10/10   quick service and comprehensive coverage
We received checks back within days of submitting claims. We've had no issues getting the help with our dog's emergency care which is just what we had expected. I orbitally worked in reception for a multi specialty and emergency care vet hospital, so I was able to see Trupanion's excellent service and coverage in action before purchasing our policy.

2/10   Pet insurance IS A MUST... but beware...
My dog needed a $10,000 an emergency back surgery. I had been a TRUPANION member for 4 years. I needed preapproval from them before anyone would help my dog. The entire ordeal became totally about money as my dogs nervous system began to slowly give out. First his back legs, then front, loss of tail movement, inability to control bladder and next were his lungs. This happened over a course of 5.5 hours while trupanion decided whether or not his surgery qualified. I KNEW IT QUALIFIED WHEN I CALLED BECAUSE THIS SITUATION WAS THE EXACT REASON I GOT HIM COVERAGE. His breed is prone to back problem as they age and he is 11. Even though I had ALL his medical records from adoption (1.5 years old) till current day on hand and ready to go they still looked for a reason to deny him. They eventually paid $8000 of the $10,000. They claim to pay for 90% of the bill but they find ways to shift as much of the cost onto you as possible. In the end they took a $6500 hit by agreeing to cover my dog (after you add how much I paid in premiums over the years, deductible, etc). They would have made a $3000 profit off of us if my dog had died. I can only assume the 5.5 hour wait for approval occurred for that reason. After agreeing to fulfill their end of the deal we both signed for, their rep threatened recourse if they later find a preexisting condition that could have led to the surgery. Then he promised my next claim would require more health history proof making my next claim even more stressful. So I'd love to say thank you for saving my dogs life to trupanion... I'd also like to say that should any of their children be put in a similar situation that their health insurance provider show more respect, compassion and effort than they showed us. PUT PLEASE I URGE YOU TO CHOOSE SOMEONE ELSE TO PROTECT YOUR BEST FRIEND!!!! I wish I had.

10/10   I love trupanion!
Trupanion is the greatest pet insurance provider ever! They are quick, efficient, and cover just about everything! Anything that isn't covered is clearly listed in their exclusion section. Payments are issued same day or within a few days. They also have great customer service with friendly ppl always available and knowledgeable.

10/10   Great Rates and claim efficiency!
I 1st used PetFirst in 2011 and it has the most uncomplicated claim process and access to the entire process online as well as good policies and prices! I am 65 and my dog is 11! He can walk again after having been paralyzed at 5 years(Dachsund /Mix, had dental issues when I got him, immune issues with a (mild)mange leaving bald spots as well as cardiomyopathy so we've seen our share and PetFirst has been there for us and I would not take for his love, play, and attitude for anything!!

10/10   Best Pet Insurance Company Out There!
I'm so glad I signed my mini-dachshund up for Trupanion as soon as I got her eight years ago. Unfortunately, despite giving her the best care in the world, she has had various ailments which have necessitated claims. Trupanion has been wonderful throughout the years. They have covered everything and been very prompt and friendly and caring. I recommend them to everyone - in person and on several pet pages I belong to on Facebook. Everyone should have pet insurance for their pet, especially with Trupanion. Thank-you so much for always being there for Cassie and I.
