No complaints on first claim

My flat-coated retriever had an episode of vomiting, infection of his prostate and bladder that require a visit to the ER as well as a followup with my regular vet. My claim was paid promptly and was what I expected. VPI made it easy.

Very happy with our VPI policies

We have the highest coverage plans for both of our dogs and every year they have paid for themselves in coverage we have received. From a couple emergencies to an ACL surgery and dental care, we get the full use from our plans and are very happy with them.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

I live in Manhattan and have 2 French Bulldogs. One of which has chronic bronchitis, as well as thyroid issues. Every time I submit a claim to VPI I am very disappointed. I never know if I am going to get 10% back or 80% back, but the majority of the time it is below 50%. Since my other dog had no pre-existing conditions, I moved over to Healthy Paws, and I couldn't be happier with them.

The best in any town VPI Pet Insurance

I have been a VPI member for over 20 years. All of my pets past and present have had/still using VPI pet insurance. I have been to the other pet insurance websites and compared the different rates but none compare to the prompness, and quality care that I get from VPI. Filing a claim is fast and easy. You can go online to their website and find the status of your claim. As long as I have my pet dogs I will always use VPI pet insurance.
