Customer Reviews for 24 Pet Watch

4/10   Huge premium spikes
I recently had my dog's policy renewed after 3 years of having 24 pet watch. Our premium increased from $34 per month to $56 per month with no notification. Our annual policy renewal notification did not include the dollar value for the premium. When I discussed with customer service, I was told they had a significant increase in their cost of coverage in the US and Canada and thus had to spike premiums.

9/10   VERY GLAD I have them
While they are not perfect and bugs have to be worked out on the new system which is good I find them very affordable and while it does take a little longer to get claims completed which i am sure they have many its tolerable.My golden mix is on meds every month and its great to have their help.

1/10   The company will pay you nothing!!!
For 8 years I paid them more than $4000 and when my dog got a surgery that was covered as it is written in the policy, they paid back nothing saying that it could be preventable! We spent $6000 for the surgery and I claimed for a maximum of $2000, but got nothing. Ad it took 2 months. If I just put the money to my pocket I'd save much more! Terrible company, useless spend of money!

10/10   24hr Petwatch is the one!
After a lot of research decided this was the one to go for. Unfortunately my dog has developed an issue, but 24hr Petwatch has been great! I submitted a pre-approval form to make sure they would be able to assist. Just received my insurance check! It does take a bit of time, but that is expected. They need to go thru their claim process. Every phone call I made was answered quick and was handled professionally. The new customer portal is a great enhancement too. Very Happy!!

1/10   slow/no pay
had this insurance for nearly 4 years - started out fine. this year became impossible. Our dog had a chronic problem, diagnosed when he was 9 months old. We had been submitting same bill every few months when suddenly 24HR wasn't receiving the form from the vet, or the info from the vet wasn't complete, they couldn't read the signature or see the diagnosis or the bill submitted didn't show it had been paid! Or they just didn't receive the information/fax at all! Always something and many phone calls to finally get the payment. Seemed their philosophy became "If we ignore or resist you long enough you'll just go away, keep on paying the premium and we can keep the money."

1/10   $100+ a month premium increase!!
Unfortunately ended up with this horrible company because Purinacare pet insurance sold out to them. I should of left then. But will def. be leaving now that they sent me a notice that my $70 monthly premium is going up to $170 a month! Besides that, they say they have 60 days to pay out for claims. And if I don't hear back from them in 50 days, do give them a call. omg, really?

1/10   Good Insurance Gone Terribly BAD!!!
Like so many others, I originally purchased this insurance when it was Purina. When Purina was administering the policy claims were promptly processed hassle free. As soon as 24PetWatch took over things started going bad and have continued in an ever increasing velocity to become truly a nightmare. You now have to spend enormous amounts of your time following up on every claim. Claims are often lost and must be resubmitted, sometimes multiple times. Claims that previously had been promptly paid are now initially denied. Following up on denied claims is difficult. Telephoning requires long hold times with frequent disconnects. If you do eventually get someone to answer they cannot help you and tell you that someone will call you back. They never do. If you ask to speak to a supervisor they tell you none is available and to call back later. Emails frequently go unanswered or the replies are not helpful. Claims processing times have gone from under 30 days to over 90 days. Premiums continue to increase. Thankfully my pet is a very healthy 3 years old and has no preexisting conditions, my only claims have been wellness related (vaccinations, annual exams, and flea/tick medications), so it was an easy decision for me to dump 24PetWatch and go with another insurer.

1/10   24 pet watch
Airing you frustrations out online does nothing. You need to file a complaint with their corporate office. Here's their address: pethealth Inc ATTN: Mark Warren, President, 710 Corvallis dr, Oakville, Ontario, Canada l6k 3v7 he needs to know what the new York office does business. You will get results!!!!!
