I have been with VPI for many years. I have an 11 year old mixed breed dog and a 6 year old Siamese cat. Luckily the cat has been healthy and I have not have many claims. However I do have peace of mind knowing I will always be able to provide proper veterinary care if needed. For my dog which is the best dog in the world, but...he has been expensive. He has allergies and has had not one but two torn ACL surgerys. One in 2005 and one in 2010. This is an expensive surgery and lengthy recovery but I was able to do the surgery and focus on his aftercare and not focus on the expense; which provided a lot of comfort. In addition he has had surgery for bladder stones. I never like making a claim because that means something is wrong with my pets health but I know that I can take care of them.
