Veterinary Pet Insurance

Pet insurance is becoming much more popular! Insurances are not "one sizes fits all" so do some research on what will work best for you, your pet, and your budget. Please be cognizant of pre-existing conditions and enrollment waiting periods!

Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) - The oldest pet insurance provider offering defined benefit plans for illness, injury, and wellness. Their published schedule lets you know what you will get back for a given condition. Check them out first.

Pet’s Best - started by a former officer at VPI offering a PPO style reimbursement schedule.

Trupanion - more for accidents than wellness plans, but increased coverage for juvenile and congenital diseases. Very easy to get a quote. Several advantages over other plans.

Embrace Pet Insurance - covers accidents and illnesses with an option to add in wellness coverage

Pet Insurance Review - pretty much a yelp.com for pet insurance. Owner based reviews of the many insurance companies

There are many other providers out there! Here is a comparison chart with FAQ's by DVM 360.
