With two rescued young black lab mixes, we studied the various alternatives in pet health coverage. Previously, we had 2 rescues who passed on within 6 months of each other. The first died from cardiomyopathy and the second suffered from liver cancer. The bills were in the thousands of dollars but we did not have insurance. We never considered not providing health care but the dent in our bank account was painful - but not nearly as painful as the loss of our two wonderful canine children.
In addition to researching the dollars and cents, we also spoke with many folks who had different insurance companies. We selected PetPlan and are VERY pleased with our decision. So pleased, in fact, that our friends think we are sales staff for the company (we aren't)!
Our claims to date have been processed very quickly and beyond our level of expectations!
