Chief Pet Insurance Officer with Dog

Since we first introduced pet insurance to the U.S. in 1982, VPI has helped countless people provide the best care possible for their pets.

It may surprise you to know that Nationwide has always been an integral part of VPI. As our underwriter since 1982, Nationwide has backed VPI policyholders from the very start. We were further bolstered by Nationwide's stability and strength when we became a wholly owned subsidiary in 2008.

Today, we're proud to announce that the entire Nationwide family of companies is becoming one company, one culture and one brand: Nationwide.

That means over the next several months, you’ll start seeing the Nationwide logo more frequently as we transition to this exciting new brand. But rest assured–you'll still enjoy the same great coverage and service you've come to expect.

In fact, things will only get better from here. That's because Nationwide is committed to being the leader in pet health financing, with new products and services designed just for pet lovers.

Above all, we stand behind the promise that Nationwide is on your side.
