Summary

PC pet insurance scores great in terms of the quality of coverage it provides with each of its plans. Having no age limits for enrollment is great, especially for pet owners planning for long-term pet care. At $5,000 per accident or illness limit per year, its Ultra plan seems to be a good offer but this might not suffice for pets suffering from chronic illness. This is especially true for its lower ceiling plans (Choice, Value). For pet owners who fear that their pets are prone to lingering illnesses, searching for no-limit benefit pet insurance plan offers would be a better choice.

PC Pet Insurance in Canada review

We had our 2 dogs insured through this service provider and their low cost pet insurance we now understand means low level customer service as well as little to no coverage for our dogs. Their customer service rep. continuously got our 2 dogs mixed when speaking to her on the phone and gave us incorrect information. Also, they way they interpret the vet's note to the extreme was very disappointing to say the least. Our larger dog has a corn on his foot which they interpret as being a dog with a lame leg, unable to walk and put a exclusion for 6 months on his file. To make matters worse the vet put on the dog's report that he has separation anxiety which is quite normal for dogs from a shelter. PC Insurance then put a 2nd exclusion on our dog's file saying he has severe behavioural problems. This company will interpret everything your vet sends them to the extreme and put exclusions so that they do not have to pay for your dog's medical costs. Which brings me to the question then why would I get pet medical insurance if it's not going to cover anything? This is a useless insurance and you will be paying monthly fees for little to no coverage.
