Pets Best was founded in 2005 by Dr. Jack Stephens, the "father" of the pet insurance industry in North America. As a practicing veterinarian in 1979, Dr. Stephens euthanized a dog named Buffy because her owners elected euthanasia instead of allowing him to diagnose and treat Buffy. Weeks later, Dr. Stephens ran into Buffy's owner at the store.
