Frequently Asked Questions

If your pet has an ongoing prescription that you usually fill through your vet, it may be possible to utilize an online pet pharmacy or service. However, prior to switching your pet’s medication, you should contact your vet for their recommendation. If your pet is on maintenance medication, try to plan ahead and always have a two-week supply on hand.

The World Organization for Animal Health has announced that there is no evidence that cats or dogs spread the disease to humans, but that anyone who is sick should take precautions in contact with their animals as they would with people. This is an evolving pandemic and further studies are needed to have a definitive answer.

Chances are good that your pet will be happy to have so much time at home with you. To keep your pet from getting bored, especially if you are working from home for most of the day, give your pet a food puzzle toy to work on. For cats, hide little treats around the house so they can spend their time hunting for food.

During your free time, take your dog out for walks or runs or play fetch with them in your yard. For your cat, flash a laser light across the floor. You could also attach a small piece of feather to a stick and let your cat try to catch the feather.

Overall, while under quarantine, spend regular quality time with your pet throughout the day. Keep them busy while you’re working and give them lots of love when you’re not working.

Social distancing can end up feeling isolating because you are not able to interact with people as you normally would, and your usual outlets for entertainment and socializing (e.g., restaurants, malls) are likely closed. Having a pet during social distancing/quarantine can be good for your physical and mental health. For example, taking your dog out for a walk allows you to get some fresh air and exercise. Giving your pet a nice back or belly rub can help lower your anxiety and stress levels.

Our pets are very perceptive to our body language and emotions. If your pet senses that you are anxious or sad, don’t be surprised if they want to cuddle with you to lift your spirits.

Because this is an evolving pandemic and further research is still needed regarding the transmission of the virus, consider limiting your pet’s exposure and practicing good hygiene after interacting with your pet.

Amazing company. It’s a little bit expensive each month but has proven to be worth it. The yearly coverage I got for my pet is $5000 and we will use the entire amount this year, so it’s already paid for itself. You get insurance hoping and praying you never have to use it, but at least this company is extremely easy to work with when you do have to use it. This is been a lifesaver, literally. In the end there may not be anything we can do to save our cat, but at least with this insurance we can try. They have great customer service. They are very knowledgeable of the product, coverage, etc. and are always so empathetic. I’ve called them crying several times now haha. Thank you MetLife. 🙏❤️

I called in to ask some questions about Pet Insurance since I'm an existing auto policy holder. I had the pleasure of speaking to Jody Montgomery who is based out of OH. Jody was phenomenal. In about 15 minutes, he was able to answer all of my tens of questions and give me confidence to bundle the policy/add the pet insurance for our newly adopted puppy. He did such a good job and was kind, professional,and compassionate. I was planning on spending upwards of 3-5 hours figuring this out but Jody made it all possible in 15 minutes. I am so pleased by the level of service and care MetLife offers it's customers. It's absolutely critical nowadays and it's amazing to see MetLife excel at it! Representatives like Jody should be rewarded for retaining customers, giving them the ability to unlock freedoms in their life through insurance products, and instilling confidence in the customer. What a pleasure to do business with, I will always think of MetLife for insurance needs after that stellar interaction/service with Jody Montgomery. #AboveAndBeyond

Having pet insurance was the best decision I've made when adopting my fur baby. Sadly, my pet has experienced some health issues since I've adopted him, but MetLife has been such an easy process and has really alleviated the stress that comes with huge vet bills. I'm so thankful for this service and can't recommend them enough. They're really there for you when you need them!

I received a discount on pet insurance through another company through my work and MetLife outbid that company even with the discount. They have great coverage and a good price and even cover things like preventative care and holistic treatments. Customer service experience was great too, I did my research online and signed up over the phone. Really happy with my decision!

Called the rep to get quote and answer some questions before deciding to buy and very impressed with the reps knowledge and the way the information was presented. I got a very great rate and decided to but a policy. It's the best policy coverage I have for my money and am very satisfied. From a long time dog owner I highly recommend MetLife Pet Insurance.

Met Pet First Insurance was really easy to sign up for and clear definitions on what is covered. My experince with customer service was good, the representative was professional, friendly and answered all my questions. She even asked how my pet is, what type of pet and his name and wished him well. I pay $40 a month, which really is reasonable when you consider what can happen to your pet and the cost of emergency services.

