we are airedale people and have always rescued them. Winston is my fifth and for the first time we decided to get him insured, not sure why this one and not the others, but was recommended by my vet thatVPIi was the best because of what they covered and how quickly they paid. Every time i contacted them they always were very helpful and very caring, even sending out birthday cards for my pet. I had a situation where it became necessary to used them, glad i had the insurance. My bill was around $700. and after my deductible was paid within 2 weeks. Like humans protect your family with insurance.
