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.
