Pleasantly surprised!

My little pup was less than 3 months old when she broke her paw. This being my first dog I had no clue how to deal with the situation or how much it was going to cost. I knew that the breeder had included 1 month of insurance as part of my agreement which covered a maximum of $1000. I knew that a broken paw was going to cost much more than that... I called Pets Plus from the animal hospital when I found out that the surgery was going to cost $3500. I didn't know how I was going to cover the expense and explained the situation. The representative that I spoke to gave me several options for accidents and illness and informed me that if I registered for a policy that day then by the time my pup goes in for her surgery they next day the policy will be active and her surgery expenses will be 90% covered. I was actually quite shocked that they were willing to cover this expense even when they knew that my puppy was already hurt and how much the surgery was going to cost. Needless to say I was super happy and impressed with their exceptional service. The icing on the cake is that I was reimbursed within 3 weeks! I highly recommend Pets Plus and am super happy with their service!

Can't Thank You Enough

This is late coming, but as they say, better late than never! Our 3 1/2 yr old female french bulldog has had her troubles since day one. Hospitalized a couple of times for serious bouts of pneumonia before the age of 6 mos, a biopsy and other illnesses shortly thereafter, we have always been able to count on Pets Plus Us. Back in Jan 2017 Bailey had emergency surgery to remove a herniated disc and disc fragments. She went from running around one minute to practically being paralyzed the next. The amount of pain she was in was heart wrenching to watch. She needed an MRI to determine first if she needed surgery and second if it was in her best interest to have depending on severity (i.e. quality of life, need to put her down) we were terrified at the unknown. Also with her having anesthetic a couple of times, her pneumonia and the fact she is brachycephalic made it more serious to be put under - MRI 2 hrs; surgery 3 hrs for a total of 5 hrs. It was a decision we had to make on the spot. I quickly called PPU and spoke with Katie our rep. We were concerned about the cost as the surgery would be approx $9,000 and we wanted to make sure we were covered. Katie was able to review the file and give us confidence we were covered, however, if we wanted a 100% guarantee we would need to provide them with some info which we did not have time for. Needless to say, surgery went extremely well and PPU covered us for everything except our deductible and I think some meds. We love PPU, they have been there every time we have needed them. No increase in rates due to our usage of insurance which in itself is a relief. PPU has reimbursed us over $16,000 YTD and has not once denied our claim or threaten to drop us as clients. I feel totally confident with their service!! Always professional and ready to help out!! Thank you!!!

Thank you - Pets Plus Us

I am a senior on a pension and my cat Kirby has been part of my family for 14-years. I purchased insurance with Pets Plus Us because of the recommendation of my veterinarian. I was hesitant as I didn't really understand pet insurance or the necessity of it. Your customer service agents provided me with so much information and took the time to answer all my questions, never trying to rush me off the phone. After 1-year with insurance, our loving Kirby got sick. The treatment to fix Kirby was more than $1,200, will be ongoing and we could not have given Kirby the treatment without the insurance. Kirby and I are so grateful for Pets Plus Us, thank you.