Customer service is stellar. We were having difficulty finding my company’s information to apply my discount and Kyle offered to look into it and call back.He respected my time and wanted to allow me the curtesy of not being placed on an extended hold.That meant a lot to me.Once that was settled, Kyle carefully explained the available options. I never felt rushed. He took the time to let me ask questions and wanted to make sure I found the best fit. Love that claim submissions and history are all available online and as an app! Even for those Kyle assured me that at anytime I could reach out and ask for help if needed. Nice. 🤓He congratulated us on our new furry family members and expressed excitement for our us! (😸 x 2!)Thanks Kyle for making this a great experience!

The customer service I received from MetLife Pet Insurance was excellent. She was very helpful and polite. Explained in detail what was involved. Also, I found it very lovely to have spoken with a pet parent who 💯% understands. My plan covers accident and illness, which will be automatically deducted from my work paycheck.

My son switched from Figo to Pet First and recommended I do the same. He gave me the name of his agent, Jody. The service I received was above and beyond. He took the time to run numbers to make sure I got the coverage I needed and didn't pay for coverage that wouldn't benefit me. So refreshing, to find an honest businessman who puts your best interest first! Highly recommend, definitely ask for Jody!

I’ve never had a problem reaching, speaking to, faxing, submitting or getting paid! They are prompt, courteous and professional. Both times I needed them, they paid exactly what promised; 90% of the ENTIRE CLAIM, less the $100 deductible. I can’t understand how anyone could be dissatisfied. I recommend them 1000%

After spending thousands of dollars out-of-pocket on our last pet due to unexpected medical issues, we decided to take out an insurance plan on our new fur baby. We did our due diligence and researched any and every company we could find before settling on PetFirst. From the beginning, their representatives were friendly, knowledgeable, patient with all of our questions and just plain enjoyable to work with. Price wise, we also felt it was a good deal. Responses to our initial claims have been extremely fast. While we've only used our new policy for the new puppy exams and vaccinations, we are confident that PetFirst will be there if we ever face those sometimes very costly unexpected situations.

I had this pet insurance given to us when we adopted our puppy as part of their adoption plan. After the first month we were given the option to continue or not. PetFirst saved us almost $600 in vet bills, therefore we chose to stay with them. We ended up needing it in the following months anyway. Everyone was super responsive and compassionate about our dog. They have good prices and could save you lots of money! I would recommend them if anyone needed pet insurance. Accidents happen, might as well be ready for them.

Edna in customer service was excellent in reviewing my current policy which is set to renew. She is the customer service rep one would always hope to come across in any company. Also, kudos to PetFirst as my premium would have gone up only $10/month as opposed to Nationwide; when we were with Nationwide, they doubled my premium after the first year. Edna looked at my policy and with a minor adjustment, my premium will stay the same! Wonderful!

This is my second dog with Pet First and I am impressed with the fast response and quick reimbursement I get from them. As long as you remember to include your SOAP notes from the vet with your invoice, there will be no problems. When I had trouble getting my notes from an ER visit, Rhiannon helped by calling them herself. She was very kind and helpful. I highly recommend Pet First! They take care of you and are quick to reimburse.

I can’t not say enough good things about this company. You can always get somebody who is kind and courteous on the phone and they are always attentive to whatever needs I have. My sweet dog has been going through chemotherapy treatments on and off for a year, and submitting a claim to Pet First is so easy and quick! It means a lot to me to not have to worry about insurance while I’m caring for my dog. I highly recommend Pet First to everyone!

I had the chance to talk to someone about possibly get pet insurance for my two cats. Upon calling the young lady first greets me getting to know how much I love my cats and then continue the process. They were very thorough, she went as far as explaining and ensuring I understood the potential policy from price, coverage, and inclusion and exclusions. I have not yet set my mind with them, but definitely enjoyed the experience. Would recommend!

Pet First Health Insurance is the best decision I made when adopting my dog. They quickly process and explain their decisions. Great value.

Rates are reasonable, coverage for major accidents and injuries is good. We unfortunately had to use it for one of our pups when she had a hospital visit due to a GI infection. We filed the claim and it was processed quickly! Tip: make sure to submit all pet information the first time (including pet’s 12 month vet history) to make things go smoothly.

