Pet First

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 most reccommended health insurance administrators in North America, and we’ve helped tens of thousands of families purchase insurance coverage to pay for their pets’ veterinary care. 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.
