After having been through cancer and chemotherapy with my basenji for 7 years, I decided that my next dog would definitely have some type of pet insurance. VPI has been wonderful. They are prompt and responsive to all of my and my Great Dane, Gracie's, needs. We only turned in routine care bills until last year, when Gracie was diagnosed with bone cancer in her front leg. Having known the cost of caring for a cancer dog previously, I went into a major panic attack. The folks at VPI were extremely sensitive and helpful in assisting me to determine what would be covered since I had both the basic and advanced plans. One year later, Gracie can still out run you - even if only on 3 legs! Thanks VPI!
