We love the pet insurance program.
We are thankful we got it for our lab. She's had several
surgeries and even cancer in her young 7 years. Without the insurance, we would have to make
some tough decisions.
AKC Pet Healthcare Plan has been a blessing to me as my 8 year old yorkie had to go
through some extensive medical testing at the NCSU vet school and although, I had
some out of pocket expense, it was so good to know that the $1500 limit was paid in
a very timely manner after all my claim forms were turned in....He has had some
pancreatitis over the years and the insurance has been well worth the cost for us...
I would highly recommend it to folks as they become new pet owners!

We have had Grace covered from the trial period on. She is eight now and has had several
occasions that required the use of her coverage. She just had TPLO surgery to repair a
torn ligament and meniscus in her left knee. The coverage allowed us to choose this more
expensive operation over a cheaper option that had less chance of success for her age and
weight. Very happy with the service.

I am a big fan of pet insurance. We have had AKC for both of our dogs for six years.
My company offered VPI at a discount so I switched one of our dogs to VPI to try it.
In short, from VPI, the amount I spent on insurance would have easily covered my output
for the dog bills. Bottom line, AKC has paid nearly every claim with little to no hassle.
I am so sorry I switched. I would recommend AKC to everyone.

Our Black Russian Terrier had a serious immune response to vaccination and became severely
anemic. Thank heavens for our insurance. The price is reasonable
and the plan pays off quickly. I highly recommend the insurance plan.

My Saint Bernard has had two gastric surgeries, pneumonia, and hypothyroidism. I have
had good experiences with the customer service, only one claim quibble, and everything
else paid back to me promptly after the claims were filed. We have
had over 10,000.00 in vet bills in two years, so I am renewing and probably upgrading
from essential plus to wellness. I wish I had done this from the start, since
all things cost so much more with giant breed dogs.

We have had AKC coverage since we became Higgins parents 4 years ago. He has allergies
and sees the vet once a month. He also gets into mischief that often requires a visit to
the vet. AKC coverage has been great. Well worth the money. We
purchased the coverage thinking we would use it as he got older, but our little guy had

We bought this plan when are little girl was just 12 weeks old. She is now approaching six.
AKC PHP has been there for every little and large medical event in her life. We are
reimbursed promptly (less than 2weeks from claim), we have never been denied any claim.
It is so comforting to know when our dog is sick we afford her the
very best medical care thanks to AKC Pet Healthcare Plan. We recommend this insurance
to all our friends and family.

Quick review and settlement of our claim. Have been with AKC over
five years and have always been satisfied. This most recent was a big one for us.

At a time when our family was undergoing a serious illness, my young dog, Cali became
very ill. After numerous testing and finally reaching a diagnosis and a five day hospital
stay, Cali is on the way to recovery. Cali came home with a large bill which was 80 %
covered by her insurance. It was a blessing not to worry about the
cost of her care. The check came quickly with no hassles. We are grateful.

My 3 year retriever grabbed a shish kabob with uncooked meat & swallowed it whole before
he even landed back on the ground. The shish kabob sharp stick was 8 inches long & now in
his stomach. Within 90 minutes, the stick was fished out of his stomach successfully under
anesthesia late at night. Total bill $1800. AKC insurance sent me a check for $1300 within
10 days. Without any hassle. I would do a commercial for AKC's service:
prompt & very reasonable reimbursement.

We only have been enrolled in the plan for a few months when Molly blew out her right
rear knee. Knee surgery and our claim was paid promptly
following their review of the
claim. I am very pleased.
