Dangerous Christmas Gifts for Pets
The holidays make for a fun and exciting time of…
After our co-founder, Brent, had to put his dog Midnight down in 2003, he knew he wanted to find a way to help pet parents take financial considerations out of the conversations about veterinary care. Together with his friend and colleague Lansdon, they started PetFirst the next year in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Today, PetFirst is one of the fastest-growing pet health insurance administrators in North America, and we’ve helped thousands of families purchase insurance coverage to pay for their pets’ veterinary care. We recently relocated to a larger headquarters to expand with our growth.
We come to work every day excited to create compelling, helpful pet insurance products and services that offer a solution for every family. We try hard to bring you the best policies on the market and to include you in the conversation about your pet’s care. It’s our mission to imbue our product with financial and emotional value for every customer, associate, and partner. We think big and dream bigger, but our number one priority is doing right by you and your pet.
