About Pet Insurance U

Hi, my name is Gatsby.

My parents started Pet Insurance U after pet insurance saved my life. Twice.

Even before I turned 2, my vet bills were near $25,000. My parents were scared they wouldn’t be able to afford to take care of me. But luckily, pet insurance saved me (and their bank accounts).

Now, their mission is to make sure that no pet parent has to worry about how to care for their pet because of finances.

And that no pet has to go without medical care because of high veterinary costs.

And most importantly, that economic euthanasia NEVER has to be considered.

Hopefully my parents have given you all the information you need to make an informed decision on pet insurance. Don’t forget to check out all our resources on pet health, too!

Thanks for visiting our site!
