Trupanion pet insurance,
do not go home without it!
I say that since we took our life jacket to our vet for the first time, it was strongly recommended that we consider pet insurance. Our vet knew how much we have spent over the years taking care of our four-legged hairy children. He told us that this yellow lab puppy may be prone to cancer.
We looked at the literature he gave us and decided to join Trupanion and believe that it would give us "the biggest bang for our buck."

on Monday. Her blood work was done and her liver enzymes were significantly increased. We
was immediately referred to the Veterinary Referral Center (VRC). The ultrasound
showed liver damage and biopsy showed chronic hepatopathy secondary to

Nellie would cost $ 20,000 to $ 30,000 per month.
said it would be covered and we could have her medicine aggravated by one
pharmacy that worked with VRC. It reduced the cost to less than $ 300 / month.
Trupanion paid 90%, including her regular blood work.
Nellie was nine in September. Her monthly prescription is almost $ 90 per month. Trupanion covers it to 90%. Submitting claims via email is also quick and easy. They respond quickly with their decision on the claim. I will receive a check in the mail in less than a week.
Nellie is stable now, but I do not know what the future will bring her. I know that whatever happens, Trupanion is on our side. Every pet owner is obligated to themselves and their pets to have insurance to cover the unexpected.
