Because "0" is not an option for AKC/Companion Care

More upset with myself than anything, make sure you know what you're covered for. Have never filed a claim during the life of my 5 year old French Bulldog, but have carried AKC insurance the entire time. A few weeks ago my boy developed IVDD- went from unstoppable to having emergency spinal surgery in a week. Over $6500 in bills, thought it was going to be ok, from the financial standpoint... you know, 'cause I had "pet insurance". Filed my claim, got back EOB & $500 today... that was it, all AKC/Companion Care covered was $500. My ignorance, my loss, feels more like a sham than anything beneficial.

Amazing Claim Service

I have worked in claims many years and have never found a company with such quick turnaround on a claim. I needed clarification on a point and the claim representative was cheerful and well informed.

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.

$5 – $90 depending on coverage options chosen.


You have a co-pay of 20% after your annual deductible. The pay-out amount is based on your actual vet bill.

Payout Limits

Per incident limit of $1,500 – $8,000 and annual limits of $3,000 – $16,000 depending on your chosen plan.


Choose from $100 – $1,000 annual deductible.

Age Limits

Pets must be at least 8 weeks old to enroll with no upper age limit. Coverage options available for senior pets.

Waiting Period
