Who are Pet Insurance Review?

Mike Hemstreet founded Pet Insurance Review in 2005 and since then has helped pet owners across North America and Canada compare pet insurance policies from a range of providers, so they can make an informed choice that suits their needs. 

Now Mike has passed the baton to us. Our mission is to protect and expand his original idea to inform pet parents about the importance of pet insurance and all the benefits it offers. We share his view that by providing information on specific insurer’s policy benefits and pricing, and by offering all pet parents the opportunity to share a review of their insurance company, we can empower the pet community and help everyone choose a policy that’s right for them.

We’re here to give pet parents a voice, to enable them to share experiences and help others make the right choices.

We’re here to help pets and their parents

Our vision is to build a site that helps owners enjoy a long and happy relationship with their pets. As well as helping to ensure pets receive the best possible veterinary care, we are committed to building a library of information to support pet parents with everything from selecting the right pet and spotting common ailments to ensuring their pet stays healthy in every stage of their life. 

We also want to help pets who are suffering, or still looking for their forever friend. If you visit an insurer’s website, request a quote or buy a policy via Pet Insurance Review, the insurer pays us a small amount for introducing you. That money allows us to invest in improving our site and online community, as well as enabling us to donate 5% of our total revenue to one of our chosen animal charities. Find out more about our work with charities.

 

We’re independent 

We operate independently, and over the years, we’ve brought together thousands of pet parents and created a collaborative resource for current and future pet owners across North America and Canada.

We do not pass the details of our pet parents to any insurer, unless you have asked us to by requesting a quote. If you decide to become part of our community, we would like to send you our newsletter or offers from selected third parties from time to time, but we will always respect your wishes and never pass your details on without permission.

We’re a family

Our aim is to provide a community for pet parents to come together and share their stories to help improve the lives of other pets and their owners. We also want to grow our social communities on Facebook and Instagram, as well as our reviews and site information, so we can all share the joy of being a pet parent.  

 

How are our reviews collected?

Each review on this site is the opinion of a pet insurance customer and does not reflect those of Pet Insurance Review. We cannot recommend one insurance policy, but we will do our best to provide all the information you need to make the best decision for you and your pet. 

Through our authentication process, we take several steps to make sure our reviews are legitimate. While we cannot guarantee the accuracy of every review, we believe users can obtain an accurate overview of an insurance company by looking at the cumulative effect of thousands of reviews.

 

We hope you enjoy all we have to offer!
