Trupanion pets lead longer happier lives.1 Pets insured with Trupanion lived longer than pets without Trupanion because pet parents didn’t have to worry about the cost of the care their pet needed. Depending on the plan Trupanion covers up to 90% of eligible expenses, has unlimited payouts-always, and can pay your vet bill, within seconds, at time of checkout, so all you pay is your portion (anything not covered by Trupanion). They have transformed the way pet insurance handles claims by eliminating the reimbursement process. Trupanion was founded in Canada and provides bets-in-class coverage and is dedicated to helping pets we love get the care they need. They’ve been around for more than 20 years, making them experts and setting standards for the industry. One perk of this, and what they pride themselves on, is the amount they pay out to pet owners for each claim. Paying out more on the dollar than any other pet insurance provider. To date they have paid out $2 Billion in claims and have insured nearly 1 million pets. To put it simply, there is a reason why 98.7% of Trupanion members stay enrolled every month. 1Based 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. *Terms and conditions apply.

Awesome Service

My vet was actually able to bill the insurance company in advance and all I had to pay was the copay up front. Trupanion covered 90 percent of the cost. This helped us tremendously. I have had her on this plan for the last 2 years and this is the first time we needed to use it. I am so glad we chose trupanion.

Top Notch

I love Trupanion. I have a young Irish Setter that was diagnosed with IBS when she was about 7 months old. Lots of tests, special foods, very expensive. Trupanion covered at 90% on Vet bills and 50% on food. I'd turn a claim in on a Monday and usually I'd be reimbursed by Friday....their CS folks are friendly and helpful...I had VPI before but never understood what I'd be reimbursed...Trupanion is easy 90% on a non wellness visit. Simple, quick and easy to do business with...a 10 and I tell all my friends!!!

Excellent Service

Trupanion was there when we needed it. In the past when our pets had become ill, the vet bills would mount quickly. After a couple of trips to the vet cost us a few thousand dollars, my wife and I invested in a Trupanion policy. While we hoped we would never have to file a claim, we wanted to know that in the event that an unexpected emergency occurred, we would have financial support for the vet costs. Unfortunately one of our cats was stricken with acute leukemia. After two weeks of tests and blood transfusions, the only course of treatment left was to put our beloved Cleo to sleep. The loss of one of our pets was very difficult, but thankfully we had Trupanion and the vet bills did not add to the grief.

Great pet insurance

claims are paid fast. it covers most thingsonly complaint would be the fast rising premium rates. They have increased over 100% in the last 8 years. I don't believe it has to do entirely with rising vet costs as they have definitely not increased that much.

Monthly Cost

Monthly cost varies due to multiple factors including: species, breed, age at enrollment, gender, and postal code.


One simple plan covers new injuries and illnesses, hereditary, congenital, and chronic conditions—once the deductible is met, Trupanion pays 90% of the remaining invoice. To view a full list of inclusions and exclusions, check out our sample policy here.

Payout Limits

Unlimited lifetime payouts on eligible conditions with no payout limits-ever.


You can choose your deductible from $0 – $1000, in $5 increments, to fit your budget. Trupanion offers a lifetime, per condition deductible meaning that once the deductible is met for an eligible condition, you never have to meet it again. That condition is covered for life. This is great for chronic conditions that can span the entirety of a pet’s life such as allergies or cancer.

Age Limits

All pets under 14 years old can enroll. Once enrolled, pets stay insured regardless of age.

Waiting Period

Accidents: 5 days Illnesses: 30 days Other providers may have additional waiting periods for congenital conditions like hip dysplasia, Trupanion does not.
