Pet Insurance

How did you and your pet first meet? However your pets came into your life, they’re members of your family. And you shouldn’t have to make tough choices when vet bills start adding up because they get sick or hurt. That’s why Farmers chose Pets Best — a leader in pet insurance — to provide coverage that can help by reimbursing veterinary bills for covered claims when your pet has a health issue.

You might have a Labrador retriever in California who has allergies and needs daily medication. Maybe your mixed breed dog in Texas injured his leg and has to do physical therapy. Perhaps your Calico cat in New York has diabetes and needs insulin injections daily.  Call a Pets Best agent to explore coverage options for your pet.

To help you choose the coverage you want, Farmers — through Pets Best — offers these fully customizable coverage plans:

The BestBenefit Accident and Illness is our most popular and comprehensive plan. It includes an unlimited coverage option and can help with unexpected emergencies and illnesses like:

  • Accidents including broken bones, lacerations or car accidents.
  • Illnesses including cancer, diabetes, allergies, arthritis and skin and ear infections.
  • Surgery, hereditary and congenital conditions, prescription medicines, cancer treatments and physical rehabilitation.

Accident-Only is a budget-friendly plan that can help with costs related to accidents — but doesn’t cover illnesses. Regardless of age or breed, it’s available at a monthly rate of $6 for cats and $9 for dogs. (In Washington, the flat monthly rates are $7 and $10, respectively.)

You can add optional Wellness Routine Care coverage to either plan. It offers two tiers of coverage to help pay for regular veterinary visits like annual check-ups, vaccinations and preventative medication for fleas and ticks.

Keep in mind that pet insurance offers coverage for future health issues that may occur — it won’t cover a health issue that has already started. So it’s best to enroll your puppy or kitten while it’s still young, or your newly adopted pet as soon as possible. 

The ease of a claim

If you need to file a claim, it’s as simple as submitting the receipt from your veterinary visit through the Pets Best website or mobile app — even while you’re still at the veterinarian’s office. You can also use the app to check the status of your claim, access policy details and retrieve your claim history.

Most claims are processed in five days or less, and there’s no extra charge for receiving reimbursements by direct deposit.

The Shih Tzu was unresponsive and panting heavily when firefighter Matt Smith carried the dog outside the smoke-filled home.

He laid the dog on the ground and immediately strapped a specially-designed pet oxygen mask around its snout to administer oxygen.