PetFirst was the best decision for my bulldog Ruby! When she gets sick unexpectedly, the stress level is already raised with worry her.

I appreciate that as well.

I found the PetFirst website to be easy to use after a littlepractice and their help desk is also easy to access.A little patience with their turnaround times after filing a claimis indicated but worthwhile. I found very little quibbling overthe claim as long as you can get your Vet to supply the neededinformation (invoice, medical notes, test results, etc).

PetFirst Insurance has been an excellent insurance company at a difficult time for us and our cat Momoko. We have been subscribers for several years and had no reason to need the bernefits of pet health insurance.The adjusters were very helpful and helped us with our cats illness by providing service at a time when we needed it. Anyone we spoke with from Pet First has been kind,polite and helpful. When we had to file a claim they were helpful by walking us through it. Thanks Pet first!

Just called to activate 30 days free pet insurance. I expected a hard sell for a policy but was pleasantly surprised at how professional the representative was in explaining coverage. No pressure at all. I decided to go ahead and activate a family plan for my two new pets because the monthly premium was so reasonable and based on my past experiences as a pet owner I know I'll use the coverage!

The shelter where I adopted my two cats used this insurance and I kept using it after the trial period ended. Honestly, having pet insurance in the first place is really helpful in emergencies, which we've had, and this one in particular is very affordable for two large male cats. The only downside is that, at the time that I last needed to file a major claim, the pet hospital I went to didn't have this company on file, so they couldn't file the claim on my behalf. But I'm sure that will change in the future and I'm still satisfied with the service and expedience of this insurance company.

When we adopted our little "Sammy" from the shelter, there was an advertisement for Pet First Insurance included with his paperwork. We had never had anything like this for any of our pets but because "Sammy" was a shelter animal and 7 years old, we decided to look into it. We contacted them, liked what we found out and decided to get their make a long story short, within 6 months, Sammy got very sick and when we got him to the vet he didn't know what was wrong and didn't know if they could save him.. he was lethargic, unable to stand and it scared us to death. The vet took him, tried several things over the 5 days he was there and whatever it was, the medicine and care he was given was enough to save his life. The bill was over $1,000.00 and when I submitted it to Pet First with the vet's paperwork, we received almost all of the money back that we had spent, less the low a very short time, without any hassle what-so-ever. We highly recommend this company as without them, we would have had a very hard time absorbing the costs of Sammy's treatment that saved his life. Today we still have our Sammy and also Pet First Insurance. We would not be without the both of them!! Thank you Pet First.Sincerely, Nancy & Mike Warner

I recently called PetFirst Pet Insurance and inquired about certain coverage for my pet. I first spoke with Amanda. She was quick and easy to talk with. She then transferred me to talk with Chris about getting more coverage. Chris was honest with me about prices and since I have a senior pet, adding more coverage would have not been a good idea. They were careful with delivering that news and were very kind about it. Thank you for your help!

This was the first time I had to submit a claim for one of my dogs. As soon as I found out she would need surgery, I called to ask about coverage and the process. The representative I spoke with was so nice and helpful. He even took the time to email me the claim form. The process was very simple. I collected all the paperwork from her vet appointments as well as 12 months of vet records (this is the process when it is your first claim) and emailed everything on 3/23 and already got an email today 3/28 that everything was approved and the check was sent. Definitely an easy process!

My PetFirst insurance came in very handy when my cat got ringworm. They covered all vet visits, medication, etc. so it saved me a ton of money. Submitting the documentation was easy as I did it online via my customer portal, and when everything was processed I was notified by email. I was kind of worried that I wouldn't get reimbursed based on others' reviews but I had no problem. PetFirst was actually great and I was able to get in touch with them via online chat to check in on the status of my claim. It was easy and everyone I spoke to/ chatted with was very friendly and helpful. I think as long as you have a legitimate claim (accident or illness) and have your paperwork and documentation organized, you should be fine and get reimbursed like me.

The sales rep was amazing! He was polite, accommodating, no nonsense, straight to the point, easy to understand and included all pertinent information. Explained in detail the policy options, signed me up and read all legal statements; I was off the phone in 5 minutes. It's a small price to pay for piece of mind considering you never know when or what could happen to your pet!

