At 11 months old our Golden Retriever Puppy fell severly ill due to a foreign object being caught in his intestional track. We were advised he needed emergency surgery in order to have a chance at saving his life. We made the decision to move forward with the surgery hoping that our VPI insurnace would cover some of the costs incurred but fearful that these unexpected costs would take months to pay off. The surgery was performed, our puppy made a complete recovery and VPI truely lifted a huge weight off of our shoulders by covering every penny of this surgery. What an emotional process this was especially when relaizing that we made the best decision by going with VPI. We have spread the word of our experience to many and can not thank VPI enough for making these tough times much easier.
