10/10   I am very gratefull to Nationwide Insurance, 12/18/2016

Reviewed By: Mario Fusco, Recommend: Y

I have had pet insurance for the past 18 years on my beloved Billy. During that period I had three major disasters that I don't know what I would have done if it weren't for Nationwide. When Billy was 13 he needed Knee surgery which was very costly and Nationwide stood by us and paid their portion of the claim. When Billy was 16 he had Vestibular Syndrome. We had to take him to the Emergency ward and the cost was extremely expensive. Nationwide took on quite a bit of the burden. And lastly when Billy was 18 he developed incurable Cancer and unfortunately passed away. The last few days I the emergency hospital was very expensive but not only did Nationwide help us pay part of the bill, they returned the premium for that period. I am truly grateful. I now have a new puppy and after looking at other alternatives. I chose Nationwide, since I feel that they are the best.

9/10   Feel relieved knowing I have Nationwide Pet Ins., 12/16/2016

Reviewed By: Megan E Klemm, Recommend: Y

I got the Major Medical Coverage after my few month old kitty broke his paw. Now a couple years later I have two cats (a two year old and a 6 month old). I made sure to have insurance for both of them just in case anything happens. I have submitted a claim every time I went to the vet for any reason. They respond with a friendliness and thorough explanation if it is not covered. So make sure to read what is included and what is not! All and all I am greatful for Nationwide Pet Insurance and will continue using them for my kitties!! :)

10/10   Wonderful Experience, 12/15/2016

Reviewed By: Linda, Recommend: Y

When we brought home our golden doodle pup at 9 weeks old a friend who had a one year old puppy told us we should invest in dog insurance. She had not done so and was already out of pocket over $1,500 in the first year. We decided to invest in the insurance and thank goodness we did. Our pup got very sick after she was spayed and we found out she was born with two under developed kidneys.
She has been diagnosed with renal dysplasia and may not live past 3 yrs old. As sad as this is we have been very grateful for Nationwide. They have been beyond amazing. Our claims are reviewed within 3 days and a check is sent within 10 days. I even get an email once in a while to ask how Curry is doing. Well I think I personally need this dog insurance as my medical health insurance does not care one bit about me. I have told everyone I know about this company and referred all my friends to Nationwide. I was so worried upon the first renewal that Curry would not be eligible for another year of insurance but this was not the case...we are into our second year.

10/10   Fantastic Insurance - so happy to have, 12/14/2016

Reviewed By: Helen, Recommend: Y

I had heard horror stories from people about the lack of coverage pet insurance really provides and wanted to make sure we were getting something that would work. I researched and compared a lot of pet insurance companies and in the end Nationwide came out on top. They were the only company that covered preventative care (via the Wellness Plan) with a lower deductible and high percentage of coverage. We knew that we'd meet the deductable with basic exams, vaccines, and flea meds and anything random would be covered.

Unfortunately for our pup, and us, we put it to the test when she tore her ACL. ACL repair is not easy and it's really expensive. We moved forward with the surgery crossing our fingers that Nationwide would cover what we expected them to cover. It took some time for them to review her records and make the final decision (that was the worst part), but in the end they covered thousands of dollars - from the diagnostic x-rays, surgery, meds, and the follow up x-rays.

We couldn't be happier with the coverage and experience. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a pet insurance carrier.
