Whether you have a new puppy or a senior cat, pet health insurance is still important. Many people consider their pet a part of their family and as pet parents, you want your pets to receive the best care possible, no matter what. Should your pet unexpectedly get injured or become ill or maybe eat something they weren’t supposed to, we never want you to choose between getting your pet the care he deserves and being financially stable. Pet health insurance gives you financial support and alleviates some of the burden of a high cost vet bill.

My dog Raven developed diabetes very rapidly, as a result she also developed an eye condition which was very serious. In essence she was blind in both eyes. I went to a specialist and found that while the one eye would have to be removed... heartbreaking the doctor believed we could save her sight in the one eye . This surgery was very expensive but she had a cataract removed and also a shunt placed so the pressures would stay down. She can see well now out of that eye. I could not have afforded the surgery without knowing that Pet Plan would cover a large portion. Thank you Pet Plan. All the staff have been so helpful and supportive during this stressful time.Joy Augustine
I never want to second guess healthcare decisions for my four legged family members - two rescues, a dog Lyla and a cat Gracie. They even cover behavioral problems which nobody really covers. Lyla, my now 14 year old Maltese, an ex puppy mill mom who I adopted when she was 8 years old, has battled cancer - if it wasn't for Petplan I would have had no help in dealing with the over 14k between surgery and radiation therapy. She has been cancer free for over three years now - thank you Petplan for helping me do the best for her.Lavinia P.
Let me just start by saying that insuring our two dogs with Petplan is one the best the decisions we've ever made. Unfortunately for us, our youngest pup, Pumpkin broke her leg, TWICE. It was traumatic for the whole family, especially because she was so tiny... and just too adorable for her own good. Petplan was AMAZING. I really can't emphasize this enough. We'd heard stories about other companies not covering certain procedures or having "very fine print", not Petplan. They were SO HELPFUL and so responsive that we were able to focus on Pumpkin's recovery. This last claim we filed was processed so quickly that we received our check in less than 2 weeks!!! If you are looking for a pet insurance company, I highly recommend Petplan.Lisa Gusimat
I purchased a policy for my kitten seeing how she was a rescue and I knew nothing about where she came from. A couple of months after we got our kitten (Finnegan)we brought her into our vet as she was acting very lethargic....just not herself. She was diagnosed with a liver shunt. Heartbreaking news! But having PetPlan as our provider gave us security and comfort when dealing with this situation. All the staff was so helpful and understanding. Finnegan went through a huge surgery and is recovering nicely. PetPlan has paid us over $7,000.00 in reimbursements. Between the customer care and the integrity of the claims processing this company is A1. Must have.Beth Jenkins
Pet insurance: The smart choice for pets
There are many reasons why more pet parents today are covering their pets with ASPCA Pet Health Insurance. Most of all, they want to make sure they’ll have financial support if their pet is sick or hurt. That way, they can give their pets the best care possible without worrying about the cost.

When my dog was sick, my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance claim was paid quickly, and they called to see how my dog was doing. They even followed up later to make sure we remembered to submit any other bills. That is customer service. I recommend ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to everyone!SUSAN P.
I'm not one to give praise often, but ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has been a wonderful experience. Absolutely no surprises. Everything was paid as expected and quicker than even my own health insurance provider. It was such a nice surprise to have a company do what they say they’ll do, without any delays or questions. I strongly recommend ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to everyone. I’ll also never go without it for as long as I have a pet. My cat needed surgery, and the cost was almost $1,000. I would have gone ahead with the surgery no matter what, but it sure is nice to be able to take a major event like that and make it less painful.DAN K.
My husky, Glen, loves to eat socks and small toys. One day he got very sick, and we took him to the emergency animal hospital. He needed to have exploratory surgery to find out what was wrong. The veterinarian discovered that he had a cut in his stomach with a hair in it that was irritating his stomach. This was making him vomit, and he also had a parasite that had survived the deworming medication. A year later, Glen also had torn his CCL and had to have knee surgery. Glen is perfectly fine now, but ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has reimbursed me more than $2,500! It was the best decision of my life, and all of my dogs will have this insurance.VERONICA J.
My sister’s beloved dog was hit by a car. It was a horrible experience, but she was grateful to have had pet insurance to help with the bills. That made me pause and realize that my two cats weren’t insured. I shopped around and compared plans offered by a couple providers. I decided to buy an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan that covered accidents and illnesses. My plan also has coverage for chronic conditions. Four months later, I took one of my cats to the vet for a checkup. I pointed out a small bump I’d felt on the tip of her tail. It was biopsied, and I was stunned to hear it was cancer. Our vet amputated a part of my cat’s tail, and now, years later, she’s in good health. I’m grateful that I didn’t have to worry about unexpected veterinary bills at these stressful times.JENNY C.

Our world was shaken recently when our dog Luke was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. As soon as we got this diagnosis we took action in getting him the best treatment possible. The treatment plan including surgery, monthly chemotherapy, medications, and tests was not of financial concern for us because we had pet health insurance. Getting Trupanion a few years ago was the best decision we ever made. Having peace of mind in being able to give our dogs the best standard of care and not needing to stress about the financials is worth more than anything. Trupanion has always been easy to deal with and everyone is very helpful and pleasant. Trupanion has made it possible for our family to continue living a happy life together and we recommend it to everyone we know with pets.Meryl and Josh C.
In 2013 we had to say goodbye to our best friends Jake and Hunter within five weeks of each other. The veterinary bills were over $5,000, which we had to put on a credit card. Our veterinarian recommended Trupanion when we adopted our new dog Molly – and it certainly has paid off. In late January 2016, we took Molly to the veterinarian because she was not eating or breathing correctly. The vet decided to do her senior wellness exam early which included an X-ray. We found out she had spontaneous pneumothorax, an accumulation of air between the chest wall and the lungs. As she was monitored, they told us that surgery was her best chance. She had part of her left lung removed and spent six days at the emergency clinic. Recovery was hard because she couldn’t do much of anything for four weeks after surgery. Thankfully, Molly has fully recovered and we had a great time this summer playing outside and going for walks. Thanks to Trupanion, we were able to afford to keep her well!Michele N.
At just 5 months of age, Ella fell off a chair and accidently broke her front leg. Ella’s leg was splinted with the hope that the fracture would heal well. Along with frequent splint changes and checkups, Ella developed some pressure sores and a skin infection, which were treated on an almost daily basis. Multiple follow-up radiographs showed that, unfortunately, Ella’s fracture was not healing properly and she was developing elbow dysplasia which was very painful for her. The end result meant surgery in order to amputate her deformed leg. Now, Ella lives happily as a fast-running, three-legged pooch who enjoys life and does not live in discomfort anymore. Trupanion has been an important part in Ella’s journey to her wellbeing. She is lucky to have such great human parents and great health insurance through Trupanion!
When I adopted Star as a puppy I debated getting insurance because, I figured I would invest in insurance when she was older. Shortly after enrolling Star with Trupanion she became very ill, and in the past six years she has been diagnosed with numerous health issues: incurable internal bacteria, IBD, allergies to food and vaccinations, bleeding ulcers, and inflammation of the gallbladder -- all of which is now controllable with daily medications. Trupanion has paid over $27,000 toward her medical bills. All of my claims were processed and checks were mailed out within seven days of receiving the invoice. The doctors have Star on a plan that is managing her illnesses and as for Star -- she is wagging her tail and playing every day!Tina C.
