Pet Insurance Review

Review of the Top 7 Pet Insurance Providers

Pet Insurance coverage sure has changed a lot since we bought our first policy in 1999. Luckily, for the most part, it has gotten a lot better. We researched and reviewed the seven companies below. Costs and coverage vary, and we are sharing what we were quoted for our dog for comparison. What is best for you might not be the same for another pet owner.

Our objective is for this information to help you make an informed decision, and regardless of which policy you choose, we feel confident in saying coverage from any of these companies is better than no coverage at all.
