VPI Is An Investment Worth Having

Out of 10

I first signed up with VPI in 2001 when I adopted my first guinea pig. At the time, they were the only pet insurance that covered exotic animals so I signed up.

My guinea pigs developed bronchitis on an off (very common for these little critters) and I had to constantly take them to the vet. VPI covered for their treatments and reimbursed me right away for my medical costs. A few years later, I added a Bichon Frise to my family and added her to my policy. Years later my guinea pigs passed on and now all I have is my little dog. However, during the past 4 years my dog underwent many medical treatments (with medicine) because she was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart). VPI covered most of my costs and reimbursed me fairly quickly over the years. To my dismay, last month a cardiologist informed me that my little Bichon never had an enlarged heart and had been misdiagnosed. As you can imagine, I was both angry about the misdiagnosis and relieved that the medicine she took for 4 years had not had an adverse effect on her health. I can't be too angry at the vet who misdiagnosed her because he was trying to help my little dog and the cardiologist explained that it was human error; nonetheless, the cardiologist assured me my baby would continue to be fine. I thought of the four years of out of pocket money I had spent and then realized that VPI
