Vet-Verified PetFirst Reviews
Updated 4/26/17 by Dr. Pippa Elliot
Our vet team’s PetFirst reviews evaluate the Lifetime 5000, Lifetime 10,000, and Lifetime 20,000 plans. All three offer the same comprehensive coverage. The only difference is their annual payout limits: $5,000, $10,000, and $20,000 respectively.
Features of PetFirst Coverage
Like many of the best pet insurances, PetFirst covers genetic conditions, such as hip dysplasia. What sets PetFirst apart is senior pet coverage, short waiting periods, and reimbursement for vet exam fees, medication, and holistic care.
PetFirst Insurance Details
When you compare pet insurance, it’s important to read the fine print. All three Lifetime policies are straightforward, so there’s no confusion about coverage when your pet needs medical care.
Routine Wellness from PetFirst
Proper pet care includes preventative exams and treatments. Most pet insurances don’t cover routine care, but PetFirst offers wellness insurance options that you can add to your policy.
PetFirst’s routine coverage is offered at three different annual benefit levels, $125, $250, or $400, to reimburse you for:
- Routine vet exams
- Flea and heartworm prevention
- Behavior training
- Spay or neuter
- Teeth cleaning
- Routine health screens
If you’re considering PetFirst’s routine care riders, keep in mind that there are reimbursement maximums for each of the treatments listed. For example, the $250 routine care benefit will reimburse you up to $50 per year for vaccinations:
|Routine vet exams||$15||$25||$35|
|Flea/heartworm & microchip||$50||$60||$100|
|Spay/neuter & teeth cleaning||–||$50||$100|
