My 5yr old greyhound suffered from a negative reaction to the vaccine for leptospirosis. He required 5 days in ICU at the cost of over $5000. Due to his age and the fact that I had VPI pet insurance, I told the clinic to do everything to save him. Sadly he had to be euthanized on day 6 from massive internal bleeding. After suffering this trauma I found out that VPI only paid $400 for the diagnosis that caused all this expensive treatment in ICU. I had to get the doctor to send information to them and ask that they do the right thing as that was totally ridiculous. Final claim settlement was only $2000. I wanted pet insurance just so I could make the decision to save my dog no matter the cost and now I learned that VPI is NOT there when you need them most. Do NOT get insurance through them.