Petfirst adheres to the terms and conditions of their policy. They offer a 100 percent reimbursement and an annual deductible. Their cost is very favorable in comparison to the 2 other companies my dogs are insured with. They have very short wait periods for accident and illness but be aware they do have a one year waiting period for orthopedic conditions.They need to offer a fully online experience including ach deposits of payments and closer to real time claims status online to earn 5 stars but I would certainly recommend them without reservation.Sincerely,Molly

Our dog, Jet, ate something she shouldn't have and ended up with a serious gastro-intestinal upset. She was listless, vomiting, and had diarrhea and was only getting worse as the day went on. We took her to the emergency vet since it was Easter Sunday. Jet stayed at the Vet for the next 24 plus hours getting antibiotics and intravenous hydration. The bill, as you can imagine, was over $1500. I submitted the claim to Pet First -- they reimbursed us at 90% less $100 deductible within two weeks. No hassle. No worries. Thanks Pet First!

I normally shy away from companies that don't allow me to change information online and that require me to call them. I got PetFirst for one month free with the adoption of my new kitten. To set it up, I had to call. My coverage ends soon so I had to call today to renew it - I couldn't do this online. However, each time I have called and spoke to someone (today it was Kyle), it has been painless and very easy. The people I've spoken to have been able to answer my questions well and in ways that are very easy to understand. Also, the pricing is great compared to other insurance companies I've looked into. Plus, I'm a CVT so I got a discount. :)

I love PetFirst Insurance. I could not have made it all these years as a pet parent without the coverage. It has helped to ensure that my pet got the best possible care. The people that work for the company are wonderful and helpful. They really care!! Cannot say enough good things about this company. Pet owners need this. This is a great company. Better than any health insurance company that I have ever had!! Do yourself a favor. You will not regret gaving this coverage!! Renee

This is the first dog we have purchased pet insurance for and we are very happy we did. The first 30-day's was part of her adoption fee and we have been continued the services. Our dog is a bit of a trouble-maker and we now have the peace of mind that should she get injured or sick, PetFirst will help cover expenses. Our claims have been handled quickly and professionally each time. Customer service is always pleasant and helpful. We would recommend PetFirst Pet Insurance for anyone looking to insure a furry loved-one.

When I first signed up with Pet First insurance I was a little nervous. You just never know how these companies will treat you when it actually comes time to use the coverage. I'm happy to say, Pet First has handled everyone of my claims as I had hoped, and as stated in my policy. They also covered veterinarians doctors who were holistic practitioners and prescribed natural supplements, which was important to me.

We adopted our kitten from the local Humane Society. I am so glad we started PetFirst coverage and was surprised to discover we actually needed it. Though we had no major health concern; a few months after our kitten was home, she showed signs of allergies that were hard to pinpoint. This required several veterinarian visits and the expenses added up. We were pleasantly pleased that we have received two substantial checks in the mail from PetFirst. I am so glad I went with PetFirst and I highly recommend it. (These days, even minor health concerns can be expensive.)

We adopted our kitten from the local Humane Society and PetFirst gave us one free month. I continued coverage and was surprised with how it came in handy. We had no major health concern; but, a month after our kitten was home, she showed signs of allergies that were hard to pinpoint. This required several veterinarian visits and the expenses added up. We were pleasantly surprised that we have received two substantial checks in the mail from PetFirst. I am so glad I continued with PetFirst and I highly recommend it.

They have been great at helping when I needed it for my fur baby. He had cancer and had to have surgery. Now if any cancer comes back he is going to be taken care of by the insurance. Great piece of mind when you are heartbroken and worried about your furry love.

Submitting a claim was easy and PetFirst Pet Insurance honored their part of our policy with prompt review and payment. We were completely satisfied! The whole process was much easier than I had anticipated and we could not more highly recommend PetFirst Insurance!

Our dog had to have kidney dialysis, which was traumatic enough without the financial worry. He came through with flying colors--and so did PetFirst! Thank you. The settlement was fast and fair. We highly recommend them.

David at PetFirst made the pet insurance process easy to understand and know what the expectations are for coverage. David was professional and patient as I asked many questions. I hope I never need the insurance but it gives me peace of mind to know that my pet has a covered thank you David!

