Editorial Reviews

Review

"The information presented is extremely helpful and easy to understand. This one book contains all of the information that you need to make the correct decision. I recommend it to pet owners and potential pet owners wanting to be proactive in the care of their pet."
--Dee Dee Davis - Cordova, TN

"Dr. Kenney reminds us that all too often pet owners are unprepared for unexpected medical expenses. That is why I started pet insurance for pets in the U.S. to provide pet owners the option of always being prepared financially when the unexpected and expensive happens. Dr. Kenney provides practical, savvy advice on finding the best pet insurance for you and your pet."
--Jack L. Stephens DVM - Founder of VPI and Pets Best pet insurance companies

"In this volatile and uncertain economy, the veterinary community must encourage early preventative medical and dental care that helps their pet friends live longer, happier, and healthier lives. What better way to put this philosophy into practice than by encouraging a comprehensive pet health insurance plan for pet owners. Dr. Kenney has provided the veterinary community a valuable read regarding how to understand, navigate through, and encourage your team members to promote and utilize pet insurance."
--Barden Greenfield, DVM, Dipl.AVDC - Board Certified Specialist in Dentistry

"This book is a valuable resource for both veterinarians and pet owners. The information provided by Dr. Kenney will enhance awareness regarding the costs of veterinary care and help to reduce the detrimental impacts of this issue on veterinarians, pet owners, and our beloved animal companions. Ideally, all veterinarians should provide this book to their clients to empower them to facilitate the best medical care available for their pet's lifetime."
-- Barry Kipperman, DVM, DACVIM - Internal medicine specialist

"As medical insurance for cats and dogs has become more mainstream for responsible loving pet owners in North America, Dr. Kenney's book is an important resource to help pet owners decide which will be the best company to support them throughout the life of their pet."
-- Darryl Rawlings, Founder and CEO - Trupanion Pet Insurance

"As a Veterinarian who truly values medically insured pets, I found this to be a very helpful resource for pet owners. It is a great roadmap for owner's to understand the array of products that are available to them and the importance of having their pet medically insured. This would also be a fantastic book for any veterinarian to read who hasn't realized how important it is to protect our ability to practice high-quality medicine in the future when service costs are getting so high and technology is advancing so rapidly."
-- Dr. Heather Steyn, Owner, Advanced Animal Care of Colorado

"As an ER vet, I've had to euthanize literally thousands of pets due to finances, and I'm sick of it. There's always been a big disconnect between what veterinary medicine can do for animals to keep them healthy, or even alive, and what it actually does do - largely because of out-of-pocket expense for care. Pet insurance makes it so pet owners can say "yes" to caring for their pet's medical needs rather than have to euthanize them due to money. Dr. Kenney's no-nonsense, impartial guide to pet insurance gives pet owners the information necessary to make an informed decision about life-saving insurance for their pets and lets them know exactly how to go about getting the best policy for their pets."
--Dr. Tony Johnson, DACVECC - board certified emergency and critical care specialist

-Dr. Tony Johnson, DACVECC - board certified emergency and critical care specialist

"Pet insurance is an important part of the financial preparedness plan that I recommend for pet owners. Yet the decision of which company and which plan to go with is rarely a “one size fits all” choice. In his book, Dr. Kenney provides a comprehensive and extremely helpful overview of the pet insurance landscape for pet owners. Kudos to Dr. Kenney for producing a resource that will provide clarity and help answer questions as people explore their pet insurance options."
--Dr. Jason Nicholas, President and Chief Medical Officer, Preventive Vet

This book is a great tool for anyone looking to understand the complexity of insurance in the simplest, step based way. I have no doubt that pet owners will make more informed choices after reading this book.
--Laura Bennett, Founder and CEO, Embrace Pet Insurance

Pet Health Insurance: A Veterinarian’s Perspective is a thorough guide to today’s pet health insurance and will be informative to both pet owners and veterinarians. From the introduction, which explains the evolution of the industry, to the informative text with the 53 unique quick-response (QR) codes, which allows readers to listen to experts on various topics via their smart phones, to the reference section at the end of the book, Dr. Kenney presents a comprehensive guide in simple terms. The book covers all topics of today’s pet insurance industry, including sections that explain insurance terms and policies, how to make a claim, and reimbursement of owners. The author explains the important and often misunderstood difference between the man-aged-care insurance model used in human medicine and the fee-for-service insurance model used in veterinary medicine. The disappointment of pet owners and veterinarians with pet insurance during the early years of the industry is acknowledged and discussed, along with the many advances and improvements that have been made in recent years. The author does not endorse any particular company and encourages readers to use the supplied Pet Insurance Toolkit QR to compare the policies of different companies side by side. I encourage anyone who wants to understand the current pet insurance industry to read this informative book.
--Rex C. Riggs, DVM (March 15, 2017 Journal American Veterinary Medical Association)
