NEWTOWN SQUARE, Penn. (May 11, 2015) – Pet insurance provider, Petplan, and pet care company, Best Friends Total Pet Care, have joined forces to meet the growing demand for access to high-quality pet healthcare by launching a unique partnership on May 30, 2015. The two pack leaders share a core belief that pets are family, and Americans are in agreement as evidenced by the $15 billion spent stateside on veterinary care in 20141.

After an extensive and detailed review of the pet insurance marketplace, Seattle-based Best Friends Total Pet Care has selected Petplan as its preferred provider for their 50+ Total Pet Care Centers and veterinary hospitals nationwide. Petplan, in turn, will extend special promotions and offers to Best Friends’ 500,000 clients.

The partnership will make unexpected veterinary care more affordable for pet parents across the nation. It will also supplement Best Friend’s “Total Pet Care” wellness plans, which cover routine care, preventive healthcare and other services.

Best Friends Total Pet Care President and COO Mollie Hoff sees value in clients coupling preventative care plans with pet insurance: “Having both makes it easy for pet parents to plan and budget for their pets’ care through all the stages of their lives.” She continues: “We anticipate that this partnership will result in improved health for America’s cats and dogs, which is at the heart of our mission.”

Petplan co-founder and co-CEO Chris Ashton notes that the partnership makes exceptional veterinary care more accessible: “As Best Friends Total Pet Care’s preferred insurance provider, we are proud to make their state-of-the-art medical facilities and advanced veterinary medicine more accessible for pet parents. America’s maturing pet health and pet insurance markets continue to benefit our families — and especially our four-legged family members.”
