Pet Assure – Pet and Dog Insurance Review

Pet Assure – Pet and Dog Insurance Review

Pet Assure has a different approach to protecting your dog’s health and well-being. This is not a dog insurance company, although they do not provide specific plans that the customer can choose from. By joining this terrific program the dog owner will be able to receive 25% off most veterinary visits. Every dog is eligible, unlike the policy of conventional dog insurance companies, regardless of age, pre-existing conditions, or genetic or hereditary ailments.

Covered are office visits, all vaccinations and other injections, surgery (including spay/neuter), elective procedures (dental cleaning), hospitalization, and much more. There is no limit on how much can be spent on any one procedure. Although most dog insurance providers have a waiting period before your dog is covered, once you and your dog have joined Pet Assure, the discount can be received immediately.

This program allows the dog owner to pick their own veterinarian. It should be noted, however, that the veterinarian you choose has to already be a participant in the program before the 25% discount on care can be given. When journeying with your dog, it would be a good idea to locate participating veterinarians where you will be going. If your current veterinarian is not a participant of the program, it might be helpful to explain the program to them and give them the chance to sign up.

The Pet Assure discount is applied at the time of service, and you will pay only 75% of the bill, the 25% discount is given immediately. You will never have to deal with a claim form when you and your dog are members of Pet Assure. Not only is there no waiting period for members to deal with, as mentioned above, but there are absolutely no exclusions. There are also no deductibles or incident limits. Any medical condition is covered, regardless of the health or age of your dog.

A valuable part of Pet Assure is their Lost Pet Recovery Service. Upon joining this program, your dog will be issued with a Pet ID tag containing your individual identification number and the toll free 24/7 Lost Pet Recovery Service telephone number. Once your lost dog is located and the toll free number called, Pet Assure operators will contact you using the contact information you have provided. They will keep trying until they have spoken to you, to make sure you know where to go to retrieve your dog. Better than a microchip, which has to be scanned, the Recovery Service makes it as easy as possible for you to be reunited with your dog.

The Pet Assure Single Dog Plan costs $9.95 per month, or $99 per year. The Family Plan, which covers 4 dogs, costs $13.95 per month and $149 yearly. Another plan, Pet Assure Lite provides the pet tag and merchant discounts without any veterinary discount. This last might be valuable to the dog owner who has a dog insurance policy elsewhere.

The Pet Assure program is probably best suited to dog owners whose dogs have a pre-existing condition and are ineligible for a regular insurance policy.
