PetsPlusUs - Fast, Dependable and Caring

Sheila is an adorable one year old bulldog we inherited from our son. He found her too reactive. She has had consultations with behavioural vets, is on special meds and a special diet. All of this has been covered by PetsPlusUs with no questions other than asking us how she is doing and are we enjoying her! Happy to report she is improving and I’m always impressed that PetsPlusUs staff take the time to ask how she is when I call in re a claim! They do care!

So thankful for our Pets + Us coverage!

After two major unexpected veterinary expenses in less than six months, we were so thankful for our Pets + Us Accident & Illness coverage for our cat Dali, and are very happy with the way our claims have been handled. Within the first week of bringing Dali and his sister Kahlo home from their rescue foster home, Dali experienced a fall and fractured his femoral neck (the bone that connects leg to hip). Unfortunately, we had not yet applied for pet insurance, and had to pay these expenses (about $2000) out of pocket. Needless to say, we were quick to get our application in following this unexpected event. We purchased Accident & Illness insurance for both cats, and hoped we wouldn't need to use it anytime soon. However, within a couple months, we noticed that Dali was limping again; this time, it appeared he had an injury on the opposite side. After a visit to our vet, we were told he had fractured his other femoral neck - apparently this injury is common in larger young male cats, which Dali is. We immediately submitted our claim to Pets + Us, requesting pre-approval for Dali's surgery costs (another $2000 bill). Within a few days, I was called by a Pets + Us advocate to inform us that because of Dali's initial injury, which was listed on our policy as a pre-existing condition, our claim would be denied. I was very upset, given this meant another large and unexpected out-of-pocket expense for our family within 6 months of adopting our young cats. After explaining th

Thank you Pets + Us!

I am so thankful that I applied for Pets + Us when I did! My 1.5 year old mutt started to limp shortly after we got coverage and what we thought was just a sore leg blew up into arthritis+ surgery+ rehab. Her surgery alone was $4000, and Pets + Us helped cover everything. Because of this we have be able to put Bella into hydrotherapy and have laser treatments done as well. We hope that she will have a long and pain-free life.

Baby Pom Broke her leg

I recently bought a baby pomeranian home - my very first pet. My brother told me to get insurance because his friends has experienced illness/accidents that costed them a fortune. I decided to look up the reviews of multiple pet insurance companies and decided to settled for PetPlusUs. All i can say is that im truly thankful that i bought insurance early on because my puppy broke her leg within the first month of having her. PetPlusUs was helpful throughout this process on the phone and via email. In the end i was able to get back 80% of my surgery cost back (a check of slightly over 3k!!). My dog is all better now but had to go in for routine xray scans which cost $170 each time and I also recieved 80% of the costs back. Overall a great insurance company with great customer service.
