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

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

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

Unlike Pets Best, Petplan lets you submit an unlimited number of claims

With Petplan, there’s no limit to the number of claims you can submit after your 15-day waiting period has passed.

Pets Best will cover the first injury, but not the second one in 18 months if it's caused by repetitive behavior.

With Pets Best, you’ll have to pay for exam fees

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

Unless you pay more to upgrade your plan, Pets Best does not cover exam fees. This could cost you an extra $50 to $250 per vet visit.

Pets Best doesn’t cover every tooth. Petplan does.

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.

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

Fetch has your back if you're hospitalized

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.

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