NOT RECOMMENDED by this veterinarian!

I am a veterinarian with coverage for 3 dogs and 3 cats through this business. I used to recommend them to everyone when they were PetFirst. After they were bought out by MetLife, things got much worse. They denied coverage for medications for my dog with congestive heart failure-- because my boss has been refilling them! Apparenly, their definition of "business partner" now includes anyone in your own practice. I am now having to go to a different practice, pay full price up front for visits, medications, etc, and then send them in. If nothing else, I was saving them quite a bit with my employee discount! Remember, if they'll do this to me, a veterinarian with a decade long set of policies who has recommended them hundreds of times to clients, what will they do to you?? Please use Trupanion instead.
