My cockapoo, Madison, was literally on his death bed in December of 20111. *Fortunately for us, we had purchased pet insurance from Petplan. After much testing, he was diagnosed with a severe case of Inflammatory Bowel disease and needed extensive ongoing treatment and medication as this disease would not be cured, just managed. As of November 2012, I have submitted over $7,000 in claims and it still amazes me how fast my reimbursement checks arrive. Not one claim has been disputed and this is a testament to a company that loves dogs (and cats) and has managed to build business model that puts your pet’s health first. Petplan is clearly the best at what they do.*Please note that in the interest of full disclosure, my company does have a business relationship with Petplan.
