Trupanion insured pets lead longer, happier lives*. The Trupanion policy provides best-in-class medical insurance coverage for your pet that can be used at any veterinary hospital in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico – ensuring your pet is protected wherever you may be. Trupanion is the only provider than can pay your veterinarian directly at the time of checkout. This benefit helps you from having to fill out extensive claims paperwork or wait to be reimbursed. A Trupanion Pet insurance policy has unlimited payouts on claims. They do not increase rates for filing claims. While some providers may drop coverage when a certain number of claims are filed, Trupanion never will. The Trupanion policy does not increase rates just because your pet ages and their policy allows you to enroll your pet from birth for true lifelong coverage for your pet.   *‘Based on a December, 2020 Trupanion study analyzing third party hospital claims data comparing pets insured with a Trupanion policy to pets without a Trupanion policy. Trupanion is a registered trademark owned by Trupanion, Inc.  Underwritten in the United States by American Pet Insurance Company and in Canada by Omega General Insurance Company.

Easy & Fast

Our one year old Whippet had a horrible accident and his rear leg was badly injured. He had several trips to the Vet to repair the injury. This was my first experience with submitting a claim. After getting our Vet to complete the forms, we faxed the documents for processing. Within a short period of time, the checks were in the mailbox. We are really glad we selected Trupanion for our dog's insurance.

Doesn't cover Ear Infections

I have paid my policy on time every month for nearly 2 years. I have never had to use their insurance, until recently my Chow Mix had an ear infection. Keep in mind, I have NEVER placed a claim on my pet. I sent in my claim for his ear infection. It took 2 weeks to review my claim with a result ending in NO COVERAGE?! I am so confused, why wouldn't an ear infection be covered? I understand they don't cover the exam, but what about the treatment? So basically I have had a policy that I have never used and when I attempted to use it, they won't cover something as simple as an ear infection.

Trupanion has been a "true financial companion"

In November, we rescued our first puppy, Katie. She is a beautiful beagle-mix, so sweet, and healthy (so we thought.) I am NOT a fan of insurance, but ourvet recommended Trupanion and they were offering a 30-day free trial, so we signed up. Just at the end of the trial period, Katie developed cherry eye, and we continued with the insurance to see how it would work. It has been four months now, and Trupanion has been a "true financial companion" for us. Within a few days of submitting a claim, we receive an email letting us know they received it, then an email that it's been approved, and then a check in the mail a week later. We (unfortunately) have had several claims in the last 3 months, and Trupanion has been efficient and responsive. Having a sick puppy is stressful enough. Knowing that 90% of the health bills are being covered helps alleviate some of that stress. THANK YOU!
