Prior to graduating from the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science, Jules Benson, BVSc, MRCVS, worked for a year as a wildlife volunteer in Egypt and also spent time working with sheep, cattle and horses in farms across England and Wales. Dr. Benson moved to the United States in 2004 and settled in Bucks County, PA, where he worked in a small animal practice.

In 2008, Dr. Benson joined Petplan in his current position, where he works diligently to help Petplan ensure that its policies cover the ever-evolving medical needs of their beloved pets.

A member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Dr. Benson also serves on the Board of Trustees for the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA) and is on the Board of Directors for 2nd Chance Rescue.

Dr. Benson is regularly consulted by a broad range of media outlets, including ABC, NBC, FOX, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, to provide pet health advice to pet parents nationwide. Additionally, he serves as veterinary editor for fetch! magazine, and is the editor of Petplan’s Vets for Pets blog.

When not involved in veterinary-related work, Dr. Benson enjoys music, movies and reading as well as cycling, Muay Thai kickboxing and serving as dad (and vet!) to a Chihuahua mix, four cats, three rats, one rabbit and a leopard gecko.
