How It Works

Pet insurance reimburses pet owners for veterinary costs, and works very differently than human healthcare. Choose the coverage, deductible & premium to fit your budget & needs. Pay a predictable premium; when your pet gets sick or hurt, visit the same vet you always use.

You pay the vet, send us the bill & we reimburse you according to your personalized plan, with the fastest payment times in the industry. No worrying about whether it will fit in your budget. No arguing with your vet about following an insurance company’s benefits schedule. PetFirst lets you put your pet’s health first.
