I received a one month free Trupanion policy from my vet. 2 weeks later my 6month old pup got diarrhea that he couldn't shake. He was getting dehydrated and I couldn't get enough water into him so I took him to the vet. He had to stay overnight and was ultimately diagnosed with a parasite that requires some pricey meds. Trupanion covered $1900 of the $2500 bill, I was impressed as I was expecting that a "free" trial would have me on the short end of the stick. The vet had put through a pre-authorization with the ins. co so I was aware that they would cover it which was reassuring as well.
