View Full Version : Pet insurance anyone?

I am going to get my first Cavalier next month, and I am thinking it might be a good idea to look into pet insurance. Can anybody here reccomend a good company here in the states? I hate to simply buy over the internet without some input from other owners. Thank you, Veesha

I have insurance through PetPlan (gopetplan.com) and love it. I've been insured with VPI and AKC and didn't get much out of either. PetPlan has been great.

I have done alot of research and seen the same question on here, and after what I read, I decided to insure with Pet Plan (www.gopetplan.com). It seems that they cover many genetic problems that Cavaliers are prone to that many other health plans do not. They get good feedback on here :thmbsup:

Oh thank you both so much for the input, my head is spinning from looking at all the different 'plans' and disclaimers from different companies...Thanks!

Great you mentioned this!!! VPI said they would cover MRI for Ella's SM did not. Friend had PetPlan and paid 70% of MRI and I'm not sure but I want to say I think Surgery. She said that the owner has Cavaliers!!!! :jump: So I would recommend Pet Plan. Don't quote me on the Surgery but I know for a fact she got the check for the MRI. Stay far away from VPI :swear:
