Petplan’s most comprehensive coverage will give you peace of mind, unlike Pets Best

We protect over 250,000 pets and their pet parents, covering up to 90% on unexpected vet bills. Meanwhile, Pets Best’s limited pet insurance policies will leave you stuck paying a huge bill, wondering if the best is yet to come.

Petplan’s one simple plan covers what Pets Best does not, including: 

Tick

The complete sick visit, including exam fees—saving you on average $50-$250 per appointment. You’ll pay more with Pets Best.

Tick

Up to $1,000 in behavioral therapy and medicine, unlike Pets Best.

Tick

Up to $1,000 in boarding fees should you require hospitalization for 4 days or more. Pets Best definitely doesn’t do that.

Pets Best’s illness and injury exam fees will make you sick

Tick

With Petplan, the complete sick visit and treatment are covered in our one simple plan.

Pets Best doesn’t think pet health includes dental health

Petplan protects all of your pet’s teeth (every adult tooth—not just the canines) from accidents, illnesses, injuries and diseases with no broad condition exclusions. 

Cross

Pets Best’s limited dental coverage only includes canine and carnassial teeth, and endodontic treatment (like root canals).

Pets Best will leave your pet weak in the knees. Literally.

With Petplan, just show us that your pet's knees are healthy and you're covered.

Cross

If you have Pets Best, you have to wait 180 days for coverage on your pet’s knees even if they’re certified as healthy. If your pet’s knees get hurt during that time, you’re paying for the entire bill.

Choose Petplan

Petplan has your back if you're hospitalized, unlike Pets Best

Tick

We’re not just here for your pet—should you require hospitalization for 4 days or more, we’ll cover up to $1,000 of your pet’s boarding fees.

Cross

Pets Best doesn’t cover this, so you’ll need to find someone to take care of your pet or incur expensive boarding fees.
