I did the research--Pet Plan is THE best

Out of 10

I researched them all.. PetPlan is the best and most respected
In the short span of 3 months my adopted Labrador of 13 1/2 years had several medical procedures which ran into the thousands. There was nothing I wouldn't have done for him..even giving him my kidney if he needed it even though I didn't have insurance !!!

This experience got me thinking about getting my other pets insured. Many years before I had VPI insurance but wasn't pleased with the original founders history (he now owns another insurance company for pets) or their own policy of reimbursing for "reasonable" costs determined by them. I wanted a company whose would not argue with me about veterinary costs, who would reimburse quickly, had reasonable rates (I am on the bronze plan) and a company that had a philosophy of caring for all animals and giving back to animals in need.

Never would I have believed that soon after buying the policy for my 5 cats and 2 other dogs, I would be in the ER with 3 of them. My 2 cats had eaten tasty pill pockets with dangerous doses of pain meds ( for my 13 1/2 yr. old Lab) and three days later my other rescued Lab had to have an emergency splenectomy where the deadly hemangiosarcoma was removed.

After submitting my claim forms I soon received a check in the mail from Pet Plan..no questions asked.

To get an even better deal on this insurance, make sure your pets are microchipped, sign up through the Humane Society of the United States for an additional 5% off www.HSUS.org and if you sign up on line, another 5 % off.
Best deal in the country and your pets will thank you for it.

Hi, I am currently on VPI, have been for years but not satisfied, just got overwhelmed with all the insurances out there now (weren't too many several years ago!) and which one to pick. I'm looking at PetPlan for my older dog almost 10. Thanks for the tips about saving money you guys!
