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.

Great, fast service

This is the first time we've had pet insurance and so far it paid off and been a good experience. They are quick to respond to claims without a lot of red tape to dig through!

hello there. I love love love trupanion. So far they are great. They cover 90% of the bill. But do not cover yearly vaccinations, the initial vet fee to check out your pet ie. mine is $47.00, and they also in canada do not cover the taxes which is unfortunate, but their reason behind it is justifiable. We took our dog in on a monday and after faxing off the paperwork that day I recieved an email stating it had been recieved and will be reviewed. That thursday I got an email saying that it have been processed along with the break down of whats covered, whats not, and how much the cheque will be made out for. And the following monday (just one week later) I got the cheque in the mail. Very very impressed. Thanks Trupanion.

I joined Trupanion and have not regretted it. My dog came down with persistent pneumonia a few months after becoming insured. I was slightly concerned about submitting a claim so early, but Trupanion paid 90% of his fees, totaling approximately $3000, no deductible. It was simple, fast, and fair. We aren't out of the woods yet with his pneumonia, but it gives me great peace of mind that I can give him the care he deserves and that Trupanion is an honest insurance company. An insurance company with integrity, who knew!
