Pet Insurance recommendations

I have never gotten pet insurance on any of my pets before. I am considering getting insurance on my new puppy. I have read about PetPlan insurance. They seem to be very good and offer more coverage then other than other pet insurance companies. Has anyone used PetPlan and get tell me good/bad things about them. Is it wise to get insurance at all?

Thanks!!

I have had PetPlan since January of this year.

So far I have had to file two claims . One is paid and they are working on the second claim.

I am happy with them so far

Michaela - Are they pretty quick with the payment on the claims? Did they give you any trouble with anything you submitted?

Thanks for the imput!!

I have Petplan and I'm very happy with it. I've filed two claims with them so far (hopefully I don't need to do it anymore), and they've been very quick, deliver everything as expected by the policy and were absolutely hassle free. The claim turn around was less then a week.

Is pet plan different coverage than what adding the Shepherd to your homeowner's policy does? I understand that I have to have a rider on my homeowner's because my insurance considers the GSD an intimidating breed. Funny, Akitas are not required to have additional coverage, but GSD are. Oh well. Since this thread regarded insurance I thought I'd throw that question in. Thanks!!

PetPlan is a canine health insurance plan which covers different things than the homeowners policies..

Do they cover things such as hip dysplasia operations, etc?
