10/10   Two paws up!, 12/21/2014

Reviewed By: Mary Carroll, Recommend: Y

Years ago, when our Boston Terrier became ill, we learned the hard way that pet insurance was very good to have. Unfortunately, we didnít have it! Since we never wanted to be in that position again, we started shopping around and settled on Petplan based on a recommendation from our Vetís office. In the beginning we were concerned about the monthly cost, because like every insurance plan, youíre paying for something you may never need or hope you will never need. But when something does happen, you realize how grateful you are that you made the investment.

When our dog recently ended up in the hospital again, we were told it would be for a day or two. Unfortunately, his conditioned worsened and a day or two became a week. Every day we went to visit, we were given an update on his condition and the quickly escalating costs of his hospital stay. Happily, we were able to bring our dog home in good condition and heís been feeling better every day.

When it came time to file a claim with Petplan, the process was painless. When we had questions, The Petplan Happiness Managers (who always asked about our petís condition first) were friendly, professional and always available to help.

When the reimbursement check arrived, we were shocked (in a good way). It surpassed all our expectations. Petplan was true to its policy, no hidden exceptions.

If youíre considering pet insurance, we highly recommend Petplan.

10/10   Thank goodness for Petplan!, 12/18/2014

Reviewed By: Vivian Badalamenti, Recommend: Y

Petplan has not disappointed me, they have fulfilled their promises and made it so much easier for me when it comes to caring for my Irish Setter boy who has had medical issues.

I had a different insurance some years back that only paid out well on things that would be considered a 'one off', they didn't pay out well for life long illnesses, so I was happy when Petplan came to the States. I first heard of Petplan from a friend in England who had it for her Golden..back then we couldn't get it here.

Thanks Petplan for making yourself available to us.

10/10   So happy with Petplan, 12/7/2014

Reviewed By: Matt, Recommend: Y

My dog, Hugo, was out running in the park with one of his friends having a good time when he took a quick turn and ran into a tree. He ended up cutting open his side quite severely, leaving a 2-foot long gash in his side that required immediate surgery to repair. He underwent 4 more surgeries following that initial problem over a 2 month period. This was very stressful for us and difficult for Hugo.

Our veterinary bills built up during this period and I was so happy to know Petplan was standing behind us. They covered all of the procedures, as promised, and removed this one bit of stress from an already difficult situation.

I've always wondered if pet insurance is worth it, but after this experience, I now know it is and Petplan is the best company out there. Thank you!

10/10   Very Satisfied, 11/28/2014

Reviewed By: steve , Recommend: Y

I purchased pet plan for my German Shepherd puppy 3 years ago with my primary thought being ďinsuranceĒ for potential hip dysplasia and after my research I found that Petplan had one of the best reputations for covering this type of condition. Well in the last 6 months and after extensive Dental repair and a recent ACL surgery Pet plan has given me checks totaling over $5000. Their preapproval program has been simple to submit and has helped to quickly alleviate the financial stress that has come from these procedures. Submitting claim paperwork has been seamless and the refund checks have come within two weeks. I certainly went with the right insurance Company for my pet and I tell everyone and anyone that will listen how great Petplan is.... My Dog is everything to me and the peace of mind that I have in knowing that Petplan is behind us helps me to sleep at night.

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
