Pet Insurance

Listed below are the two pet health insurance companies with which we are the most familiar.  These are provided as a service to our pet owners, and no endorsement of any company is made by listing them on our website.  There are other companies offering pet health insurance which we are not aware of.  Please let us know if you are familiar with other companies providing good pet health insurance.

Trupanion Pet Insurance
The second-largest pet health insurance company in North America, Trupanion provides pet health insurance for dogs and cats. Their website provides online policy quotes and information about their coverages. Trupanion is unique in that they have only one policy - full medical and surgical coverage in case of accident or illness. They do not provide wellness plans or cover routine things like vaccines, preventative health blood work, or spay and neuter surgeries. They cover only the things you probably didn't budget for.

VPI Pet Insurance
The original pet health insurance company, VPI provides pet health insurance for dogs, cats, and exotic animals.  Their website provides online quotes, information about policies available, and some health care information, as well as a link for policy owners to log into their accounts.
