I got my first dog Bouncer in 2006. Shortly after, I purchased the only Pet Insurance I know VPI pet insurance, after one claim, I knew that insurance would not protect my dog and me due to its policy of allowance for each incident; before my policy expired, I started shopping for Pet Insurance, this time I did my homework, after I called seven Pet Insurance Companies and the rating from petinsurancereview.com, I purchased Petplan policy for Bouncer in 2007 and I am very happy with my decision. In the past three years, Bouncer had ear infections, eye infection, rat poison and kidney disorder, with help from petplan, we went through them all and never had problem with my claim.
March 12, I rescued my 5 years old Chihuahua Tiger. There was no doubt I purchased Petplan policy for him. Two month later, I found out something was wrong with him, a few of visits to the vet, with x-ray and blood work, the Dr. diagnosis he has seizures and prescribed Phenobarbital for him. After I have learned about seizures and the treatments. I chose the expensive treatments which are herbal supplement and Acupuncture. Now, he is seizure free two months. I am so grateful. My total claim paid $621.70.
Thanks to Petplan, I never hesitate to go to the vet due to the costs.
