Top five reasons to choose Petplan today:

According to independent reviews by pet parents across the nation, Petplan is consistently ranked 9 out of 10 or higher in customer satisfaction,* and with over 35 years worldwide experience protecting pets, it’s easy to see why.


Many pets will suffer from hereditary conditions during their lifetime. And not just purebred cats and dogs, either! Even our mixed-breed friends can inherit conditions from their parents. Some pet insurance companies either automatically exclude hereditary conditions entirely, or have complicated age limits and restrictions or require you to pay an additional fee. Petplan covers hereditary conditions as standard, plain and simple.*

When a member of your four-legged family has been sick or injured, the last thing you need is the stress of an unexpected financial burden on your family’s finances. At Petplan, we strive to pay claims as swiftly as possible for increased peace of mind and customer satisfaction. We are proud to consistently pay claims within five to 14 days of submitting a completed claim. And if you have any questions at any stage of the process, our Happiness Managers will be happy to help (while the whole team keeps their fingers and paws crossed for your pet’s speedy recovery!). 
 
Petplan covers injuries and illnesses for life; some other pet insurers do not. This is our Covered for LifeTM guarantee, and for many pets, it can make all the difference. Once your pet is insured, Petplan will cover chronic conditions into old age, provided you renew your policy each year without any break in coverage.* And when you consider that 30-40% of all pet insurance claims received by Petplan are for chronic conditions that can last beyond 12 months,* it’s easy to see how choosing the right insurance coverage for your dog or cat is one of the most important decisions you can make.

At Petplan, we realize that getting the best care for your pet can often involve consulting a specialized veterinarian. That’s why we cover fees for specialist and referral veterinary treatment, including cardiology (matters of the heart), dermatology (skin conditions and allergies), orthopedics (bones and joints) and oncology (cancer treatments), to name a few.

We also understand that your pet may sometimes require more than conventional veterinary treatment to recover fully. That’s why we’ll cover alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy or chiropractic treatment, provided that the treatment is recommended and administered by a licensed veterinarian.


Petplan has been providing pet health insurance around the world for more than 35 years. We are recommended by veterinarians, breeders, shelters and pet parents around the globe. Add to that the stability and strength of AGCS Marine Insurance Company, a member of the Allianz Group (the world’s largest property and casualty insurer group*), as our underwriting partner and it’s easy to see why more than 1 million pet parents worldwide protect their four-legged family members with Petplan.

Of course, the best way to find out if Petplan is right for your pet is to give us a try. All Petplan policies come with a 30-day money back guarantee. This means you can rest assured that if you are not entirely satisfied with your policy, simply cancel within the first 30 days and we’ll reimburse you in full (provided you have not submitted a claim).
