My last pet of 10 years was an Italian Greyhound named Bailey. He had developed a serious chest infection that required surgery and extensive medication, which had become very expensive. After about 6 months he made a turn for the worse and he passed away.
I recently welcomed a new Italian Greyhound puppy into my family. His name is Murphy. I took Murphy to my veterinarian for his puppy check up. Knowing of the expense I incurred during Bailey’s illness, my veterinarian told me about Trupanion . After reading the information, I decided to sign Murphy up using the 30-day certificate with no waiting period.
Murphy now has medical insurance and is covered for all accidents and illnesses. Soon after making the first month premium payment,Murphy broke his leg. It was on a holiday so I rushed him to an Emergency Animal Hospital. To make a long story short, Trupanion came through like a champ.
I signed up for Trupanion May 21, 2014, I made my first premium payment June 20, Murphy broke his leg July 4 and they operated July 7. I notified Trupanion and they took it from there. They paid 90% less the initial exam, my deductable and my 10%. On July 14, Trupanion deposited their 90% into my checking--over $3,200.00. They will continue paying 90% until Murphy is released--unbelievable!I highly recommend Trupanion. They have been excellent to work with. Their staff are very courteous, friendly and caring. They also follow up to see how Murphy is doing. What more could you ask for? I give them an A+.
