lab from Labs4rescue. We scoffed at the idea since we had never done so for previous pets. As it turns out, it was useful advice. Recently, our dog had a front leg amputation due to bone cancer. This surgery (about $5,000) is being followed up by six doses of chemo therapy (about $670 each). Pet Plan is providing coverage in a timely manner. I was just informed by the Pet Plan rep that a check was just mailed out for 80% of the cost of the surgery.

Our dog is happy and free from pain. Dogs, unlike most humans are like golfers: they play the ball from where it lies. He is getting used to being a three-legged dog and it doesn't seem to dampen his spirit at all. For many people the burden of such expensive procedures would have them putting their dog down. Red Hook dog rescue is raising funds right now for a dog that was given up to a shelter to be euthanized because the owners could not afford chemo therapy to treat his mast cell tumor. I made a donation to Max's treatments as away of paying forward the good fortune that Pet Plan has mad possible for us.

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 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

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
