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
We just can’t say enough great things…
We just can’t say enough great things about Trupanion!! They are so easy to get in contact with and very fast with getting claims taken care of. We highly recommend Trupanion!!
Get Trupanion! You won’t regret it.
I decided to get Trupanion when I rescued my current dog since my last dog needed a few costly surgeries throughout his life. I am so thankful that I did. They have covered every issue that has come up with my dog so far including knee surgery, pneumonia and Ehrilichia. They work directly with my vet so I don’t have to take care of the claims and the approval is instant so I only end up having to pay what was not covered. I’m a huge advocate for Trupanion and encourage everyone I know to join when they first adopt a dog. It’s been a huge relief for me.
So glad I have Trupanion
Trupanion agents are always helpful and professional if I call with a question. The time between filing a claim and payment is quick. My cat has chronic pancreatitis so there are many claims. The insurance is surely a godsend for me because it pays 90% of my bills.
