Customer Review


"I went with PetPlan, they seemed to meet my future needs the best. I have Nationwide for my eldest at 16 and at this point it wouldn't behoove me to change with all her preexisting conditions.

With that said, they kept me on a subpar plan without alerting me to the poor coverage I would have.

After 15 years of being a loyal policyholder, I was pathetically reimbursed when trying to save two dogs who both died from cancer in the same year.

I think Petplan with be a better plan... I hope."
