We've had 24 PetWatch for both dogs close to 3 years. We are satisfied with their offerings and find them comparable to others. I just received my 2017 policy renewal and rates are doubling due to a change in underwriters so I started shopping around...again. I find the PW review by Consumers Advocate misleading and outdated: (1) coverage levels changed a few years ago. We have EXTRA with $3000 per policy term max. and $100 annual deductible. (2) I do not find a sliding scale in my new 2017 policy manual. (3) They pay eligible vet exams where some competitors do not pay vet exams. (4) They also pay towards RX diets. Our 2 dogs will have pre-existing conditions should we change companies... Read More
They just sold to a new company and doubled my insurance premiums! I am leaving them
This company is terrible--at least in canada they are!!!!!! They would rather you kill your dog than give you a penny. My 5 month old puppy was the runt of the liver and only after having him for about a month did we have some concerns--we always have chosen the runt of the liver --with no issues. My puppy ended up needing surgery as he had a postsytematic shunt issue. He was placed on anti seizure medication, antibiotics a stool softener and a special diet (low protein) from the the vet. Hiis surgery was over 5,000.....They covered nothing!!!!!! Not the medication, food or surgery......Nothing. All of this happened well after the waiting period. So if you have money to throw away go ahead... Read More
In 2005 I enrolled my cats in 25 Pet Watch Insurance company. For many years I was thrilled with both the customer service and the quick turnaround. However, back in 2012 or thereabouts I found that this was no longer the case. Very long turnaround time, many rejections of submissions for missing documents that I knew had been submitted. This said, I am very happy with the recent changes in this company. The turn around has become much better, the customer service has improved greatly, and the customer portal gives members much more control of what is going on with claims. I have submitted several claims in the past couple of months and they have been handled with dispatch. They... Read More

If I could give no stars, I would. They took over Purina's policies several years ago. At first it took months to get reimbursed. They just raised my premium on one of my cats from 17.21 to 85.00. He has asthma and I use an inhaler. They definitely that this is the reason but I know better. They claim that they notified me but I never received a notice. They tripled the premium on a cat that I have never filed a claim with. Whatever you do,please do not sign up with this company. There have been a lot of complaints about them.
Do not ever buy pet insurance from this fraud of a company! 4000.00 worth of bills and they have never paid one! They asked me for full medical records, which I emailed, and they lost them. I then faxed them, which they lost them. I then sent them certified mail, and was told they're missing one page. Their Facebook page, if it's real, is full of negative comments. The money I put out monthly for this policy, I could have paid my dog's bill myself! #24 PetWatch A fraud company.
I am a military veteran, and I have received more timely care from the VA than my dog received from 24PetWatch. I was denied a claim on an emergent surgery for my dog. The claim was denied because it involved my dog’s mouth. 24PetWatch stated that they don’t reimburse dental claims, and used that excuse to deny compensation for an emergent surgery. I filed an appeal with a personal letter from my dog’s veterinarian explaining the emergent nature of the surgery, and 24PetWatch still denied my claim/appeal. I have been working on this issue for over 8 months, which is how long their claims process took. 24PetWatch Customer Service is terrible; I had to submit my initial claim... Read More

When my dog reached 6 years, they increase insurance 3.5-fold to make it completely unaffordable. My dog is healthy, no huge claims or chronic health problems. I assume it was their way to remove older and potentially sicker dogs from the pool. Don't use them.

Paid 5 years of insurance with 24 Hour petwatch for our Great Dane , put in first claims for urinary problems. They raised our insurance from 61 to 200 dollars and paid 88 cents for 337 dollar claim. Do not use this company, we are seniors on fixed income , these are bad people.
I have been a customer, pet owner, with a policy on my dog since 2014, having signed up when I adopted my pet from the Longmont Humane Society in Colorado, July of 2014. I paid just over $40/month, plus a yearly renewal fee of $19.99. Even though I had visits that I could have filed a claim, I basically got lazy and never filed. I kept all my paperwork, and thought I would actually file once for all of them. NOTE: You must submit a claim within 90 days, or they become invalid. Word to the wise. Last May, our dog had an emergency overnight, 2am wake-up call. We heard her wince and cry out. We searched for her on the bed, as she sleeps with us. We could not find her. I turned on... Read More
