Trupanion launched in the US in 2008, having started in Canada. Their founder, Darryl Rawlings, first experienced the need for pet insurance as a teenager, when his family couldn’t afford a routine operation for their poodle, Mitzy. At just two years old, they lost her.
As a company full of dog and cat lovers (with an office full of their furry friends), Trupanion has built up a reputation as a trusted pet insurance provider. Working with veterinarians, Trupanion designed a policy so that other pet parents wouldn’t have to go through what Darryl’s family did. In 2020, the company announced that they had insured over 500,000 pets in America, and paid out over $1 billion in claims. Here at Petted, we can vouch for their ease of use, speed of payment and compassion for your beloved pet first-hand.
Trupanion can also, in some cases, pay your vet directly to avoid out-of-pocket expenses for you.
If you like simplicity, you’ll like Trupanion with its single comprehensive plan. If you like to customize, you might not. Everyone will like that it provides 90% coverage from birth to 14 years old.Read our full review
I signed up to Trupanion a while ago now but after chatting with various friends and colleagues I’ve realised they’re really not that great. Their prices when compared to other popular insurers are through the roof! I won’t be staying.
Trupanion pay your vets directly
I’m lucky in that my veterinary surgery uses Trupanion’s software which means they will pay my vet fees directly and I don’t have to wait to be reimbursed. I chose them for this reason as I don’t have a lot of money. I would recommend them for this reason.
Trupanion Paid for Itself!
After losing my last dog to bloat I was unwilling to get another dog without having pet insurance. I did a lot of research and found that for the issues most common to my breed are expensive ones that can require extensive and expensive treatment. We opted for Trupanion for their per issue lifetime deductibles. It paid for itself and then some the first year, when our new dog swallowed a stuffed animal and had to have a bowel resection. They were easy to work with and got us paid back in a timely fashion. I’m very happy I went with my gut and got our boy insured.
Wish the insurance would cover regular vaccines n need to add another pet. Wish the price was more economical
I have not utilised this insurance yet but pay 1200.00 a year for little coverage
