Vet-Verified Review

Last updated 7/3/2016. By Dr. Pippa Elliot, BVMS, MRCVS

Pets Best offers three plans. Our reviewers found that cat and kitten owners pay under $7 per month for the basic plan, while dog and puppy owners will pay about $10 per month for the same coverage.

 

The first plan is called Essential Option for accidents and emergencies. This plan has basic coverage for pet emergencies and is limited to $5,000 in annual claim reimbursements.

 

The second plan, named Plus Option, adds vet exam fees, physical rehabilitation, and alternative care treatments like acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments to the basic accident and illness coverage. Annual limit for Plus Option is $5,000 — the same as the Essential Option plan.

 

The third plan, the Elite Option plan is similar premium offerings by other providers with less coverage than Healthy Paws or Nationwide’s Whole Pet with Wellness. But starting at just $17 per month for cats and $26 per month for dogs, the coverage is very generous for the price. This plan offers $10,000 annual benefits, higher claim limits, full protection against illnesses, accidents, chronic health conditions, but a little less than pricier plans by other providers.

 

Pets Best customers rated their customer service 10/10. Overall, our reviewers found Pets Best plans to be a smart investment for pet parents. Based on excellent reviews and solid coverage, our reviewers gave Pets Best an overall grade of A-.

“Pets Best saved my Labrador”

chocolate lab pet insuranceMy boy was crying in pain and collapsed on the floor. He was rushed into emergency surgery on his neck and the ordeal was so expensive. Pets Best refunded me right away. I could not have afforded to take care of my dog without Pets Best. Thank you.

    I love this insurance! Pets are just like humans and they have medical problems and emergencies that come up too. This insurance has saved me from a doggy medical disaster.

  • Kevin

    I love Pets Best. Despite what some with an ax to grind think, pets experience emotions and physical pain just like humans do. It’s not insane to consider paid pet insurance that the government and/or employers pay either! Dog health emergencies don’t exactly call and give you a heads up before suddenly appearing. Pet insurance saved me from a doggy medical disaster and I have nothing but positive things to say about Pets Best. They paid the claim on time, didn’t deny or exclude anything that they previously said they would cover and the staff seemed genuinely concerned about the well-being of my animal.

  • Ted R.

    This plan, the plus option, is the best choice I’ve made in years. I had to rush my beagle to the ER last summer after he swallowed a huge bone –WHOLE. Luckily I had this insurance and didn’t have to break the bank. My wife would have had a fit. Pets Best has been a great company to deal with so far.

  • Awesome review! As I’m reviewing my current plan, which I love, yet wondering if I can get more for what I’m paying, as I didn’t really know there were so many options 3 years ago when I first purchased. I’m loving the fact that Pets Best was founded by Veterinarians as who better to know what a pet is going to need for health coverage in the long run. I also like all the pieces of the wellness plan. Thank you so much for breaking down the information, as it can become overwhelming for a person, like myself that is new to investigating.. keep smiling

  • Ujjal Karmakar

    I heard many nice things about Pets Best insurance company. It has many awesome features that one can do insurance with this company. It has two premium plan which both are suitable. Monthly premium quote for low coverage offers 70 percent reimbursement, $1,000 annual deductible, $5,000 annual limit,Plus option and Monthly premium quote for plans with comprehensive coverage offers 90 percent reimbursement, $100 annual deductible, $5,000 annual limit. It is really amazing.

  • Erin Floyd Smith

    What a thorough review! It’s nice to be able to really look at the options available to find what’s going to work best for me and my family. I like the flea and tick coverage. Treatments for fleas can add up really quick. It’s just so great to know there are insurance plans available for my furbabies!

  • john

    Pets Best cares enough to support us (the parents of the pets)to have the Vet see our pets and then we receive help in the form of a check from the Insurance Company. Our pet receives better care when we all work together for the good of our pet.

  • Sarah Bott

    We have 2 English Bulldogs that have Pets Best & so far so good. Very easy to use. Great explanations & quick service.

  • ZoeMoey

    I’d recommend Pets Best to anyone with a dog or cat. I’ve been reimbursed for all my vet bills quickly and easily and have only had to pay one modest excess payment plus my monthly premium. It’s saved me a lot of money and I have been impressed with the service and reimbursement for my Bullmastiff.

  • Sunny

    Pets Best offers coverage for the most common accidents, and is definitely a life saver for people on a budget. I love that they have 3 simple plans to choose from, and that they’ve been in business for over 30 years! That really speaks to me because you know what they say, time is the true test. Pets Best passed! 😉

  • sarah evanston

    We use Pets Best and have been very happy with them. Our previous pet insurance company was difficult to contact and they didn’t cover as much as we initially thought they did. If only we had found your site sooner!

  • nikki

    Vaccines seem to be the most expensive part of owning a pet and not having pet insurance makes it even more expensive. Pets Best sounds like a good company and they cover vaccines and exams making the co-pays affordable. Do they also offer cancer coverage? I hear that is a feature that some pet insurance companies are offering now.

  • Marion

    We have to be honest. Pets, especially dogs and cats are a very expensive hobby. They need vaccine. They can get sick and suffer. If you want to have a pet you have to be responsible. With this insurance i can save more than half of my expenses which is very helpful. And i don´t have to worry about the money if something happens.

  • Stacy Karyn

    These monthly prices sound pretty reasonable. With prices and packages like these, there is really no excuse not to purchase insurance, even for people on a very limited budget. This is going to save so much money in the long run!!
