“With more than half a million insured pets in our database, we encounter a variety of fun and eccentric pet names,” said Curtis Steinhoff, director of corporate communications for VPI. “We’ve learned that while some of these names are assigned just for the laughs, many of these monikers hold a special meaning or story behind them. Dogs and cats are now viewed part of the family and these unique, yet specific, names mirror that.”
