I recently insured my pet after reviewing all the pet insurance
companies offering product in Canada. Vet Insurance seemed the best
value at the time and I joined up. About 10 days later, my dog was run
over by a car. The vet bills came to $1950 and I submitted the claim
expecting about 90% of the amount. What I got back was 44% of the
claim, as they said they do not cover Veterinarin charges or
hospitalization costs. Do they expect you to take your dog to a
Dentist? Feel the policy is very misleading. Just wanted to share with
those who are about to insure their pets.


Did you read the policy? Does it really say that?

You mean VPI? They have huge numbers of exclusions. It's cheap, but you get
what you pay for. I've got insurance with PetCare, and I'm expecting my
first reimbursement shortly. We'll see what the total turnaround time is.
They're supposed to pay 100% after a $50 deductible.

I don't think they have VPI in Canada.

It's cheap?! I'm paying about $600.00 a year for three cats, that's
almost as much as my own insurance.

I'd be interestedto know when you do find out.

Interesting, I have cancelled my policy with Vet Insurance and bought
a new policy with Pet Care. Hope you are right about them
