Out of 10

Just before Mom died of cancer in 2007, one of her last request was that we take good care of her toy poodle Pippin. We have done our best, and last year, as Pippin was about to turn 13, I decided to buy health insurance to make sure Pip can always have the best care. Many companies would not insure a dog of her age, but Pets Best did. She has since developed glaucoma, & after the $100 deductible, they have covered 80% of the cost of a specialist, an animal ophthalmologist, and 80% of the eye drops, which are expensive. It's obviously an ongoing condition, so it's nice to know PB has my back. The premium did almost double (from $35 to $70/month) after her 14th birthday, but I understand the increased risk at this age. Pets Best is helping me not only keep my promise to my mom, but also helping me take care of my 4-legged daughter I love so much! Jack Bowen, Fort Worth, TX

I have been a dog owner for over 40 years. Previously with VPI. They were the go to pet insurance company in the '80s but founder, Jack Stephens, DVM started Pet's Best. I can not begin to say enough fantastic things about the company. They make it easy for you to take proper care of your dog in minor issues or big issues as I am going through with our dog now. If not for them, the decisions we are making to get him better would be costly. Their help is the silver lining in dark and gloomy day. just like car insurance, you wouldn't EVER want to be caught without it! Get the best policy you can afford. It is very hard to plan what illness will strike your cherished, loyal loved one...and that goes for people too!
