That financial peace of mind, combined with rave reviews about their customer service, distinguished Petplan as the provider we’d recommend to our members.
Newtown Square, PA (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
Petplan has once again earned top-dog recognition from a national veterinary group: The Veterinary Cooperative (TVC). The hospital network, which includes more than 1,000 member practices, chose Petplan over the competition as their recommended pet insurance provider for client pets.
Joining paws with Petplan will help TVC raise client awareness about the benefits of protecting pets with insurance, including up to 100% reimbursement for unexpected vet bills and the peace of mind that financial considerations never have to limit the care their pet receives. In addition to information about Petplan’s coverage and policy offerings, member practices will also receive fun, informative pet health content written by Petplan veterinarians for their websites and newsletters.
“This partnership presents a huge opportunity to educate people about the value of pet insurance,” says Chris Ashton, co-founder and co-CEO of Petplan. “Obviously, earning the endorsement of a veterinary cooperative whose members top $1 billion in annual revenue is a big feather in our cap, but we’re really excited about connecting with pet parents and giving them the support and tools they need to keep their pets thriving.”
As a TVC recommended provider, Petplan will offer clients at member practices the opportunity to try Petplan free for 30 days, as well as discounts when they upgrade their trial to a full policy online (that should get tails wagging!).
“While thoroughly researching pet insurance providers with a TVC member committee, Petplan emerged as an industry leader time and time again,” says Allison Morris, Vice President of Member Experience at TVC. “Pet parents never have to wonder if their policy will protect them – Petplan covers any treatment recommended by a veterinarian for an unexpected injury or illness. That financial peace of mind, combined with rave reviews about their customer service, distinguished Petplan as the provider we’d recommend to our members.”

About The Veterinary Cooperative
TVC was started by 4 veterinarians from around the U.S. to level the playing field in pricing, marketing and business techniques between independent practices and the growing corporate hospitals, big box stores, pharmacies and online providers that are encroaching on the independent animal hospital’s ability to be profitable. These large corporations entering the veterinary industry are squeezing out the independents, as they have in most every other industry. Member owned cooperatives level the playing field as they have in many other industries ensuring independent business, in this case veterinary hospitals, remain competitive and profitable. TVC’s goal is to have the same purchasing power and marketing prowess as the big box stores by growing to 5,000 independent animal hospitals that would have sales and purchasing power equal or greater than these corporate competitors.
The Mission and vision of TVC will be a positive cooperative community of veterinarians and suppliers, who share a vision to provide the best animal care through independent veterinary practices, mutually benefitting all who do business with the Cooperative. TVC will be owned and guided by its independently owned veterinary members and will be managed by professional cooperative personnel. All profits will be returned to TVC member veterinarians in the form of rebate distributions.
