We have AKC insurance and LOVE it

We have AKC insurance since our pup came to us at 10 weeks old. It's well paid for itself when she came, she had Guardia we thought she swallowed something. after all the diagnosis the bill was $789 When we first got AKC insurance it started at $56 a month with the wellness plan, and she is now 3 years old it's gone down to $46 a month we use it for just regular checkups and heart worm testing with the mediations and it cost us a few dollars well worth the price and protection!

Hi! AKC Pet Insurance is a TOTAL scam- please save your money or go with another pet insurance carrier. You basically have to pay for every tier in order for anything to be included. They don't even pay for Exams if your dog is sick.... TOTAL TOTAL SCAM!!!

Scam, don't waist your time

Bought one of their most expensive plans at $125 per month. We had a puppy that started having diarrhea and the vet recommended an abdominal ultrasound to rule out a blockage. Total for visits and ultrasound was just under $2k. This scam of a company paid $40. Don't waste your money. Will be saving the $125 per month from now on.

Seems to be a joke

Bought puppy and bought insurance. Went for 1st exam and vet heard heart murmur. In Dec. Hope he would out grow it went to get echocardiogram in Feb. Was told i would get zero help due to not waiting another month or jan to get heart checked. Lol i know they in business to male money. But i think hearing heart murmur that a pup can grow out of and waiting more than the 30day waiting period to confirm if there is a heart issue and be told wont cover seems to he a joke. Plus there was zero follow up like i was told. I had to wait and wait and finally call to hear they woupdnt cover. Now this also after i was told in jan that by waiting till 3rd week of Feb that this woupd be covered and i should renew the policy which i did. So seems they tell you what you want to hear to sell a policy till you need to file claim. Canceling policy asap and buyer beware
