Meet The Founder

Dr. Jack Stephens, DVM

Pet insurance founder and president

As a veterinarian and pet champion, I started the pet insurance industry in the United States back in 1980 because I wanted EVERY pet to always receive the best care.

After early retirement, I decided to create Pets Best as a lasting contribution to my lifelong goal of serving the pet owner and the veterinary profession in general. I felt that the country needed a pet insurance company that was predictable in paying claims and satisfying its policy holders. When you review the generous benefits in our policies, I'm sure you will agree. By taking the lessons I learned in founding the largest pet insurance company in the United States in 1982, I have reinvented the very best in pet insurance — Pets Best.