For some reason l could not get my claim to go thru with email. I called to see if there was a computer problem. The young lady that answered the phone told me to go ahead and email it to her and she would take it over to the claims department. Excellent customer service. I got my check last week. Very pleased with PetFirst, their coverage and their filing application.

We had just picked our little girl Sally from the shelter. 4 days later she was very ill. In fact, we did not think she would make it. Lots of love and two trips to the vet and she is starting to live again and doing well! The vet bills were daunting but PetFirst stepped up and paid the claims promptly! Thank you!

If it wasn't for the insurance I have for our Fur Baby Munchkin who is a (Gray Tabby) I don't think he would be here with us I've never had such a horrific scare. Our Munchkin caught a parasite that he had for a while it got so bad that it started affecting his blood luckily the Pet ER we took him to where so amazing they took care of him soooo quickly he had to stay overnight so they can monitor his progress he was on IV fluids, and different antibiotics to get him better but I am so Thankful and Grateful that his insurance covered this😔 like I said I don't know what state I would have been without My Fur Baby. Thank You Again Pet First Insurance

Probably the only insurance company I have ever had consistently good service from and interaction with. I had 1 policy with them on a new cat I adopted and everything went so well with claims that I got policies for my 2 other animals. Definitely worth the monthly payment!

Amazing dog insurance! I couldn’t be any happier with the service that is provided by them. They reviewed all of my claims and issued my reimbursement checks within 20 days of me submitting the online claim. Their service and coverages are great.

I had 30 free days of insurance with PetFirst when I adopted my dog Maggie. I had to take her in with an emergency after two weeks, and I was so thankful I was covered by PetFirst. Their claims process was incredibly easy, and I got reimbursed in about a week. If you're looking for a user-friendly website and claim process, give PetFirst a chance!

Very informative and easy to work with. Got a free month from my state’s humane society. Very good way to introduce insurance for your pet. I’ve owned several rescued pets. This is my first time to carry insurance. I see where it will be cost effective for me with three dogs.

I love this company! My English Bulldog Oliver had 2 mast cell tumors removed this past year (2 different claims), and PetFirst reimbursed me for the majority of these bills! They are life saviors. For anyone even considering buying pet insurance it is definitely worth it! Especially for the peace of mind (veterinary bills can get extremely expensive fast). When I was in the 24 hour veterinary specialty clinic I met a man who’s 1 year old blood hound got hit by a car earlier in the week (his dog had 2 broken hips). His children were devastated. This poor man told me he didn’t have pet insurance either. I felt bad for him.

I am so grateful that pet insurance is available to cover our furry friends, and after tons of research and even trying out a few competitor's plans in the past, I have found PetFirst to be the absolute best. I no longer have to wait and worry about being able to take my pets to the vet when they are sick or hurt. If it is more than just an upset tummy or sore muscles from playing a little too hard, I know I can take them to their regular vet or emergency hospital and get them whatever they need.I chose the $50 deductible with 90% reimbursement so I don't have to worry about my part of the cost of the visit afterwards. I have a Zero interest credit card specifically designed for medical expenses (offered by most doctors and veterinarians) and it offers 6 mos-18 mos interest free if balance paid before promotion ends. I never have to worry about paying it off in time because with PetFirst it is usually less than 2 weeks to receive my reimbursement check.People may think they can't afford pet insurance, but I say how can I not? I have limited income and I still make sure to set aside for the insurance. Not being able to get medical care for my pets or having to possibly choose to euthanize them because a treatment is too costly isn't a decision I have to worry about. That peace of mind is worth giving up a couple of extras each month so that my fur babies are all protected.Also, having the lifetime plan is extra comfort, because if they ever develop anything chronic, they will always be covered for that in the future.Thanks PetFirst for allowing me to be able to always give my pets whatever care they need in case they get sick or hurt. I may give up cable or eating out, but I will never give up our pet insurance!

I have had dogs all my life and have stupidly never gotten pet insurance... ( my bad)... after losing our last dog in June, we rescued another dog and the rescue group took out a 30 day policy on our new furkid. Free for us. After talking with Pet First, I ended up just taking a policy out after the 30 days were up and oh boy am I glad we did. We had issues with his stomach and I sent all the paper work in and viola! A check within 3 weeks! Just fantastic! I highly recommend this company!

