K9 Fit Club and Petplan “Paw-tner” to Keep Furry Friends Fit for Life
CHICAGO, April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — K9 Fit Club, the nation’s first indoor workout facility for dogs and their parents, is proudly teaming up with America’s best-loved pet insurer, Petplan, to offer pet parents the paw-fect way to keep furry friends healthy long into old age. The new partnership combines K9 Fit Club’s focus on an active, healthy lifestyle with Petplan’s comprehensive coverage for unexpected illnesses and injuries. You could say it’s a match made in doggy heaven!
Tricia Montgomery, Founder and Chief Barking Officer of K9 Fit Club said, “We are doggone excited for this paw-tnership! Petplan is much more than an insurance company. Like K9 Fit Club, they are passionate about fostering relationships between man and man’s best friend, and are determined to enhance the longevity of our pets’ life.”
“We love K9 Kit Club’s commitment to pet health, and we applaud their fun approach to pet fitness and well-being,” says Petplan Co-Founder and Co-CEO Natasha Ashton. “At Petplan, we know that keeping pets fit is the first step toward a healthy life, but we also know you can’t always see the bumps in the road. In fact, one in three pets will require unexpected veterinary care each year, and every six seconds, a pet parent is faced with a vet bill for more than $1,000. That’s where pet insurance can help, by offering peace of mind that should your pet get injured or fall ill, you’ll have help getting your four-legged friend back on her paws – and back to the gym!”
By partnering with Petplan, K9 hopes to raise awareness of the under-insured nature of American pets. To date, just 1% of the nation’s 93 million cats and 3% of the nation’s 83 million dogs are currently insured (compared to about 30% in the UK). But the numbers are rising. Petplan’s success is indicative of the industry’s rapid growth in the U.S., which has been fueled by cutting-edge advancements in veterinary medicine, rising costs for treatments and the changing attitudes of many American pet parents – in fact, most view their pets as four-legged members of the family!
Petplan policies offer the most comprehensive coverage in the industry, covering all accidents and injuries, including hereditary and chronic conditions as standard, and without additional fees or add-ons.
Pet parents have the flexibility to choose their deductible and co-pay to create a plan that fits their needs precisely, so the family budget can stay as protected as the family pet. To learn more about Petplan’s dog and cat insurance policies, or to get a free quote, visit www.GoPetplan.com.
