I heard about VPI back in 2001 after my dog had surgery. I first purchased a policy for my American Bulldog as a puppy back in 2002. Over his 9 years VPI was excellent with their service and especially their timely manner in getting my claims processed. I just purchased a new policy for my newest American Bulldog. This policy is even better than the one I had before, but even more affordable. I tell everyone I know who has a pet about VPI. They have saved me thousands of dollars over the years. Thank you VPI.