Great company to work with. They are truly there to help you in any way that they can. I have a Tibetan mastiff puppy who has had some major issues as he has grown up and I’m not sure what I would have done without petfirst! Their claims process is quick and easy! Receiving a check is usually within days of your claim being approved. You can upload every document right through their website, or email any forms directly to them. I don’t have time for the back and forth nonsense which you would typically expect from any type of insurance company...but that is truly not the case here. Thank you!

Excellent Insurance! Extremely helpful and caring Customer Service! I have carried insurance on my Pets for Several Years, hoping I don’t need it. I really have been Pleased with this Company. They really came through recently when my Dog had an Ear Cancer. They helped pay for almost 5,000. Dollars in Surgery and Medication. I did not have to stress about how I was going to pay for his Treatment. They have Customer Service Individuals you become familiar with and that is also reassuring. I am extremely Satsified with how this Company handled all of my questions.

When we adopted our little girl Sunny from the SPCA they were kind enough to give us an immediate free trial of this pet insurance. We called up first thing Monday morning and activated. (They do have limited weekend hours available too). The operator who helped us sign up was extremely friendly and informative. I was comforted knowing our new little family member was covered almost immediately should anything arise. That same week we took Sunny into the emergency vet because we thought she was having some breathing problems. $500 dollars later they sent us home with some Benadryl and a clean bill of health. I submitted my claim to PetsFirst within that same week. The process was easily outlined of what was required and had an easy upload option for the docs they required. The site stated the process could take up to 10 business days and I got a reply on day 7! To add to my excitement they were able to reimburse me almost all that I'd paid at the emergency vet. I will be sticking with PetFirst as my go to for my pet insurance needs. They really came through for us. A+ experience!

I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH PETFIRST. Really this was the first time I have ever had a puppy or insurance, and I see why its so needed. Honestly, I never thought i would use it, but after my puppy became sick, really sick, the vet bills piled up. We had to take her to an emergency vet, and get tons of iv fluids and on and on. Then 3000 dollars later and PetFirst has taken care of EVERYTHING. But the deductible. It saved us so much money and so many headaches. BUY THIS for your animal. You won't regret it.

I've had my rescue dog for a year now. Poor little guy has had chronic diarrhea starting just a couple of weeks from when we adopted him. Luckily, we got a free trial of PetFirst insurance that we now gladly pay for. They have been great in paying without questions or hassles for all of the tests and treatment. Easier than most human health insurance.

their prices are really good and I would recommend this insurance. I never had a problem with them and I have gotten payment back from them fast. They have answered all of my questions. I have saved a lot of money with them being the first time to use this sort of insurance. I wouldn't go without now.

I've had PetFirst Insurance for about a year now and it's been a real life-saver. It has the best coverage of any pet insurance plan I've heard of. We had an $800 emergency vet bill for my 2-year old lab mix (we thought she had an obstruction) and they reimbursed about $700 of it. The vet thought surgery might have been needed for a little while and I was really happy to have the insurance because PetFirst would've covered the majority of it. Their claim turnaround is pretty fast, I was able to get the reimbursement within a couple weeks and claims are really easy to file. Having PetFirst allows me to focus on my dog and her needs in an emergency without having to worry about the costs of treating her.

Have had pets for the last 15 years and decided just last year to purchase a health insurance plan for my 2 dogs. I wasn't sure how this was going to work out and not sure if it was worth it. Well, found out it was totally worth it after my 7 year old greyhound was diagnosed with hemolitic anemia. We had lost another dog to this dreaded disease over 5 years ago and I was devastated. This time, we did catch it early and were able to treat it aggressively. Thank goodness, she survived and is back to her happy self. I gathered up all my bills and lab work and sent in my first claim to PetFirst pet insurance. Just received our reimbursement check in the mail yesterday. They paid a good portion of a very large bill and it made doing the right thing for our beloved pet that much easier. Plus it was an easy process too. No hassles at all. I will continue with the plans for both my dogs as long as they are with us! Highly recommend this insurance to any pet parent looking for peace of mind.
