Teddy, our 6-years-old yorkie/maltese, was diagnosed with liver disease when he was about 18 months old. He had an extensive work-up at a nearby university vet school and has been on daily medication ever since. He also has regular blood work to monitor his condition. We are so thankful that we signed up for Petplan insurance when we brought Teddy home when he was just 12 weeks old. It is the first time we purchased medical coverage for a pet and it was because of the many expenses we had with our prior beloved dog. Petplan has been terrific! It is stressful enough to have a pet with a potentially serious condition without the additional stress of the expenses related to that condition. Petplan representatives are easy to access and always helpful, and payments are consistently timely.
