Pethealth insurance is the leading provider of pet insurance in North America.
It is the largest provider in Canada and the second largest in the United States
Pet health is a corporation that insures pets under many different insurance names such as 24petwatch, Pet protect, Shelter care … to name a few.
When I first started researching pet insurance, I kept noticing the name pet health on many different web sites. To understand why it was mentioned so often, I realized that it’s a publicly traded company and trades on the TSX as PTZ for about $1.35.
It’s pretty big company! Right now 200 500 dogs or cats are insured by a pet health insurance program. Since they started they have paid out $125million in vet fees!
They are also the largest seller of microchips in Canada and one of the largest in the States. Starting 2003, they have had 3.5 million pets registered with 24petwatch which has microchip identification.
The company serves 49 states and all 10 provinces, and even have plans for the UK!
