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
No one beats Trupanion
My PTSD/balance dog has osteosarcoma and the cost of trying to treat it and extend his life is insane but Trupanion has been his champion throughout it all.
They direct paid his oncologists and radiologists while we were literally standing in the hospital and pre-approved procedures for hospitals who don’t do direct pay.
24/7, they are they are there to answer questions or just talk to you and cry with you.
We have used Trupanion since 2009 and will keep using them forever.
If not for their help, heart and crazy fast service, we would have lost hope long ago.
Truly changing veterinary care for our dogs & cats!
We have 4 pets covered by Trupanion. The customer service, coverage and claims experience has been world class. They’ve extended coverage to everything unexpected for Reese whom we enrolled as a puppy, and best part is we don’t need to wait for reimbursement because they work with both our primary and local ER vet for payment to them at checkout with their payment portal! I mean, Reese’s claims are legit processed in 30 seconds with a claim decision while i’m standing in the lobby – now that is peace of mind!
Trupanion is a great pet insurance to have, at least in my experience. They let you choose what percentage to pay and they have great customer service. I would recommend Trupanion to anyone for sure.
Now, they do have a little problem with their app, but its easily resolved by calling
Solid compnay with good history
Turpanion has a soldi history in the insurance world- and they lock in the premium at the tim eyou sign up so your monthly rate will never go up. I signed my puppy, June Bug, up when she was only 2 months old so her rate will stay the same for life, even when she is older and may need more vet visits. They cover most conditions and give me peace of mind that no matter what happens I will be able to take care of my dog.
I have been using trupanion for about 4 years now and it has helped me out so much it is affordable and I love the no coverage caps
