3/10   Western , 9/4/2013

Reviewed By: Frankie Berube, Recommend: Y

Purina Pet insurance will no longer be providing their Pet Insurance in Canada. I was advised of this change and was given the option of transferring my policy to another insurance company, along with the option of upgrading my policy which I did.

The problem is that in 2011 my dog had some urinary problems, which to date havenít reoccurred.

The underwriter, Western refuses to increase the coverage for this problem to match the new policy accident/illness coverage. The only reason why I am staying is that the newer policy includes some better options than the old policy with Purina.

I was told by Customer Service that there would be no penalties for a straight transfer. This isnít true so be careful.

1/10   loosing proposition, 6/2/2013

Reviewed By: Diether Weeren, Recommend: N

when we originaly took out Purina insurance for both our dachshunds it was a great insurance. They changed from unlimited coverage to max $2,000\per incident,reduced on one dog the coverage to 60%, increased the deductable to $300 and found petty excuses not to pay claims. It simply did not make sense to keep the insurance. Do the math.....

3/10   Getting worse, 8/4/2012

Reviewed By: John Maveety, Recommend: N

Since we started about three years ago policy changes have caused the rates to go up, higher deductibles and less coverage. I don't know who is making the money grab, Purina or Western Financial or both but its getting to be impossible to have them pay anything.
