Thank you VPI for Being There When We Need You

Out of 10

My dog Juba recently suffered a fractured molar, we have no idea what happened and it must have happened that day while we were at work. When I got home around 6:00 p.m. it was immediately obvious something was wrong. Juba's tooth was broken in multiple pieces but all of the pieces were intact.

The online account lets you pull up claim forms customized for each pet with all of your account information, so the amount of information needed is really minimal. Also, they now accept claims via e-mail which is AWESOME. The treatment date was Monday 8/20/12 and I e-mailed the claim form with attached receipts the same day. The check was cut on Tuesday 8/28. Out of $501.91, I was reimbursed $467.76. So my total out of pocket was only $34.15. (In December 2012, I had a tooth removed and it cost me a LOT more than that with dental insurance so I wish I could use VPI for my dental care lol !!!) I know that the expense for pet insurance cannot always be a priority for a lot of people. But for
