Where can I get the best pet insurance in the country?

Hi Michelle– thanks for your email and question about pet insurance. As you may know, there are several companies that offer pet insurance. I believe there are 14 that offer coverage in the United States. It can be very difficult to evaluate insurance (car, health or whatever!).

What you can do is create a spreadsheet – and call them or check their websites. Check what the company covers, deductible, premium, percentage reimbursement, exclusions, what they offer in your state (many companies or particular policies are not available in all states), and monthly premium.

You can determine the limits of coverage that works best for your pet and your budget.

Best of luck!
