The amount of the purchase, as well as possible transport costs, will be at your expense. The supply of food for the animal may be limited due to the lack of a supplier in the area where you are located or because the service is linked to minimum purchases in terms of quantity or amount

Petplan's Call Centre veterinarians cannot diagnose or prescribe treatment, and their help is not a substitute for a visit to your regular veterinarian. Veterinarians answer questions about your pet's triage to help determine if your pet needs immediate veterinary intervention. Petplan Call Centre is a pet telehealth service available to Petplan policyholders. It is not insurance or a benefit of your insurance policy.
