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. 

FACT! As well as the US and Canada, Trupanion offers pet insurance in Puerto Rico

Petted Review

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.

We compared a few plans with a few different insurers and decided to go with Trupanion, even though they weren’t the cheapest. I read a few reviews and got a good feeling about them. Well I’m glad I did because Trupanion have been fantastic. These people are real pet lovers. Great service!

Really happy with Trupanion. Was worried I hadn’t made the right choice as they weren’t the cheapest option out there but they’re paid me three claims in the past two years and each time the money has been reimbursed in three days. I cannot fault them!

Thank you for being a great insurer! I would have given five stars but I do think the prices are slightly high, but other than that it’s amazing.
