Yeah petplan seems to be the most advised. Looked through a quote earlier, £80 a month so only 20 dearer than other quotes, looks like they pay vets directly too?
Claiming wise is it as simple as that? I know with others there form filling, waiting on a decision etc, last thing I want if god forbid anything happens to him is to have to wait and fill in endless forms to see if they'll pay out?
Mine is £47 a month, male GSD, 18 months now, got it when he was only 8 weeks... Petplan cover for life, gosh £80 is even more expensive than I thought...
Yes, claiming is dead easy, in fact our vet was doing all claims, there is only one form and the only thing you need to fill in is your policy number, the vet did the rest. Anyway, to do it yourself wouldn't be difficult either. Forms are available on the internet or at the vet office.
This horrible experience when my dog had to have that emergency surgery, I only showed them that I did have the insurance and didn't have to fill in anything on that day, they rushed the dog for the surgery and the forms were done 3 days later when I collected him. No worry on that part.
I'm not advocating petplan, prolly other companies provide similar type of cover/service and are as reliable as petplan, just sharing my experience..
