Being a first time dog owner, I wanted the peace of mind knowing that a pet emergency or condition wouldn't put me in a financial bind. After researching options, I signed Springsteen up for PetPlan as they seemed to be the best insurer available. I opted for the Gold plan, & so far this has proven to be one of the wisest decisions I have made.
In the 16 months that I have been a PetPlan customer, my dog has had an ear infection, a bout with vomiting, & also pancreatitis. All of these claims were handled swiftly & hassle-free. An added bonus to the Gold plan -- which is something I never expected to take advantage of -- was when I myself had to be admitted to the hospital & have emergency surgery. Since I didn't have anyone that could take care of Springsteen, he had to be boarded in a kennel. PetPlan's Gold policy covered $500 of his boarding fees.
Another great feature available to PetPlan policy holders is their website. On there you can easily download claim forms, policy documents, & also see the status of the claims submitted. So far I couldn't be happier with the coverage that has been provided, & the peace of mind that having this policy has given me.
