VPI is wonderful - my first policy for Roma (German Shepherd)was amazing - I had the cancer rider and when she developed Multiple Myeloma, I was able to afford treatment w/VPI policy. She passed in 2006 and today Bella turns 4. Also a GSD. I had a policy on her the day I brought her home @ 8 weeks. Knowing VPI is protecting Bella and processes claims quickly and is a total relief.
