Banfield vs Pet Insurance
Banfield Optimum Wellness Plans are sometimes referred to as Petsmart Pet Insurance. In reality, Banfield Optimum Wellness Plans are contracts that give you a pre-determined number of vaccinations, office visits, diagnostic tests, and more, but they do not reimburse you for the unexpected, costly accidents and illnesses your pet can run into. Furthermore, you cannot use your Banfield plan at a non-Banfield veterinary hospital.
True pet insurance plans can be used at any veterinary hospital and they do cover unexpected accidents and illnesses.
