A few years ago, I made a decision to purchase pet insurance for our dogs and cats. I did a lot of research and compared prices charged and types of coverage offered by multiple companies, and ultimately decided upon insuring them with Petplan. This decision proved to be one of the smartest that I have ever made. In November of 2013, our cat, Buddy, became ill, and was diagnosed with intestinal Lymphoma. Arriving at this diagnosis involved multiple examinations, hospitalizations, tests, endoscopy, and biopsies, all of which were performed over a period of several weeks. The total cost of these procedures was in the thousands of dollars, and Petplan was there for us every step of the way. Claims were processed quickly, and we were reimbursed for our expenses within seven to ten days of claim submission. I am happy to report that today, more than one year after his diagnosis, Buddy is doing very well, and showing no outward signs of his disease. He will have to be on a regimen of chemotherapy drugs and steroids for the rest of his life to control his disease, and he must be examined and have blood tests performed every three months to monitor the effectiveness of his current treatment protocol. His insurance coverage through Petplan has allowed us to obtain the best veterinary care available for Buddy without any financial concerns. He, and the rest of our pets, will continue to be insured through Petplan for the rest of their lives. This company excels in providing outstanding coverage and customer service which is affordable and provided by people who truly care about pets.
