As a veterinarian I wanted to create a website where pet owners could research available plans and read pet insurance reviews all in one place.

Nothing seems to cause more frustration or confusion for pet owners than trying to figure out which pet insurance plan is right for them.

While I hope this website provides all the information you need to make an informed decision, ultimately the choice up to you.


Compare Pet Insurance Plans relies on people like you to provide feedback for others. On this website you'll find many areas to leave your review comments: Pet Insurance Reviews

Available Plans

I have also provide a complete listing of all dog and cat plans by price to make it easier to match plans with what you are willing to spend. To see these plans visit Dog Insurance Plans and Cat Insurance Plans

Claim Forms

Also I collected the links to all the form claims you could ever need and put them all here: Claim Forms. All of them are listed alphabetically by company name.


Today's pet owner has a lot more choices than just a few years ago. On this website you can compare pet insurance plans from many different companies.

Remember, you should take your time when looking for a pet policy and try and get at least three quotes and compare them before buying a plan for your pet.


I have answered several of the most important questions I get asked about pet insurance on this site as well. The most common two are "Should I Get Pet Insurance" and "Is Pet Insurance Worth It?"

Making the choice to buy a policy is a personal financial decision that most financial planners and veterinarians disagree on.

What I do know is that the quality of the plans offered and the prices have improved a lot, even over just the last 5 years.


Getting a pet policy is not for everyone, which is why I also include several alternative choices on this website. Beside buy a policy you could just create a "pet savings plan" or buy a Wellness Plan, like those offered by PetSmart. PetAssure is another company that has a good alternative to pet insurance that you might want to check out.


Although 90% of this site is dedicated to pet insurance, I have included information on homeowner's policies and dog bite insurance.

Also if you have a pet related business you need to look into getting yourself protected from lawsuits.


Not all policies are offered in every state, which I why I created this section at Compare Pet Insurance Plans to help you determine which policies are available in your area.


Some breeds cost more to insure than others due to genetic conditions. I have tried to list common disease conditions in these breeds that may be reasons why these dogs are more expensive to insure.

Also some dog breeds are called "dangerous" and it is often hard to get a homeowner's policy for these dogs. For some of these dogs on the list read: Dangerous Dog Insurance.


Thanks for visiting Compare Pet Insurance Plans, and I hope this site can give you some useful information. If you have suggestions for improvements, please let me know.
