THEY STINK and I DROPPED MY DOGS COVERAGE

1
Out of 10

They tried to over double my pet coverage from $38 to $83...Their excuse is the rising cost of care for dogs...
BULL...I called up very aggrivated they tried to explain themselves with rising costs and I simply asked has the cost over doubled?? I could see a 10 or 15% hike but not almost 200%...So instead of my $38 a month they will get NOTHING..

Save your money and put it aside for a rainy day when your dog may need it...You'll be money ahead and the vets generally will work with you if you need to make payments for your best friend...Even with Trupanion you still have to pay for vet visits, shots, and such...I see no point in having it.

I apologize for the recent shock in your premium notification. We are currently in the process of bringing premiums up to date as they have not been updated in some areas since we began selling policies there nearly 4 years ago. This year, we reached a point at which we had enough data to bring premiums up-to-date with what they should actually cost.In the future, adjustments will occur in a more timely manner to reflect the actual cost of pet care for your individual pet (based on the averages of its breed, age at enrollment, geographical location, and deductible chosen). If the average pet like yours is receiving increased health care in a given time period, then you would see a slight increase, but if that pet on average has been generally healthy and making fewer trips to the vet then you would see a slight decrease. Premiums are directly based around the average pet like yours based on the factors mentioned above so when you see an increase in your premium, that is a sign that the average pet like yours is making more trips to the veterinarian.
