Hartville Pet Insurance is a brand offered by Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group. Founded in 1997, Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group boasts being one of the original pet insurance providers. In 2006, Crum & Forster became the only partner of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) in the pet insurance industry. In 2017, the company became the only pet insurance provider to offer stand-alone health coverage for horses, which is under the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance brand.

Hartville Pet Insurance has its coverage plans listed, but there are a few missing details that would be beneficial for pet owners to know. Information about waiting periods, money-back guarantees, estimated costs, veterinarian specialists, emergency care, and the renewal process would be useful information to state on the main page. However, to find this information, pet parents have to either call, sign up for a quote, or view a sample pet insurance plan. Adding a “Frequently Asked Questions” section would also help to answer some of the more common questions people have when considering pet insurance.
While there is an online Member Center that allows pet owners to view all information pertinent to their coverage, there is no mobile app. This would be a useful feature for pet owners as they could easily login and view their information from their cell phone.
