In December 2012 when our 5 yr old chocolate lab was diagnosed with Stage IV lymphoma we were devastated. As we were waiting during her first chemo treatment, I remembered we had purchased VPI when she was a puppy. She is a labrador and we all know how much they love to eat things, food and other things and so that is why we bought insurance. So as we were sitting there, I called VPI and asked about cancer treatments if they were covered and they said yes. I recently submitted my first 2 months expenses and VPI has paid 52% of the claims. This was a blessing because the chemo treatments are not cheap and chances are, she will be on them for quite a while.
