Their website is very easy to use. When you open it, the home page shows a picture of a cat and a dog. You click which pet you are wishing to insure. There is even a link for birds and other animals.

This insurance company for pets even has insurance plans that will cover your pet if it becomes striken with cancer or even rabies.
Their home page claims they even offer simple reimbursement. You take your pet to the vet, send in a copy of the bill and you get a check for the amount covered. It is supposedly that simple.
They have links on the bottom of the page that compares their plans to other plans and even offers you a quick quote. When clicking on the coverage plans, you are then taken to a page where you indicate what state you reside. I clicked on Ohio. It brought me to a page that stated that for $24 a month I could insure my cat. The coverage included accidents and illness and would cover up to 80% of the vet bill. The deductible would be $75.00.
This company also offer discounts if you choose to insure more than one animal.
