One in three Fortune 500 companies offers workers a discount on Veterinary Pet Insurance as part of its employee benefit package.

Thousands of other companies also give employees a chance to buy discounted VPI insurance for their pets. VPI is the oldest and largest U.S. pet insurance company with 61 percent of the market and over half a million covered pets.

Among the Fortune 500 companies that offer the insurance are Procter & Gamble Co., Hewlett-Packard Co., Ford Motor Co., Walgreen Co., Lockheed Martin Corp., Boeing Co., FedEx Corp., Delta Air Lines Inc., Kellogg Co., MGM Resorts International, W.W. Grainger Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and Comcast Corp.

Some others include Home Depot Inc., Sears Holdings Corp., Abbott Laboratories, Pfizer Inc., American Express Co., AT&T Inc., Kohl's Corp., Staples Inc., Google Inc., Zynga Inc., Wells Fargo & Co., Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc., Deloitte & Touche, Hot Topic Inc., and Viacom/MTV.

To find out if your company offers VPI insurance, go to www.petinsurance.com, select employers at the top and type in the name of your firm.

Several other pet insurance companies sell insurance through employers, so you might need to ask your benefits manager if your company sells a specific brand.
