Petplan is more than medical insurance for pets — it's peace of mind for pet parents. When your best friend gets sick or injured, pet insurance helps pay the vet bill.

Visit any licensed veterinarian in the United States or Canada to get the care your pet needs.
Download the Petplan mobile app to submit claims right from the vet's office.

what pet insurance doesn't cover
Unlike human healthcare, pet medical insurance is unable to provide coverage for pre-existing conditions. If your pet experienced a curable condition prior to enrolling in a Petplan policy, the condition may be eligible for coverage after an exclusionary period.
Pet medical insurance is not a wellness plan, and does not provide coverage for routine care such as teeth cleaning, vaccines or spaying/neutering.
Tail docking, ear cropping and dewclaw removal are unnecessary cosmetic procedures ineligible for coverage, unless deemed medically necessary by your vet.
Unlike pet insurance, which is designed to protect the pet, liability insurance only protects the homeowner and their assets in the event of an incident.
how a pet insurance plan is built
There are a number of factors that go into determining your pet insurance cost.
Petplan insures pets ages 6 weeks to 20+ years. It can be more expensive to insure older pets due to increased risk, and reimbursement options may be limited.
Pet insurance premiums take into account the varying cost of veterinary care from geographic region to region.
We insure all breeds of dogs and cats, but some have a higher genetic risk factor for hereditary issues.
The maximum annual dollar amount you'll be reimbursed, per policy year, for treatments for illness or injury.
The fixed annual dollar amount you're responsible for before insurance kicks in.
The percentage of your claim for which you'll be reimbursed, less your deductible (if not yet met).
