*Not available in all states. Pre-existing condition coverage available after 365 days of continuous coverage. “Only brand“ refers to comparison with 5 pet insurance carriers making up approximately 80% of the US pet insurance market (Nationwide, ASPCA, Trupanion, HealthyPaws and PetPlan).
We have a 2-year-old German Shepherd. Our boy had an adverse reaction to anesthesia plus has had ongoing issues with allergies. We have a “wellness” plan with our vet’s office, but none of the extras would be covered. The pet insurance has been a godsend. I would highly recommend it. Refunds are easy to process and explanations come with the refunds. Thank you so much.

I appreciate your timely review/processing/payments and making what is a difficult experience when your pet (Harper) has an injury/surgery much easier. My sweet girl is recovering from her TPLO surgery on Friday 9/17, and I just appreciate having you as a partner in her care.

Thank you AKC Ins.! This was a stressful illness for our dog, but she is fine and the claim and payment info from AKC Pet Insurance was super easy and fast. I’m so glad we went with them. Hopefully, we won’t need it anymore, but it’s good to know we have it for “Labrador” life.
