I purchased VPI when Biscuit was 3 months old and something just told me to buy the cancer rider. In 2012, Biscuit was diagnosed with Lymphoma and when my vet learned I had cancer coverage, he promptly referred me to a board certified oncologist. Now, a little over 2 years later, Biscuit is still with us and happy. VPI's coverage made it possible for her to undergo 2 years of chemo along with excellent supportive care. She has been feeling good almost the entire time and has not simply "had her life prolonged". She has had an excellent quality of life. During the past 2 years, we went on vacations and had fun with her creating more memories to cherish after she is gone. We never could have afforded to treat her without VPI. I cannot tell you what she has meant in the lives of our family and what VPI has meant as well. The key to satisfaction with Veterinary insurance, in my opinion, is knowing what you are purchasing and knowing what to expect. I educated myself and there have been no surprises with VPI. The staff has always been courteous and helpful when I have had questions. When I get another dog, I will purchase the major medical plan and superior coverage...it includes cancer as well. My mini Aussie, Star, has the superior plan with the major medical. While it would always be nice if they paid more, Biscuits's cancer costs were mostly covered by VPI. It has paid for itself many times over in my experience.
