1. Have your vet examine your pet
Within 30 days of signing up, have your vet perform a physical examination of your pet and mark whether the condition was present or not assessed. If your pet received a vet exam within 10 days before signing up, this exam may be used to fill out the form.

After your veterinarian examines your pet and completes the form, return it to us by fax, email or standard mail within 30 days. This form must be returned to Pets Best within 30 days of enrolling to be eligible for any waived waiting periods.
