Pet Insurance – Why you need it!

Unexpected accidents and illnesses can wreak havoc on your family budget. Petplan® pet insurance helps cover the costs so that you can concentrate on what matters most — getting your four-legged family members the care they deserve.

Healthcare gets costly without pet insurance

Every six seconds, a pet parent is faced with a vet bill for more than $1,0001. And one in three pets will need unexpected veterinary care each year2. You want to make the best decision for your pet, regardless of cost. Petplan pet insurance provides peace of mind that should your pet get sick or injured, your costs can be covered.

How Petplan Works

If your pet has an accident or becomes ill, Petplan helps cover the costs. In the unfortunate event that your pet needs unexpected veterinary care, simply visit your vet as normal, send Petplan your simple, completed claim form and within 10 days (usually less!) your reimbursement should arrive. And with Petplan, you have the freedom and flexibility to visit any licensed vet in the United States or Canada.


Use any veterinarian, anywhere.

Policyholders are free to visit any licensed veterinarian anywhere in the United States or Canada, including referral, specialist, alternative and behavioral therapy vets. So if you are out of town or on vacation with your pet, you can still claim for a visit to the veterinarian.

Straightforward, flat-rate reimbursement for your veterinary fees.

With Petplan, we reimburse you what the veterinarian charges (minus the deductible, up to the policy limit you selected), plain and simple. And with Petplan, 95% of paid claims are processed within five (5) days of our receiving a completed claims submission.

Petplan is America’s #1 pet insurance provider. In fact, Petplan has been providing pet health insurance for more than 35 years (that’s 245 in dog years).

Here’s what Petplan policyholders are saying:

“Our 10-month-old Saint Bernard, Bodie, was diagnosed with OCD in both shoulders — which meant that he would be on medication for this condition most of his life. We have submitted three claims and each time we had a check within two weeks (and sometimes within one). AMAZING. I only wished we could be on this insurance.” — Anne, Mel and Bodie

“We have had Petplan for a little over a year now and we are very happy with them! Our beloved dog, Jake, was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on his right shoulder. It was very expensive to have ultrasounds, X-rays, aspirations, doctor visits and surgery. Petplan was wonderful. They processed all my claims quickly and efficiently, and sent my checks without delay. The insurance was literally a lifesaver. Without Petplan, I wouldn’t have been able to afford all the procedures and follow-up care Jake needed.” — Rick and Sabina

“The vet bills, bloodwork and medications for my cat, Tigger, were all covered, and the reimbursement checks were mailed to me in less than two weeks. I have all six of my cats covered and can’t emphasize enough that if you have pets, this company is a must have!” — Lee Ann and Tigger

“Thank you Petplan for all you do every day giving clients peace of mind, and helping them do the best for their beloved pets. As a veterinarian, I certainly appreciate you for helping me and my team practice the best quality medicine. There is nothing more heartbreaking than knowing we can help a sick pet but not being able to because of finances.” — Dr. Zubin Emmanuel
