Overall pleased

Out of 10

I took my dog in for signs and symptoms of heat stroke. Since this situation was emergent I googled the closest animal hospital and brought him in immediately (my regular vet is a 45min drive). No time for shopping around for services or reading reviews on vets. I burned through $200 in about 30 min. at this facility and was told that I could either take him home or transfer him to an overnight clinic to monitor and for DIC (a life threatening condition). I wasn't going to take my chances and I took him to the overnight clinic and spent about $900 for his stay, labs, fluids, medications and care. The next day I had to transfer him back to the other vet because the facility he was in was closing for the day! So he was back for monitoring which cost me about $100 for the day. During this time I called VPI and told them my dog's primary diagnosis and they told me the pay out was around $300 for that. This left me very uneasy and I felt that the insurance wasn't worth it at that time. I still submitted my claim which was a very easy process if you have requested all of the documentation done on your pet from the vet and an itemized receipt. About a month later I got a check in the mail from VPI and I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a reimbursement for approx. $900. Because of all the documentation I submitted in the claim they paid out for a secondary diagnosis and other problems that my dog faced as a result of the heat stroke. In total I paid about $1200 and was reimbur
