Why pet insurance?

Pet owners need insurance more than ever! The American Veterinary Medical Association estimates that the costs of veterinary services are rising twice as fast as the average of all other consumer spending (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, April 2008). Millions of households with pets need an affordable solution — one that helps provide financial protection and peace of mind.

Why Pets Best?

You can have confidence in our experience and reputation. We’re stable and reliable, with a growing list of satisfied clients.

Pets Best was founded in 2005 by Jack Stephens, DVM, a veterinarian who had previously started the nation’s first pet insurance company with a goal to end “economic euthanasia”. Using the knowledge he acquired from 25 years in the pet insurance industry, Dr. Stephens established a new standard in pet insurance with the creation of Pets Best.
