My dog Webster has had 2 severe illnesses over the past 3 years and I don't know what I would have done without Petplan. Several years ago he went into shock due to a protein-losing enteropathy and spent several days at the ER vet. The bill was high, over $10k high with required regular follow-ups, Petplan was able to quickly process the claim. Then, in the spring of 2016, Webster suddenly had a pericardial effusion that went into his stomach as well. This was another multi-thousand dollar claim that was quickly resolved. It's hard enough being in these emergency situations with your loved pet, but at least you don't have to worry about the cost of providing the best care when you have Petplan. My vets and I agree that Webster must be part cat with 9 lives.
