BOISE, IdahoPets Best Insurance Services, LLC, (Pets Best), a leading U.S. pet insurance agency based in Boise, Idaho, is pleased to announce a $500 donation in support of Gateway Pet Guardians.

Gateway Pet Guardians is a nonprofit shelter and pet rescue based in St. Louis, Missouri, that makes a difference in people’s lives across the United States with pet therapy adoption programs. Pets Best recognizes and supports the importance of therapy programs which is why during the month of February, for each new enrolled Pets Best policy holder, a portion of that new policy was donated back to Gateway Pet Guardians.

“We’ve been partnering with Gateway Pet Guardians for years now, but when we saw the story about Jordin Brewer, a nine-year-old boy from Missouri who has been battling with debilitating anxiety for years, to the point where his mom, Jennifer, couldn’t take the burden anymore and sought any help she could find, we knew we needed to get involved,” said Chris L. Middleton, president of Pets Best.

After researching dog therapy programs that might be a fit for her son’s situation, she found that adopting a certified therapy dog to be both cost-prohibitive and time-consuming. When a volunteer at Gateway Pet Guardians and family friend of the Brewers heard of their search for a support dog for Jordin, she thought of a solution.Read More…

Pets Best Unveils New Unlimited Pet Insurance Plan

Pets Best Holiday Gift Guide 2016.

No annual or lifetime reimbursement limits helps provide pet owners with financial peace of mind.

Boise, Idaho – Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC, (Pets Best) a leading U.S. pet insurance agency based in Boise, Idaho, is pleased to announce they now have an Unlimited Accident and Illness Pet Insurance Plan.

For more than 10 years, Pets Best has helped provide peace of mind to pet parents by offering customizable pet insurance plans and quick reimbursements on veterinary bills. Pets Best has built a reputation of customer-centric innovations that put the customer’s best interests first. Continuing in this legacy, Pets Best introduces the Unlimited Accident and Illness Pet Insurance Plan.

What’s an Unlimited Accident and Illness Plan?

Pet insurance works on a reimbursement model, meaning customers pay their pet’s veterinary bill, submit a claim to the pet insurance provider, and then they get reimbursed on that bill. Previously, all plans offered by Pets Best had an annual limit. So, for example, if a plan with a $10,000 annual limit was purchased, the maximum that customer could be reimbursed on their pet’s veterinary bills would be $10,000 during that policy year. However, with the new Unlimited Accident and Illness Plan, no matter the amount of their pet’s veterinary bills, pet owners won’t have to worry about maxing out the amount they can get reimbursed; be it $5,000 or $50,000 or more. There are no annual or lifetime limits.

The Pets Best Unlimited Accident and Illness Plan* also has the most comprehensive coverage for pets, including:

  • Accident coverage needed, for example, to treat broken bones, poisoning, car accident, lacerations, foreign or object ingestion which results in surgery.
  • Illness coverage needed, for example, to treat cancer, diabetes, arthritis, allergies, cruciate ligament injuries, skin and ear infections, urinary tract infections, and epilepsy.
  • Hereditary and congenital conditions.
  • Emergency care, hospitalization, and surgery.
  • Prescription medications.
  • Ongoing & chronic conditions.
  • Diagnostics.
  • Physical rehabilitation.
