Did a lot of research before insuring my chihuahua pup with Trupanion six years ago. Worth the effort! I am a retired United Healthcare Director of Quality Management,and I have high and exacting standards when it comes to healthcare excellence for myself, my family and my companion animals. Trupanion has always met or exceeded them for Yoda. Claims processed promptly, often within hours, check cut and mailed within a couple business days. Oh, and super customer service--courteous, concerned, informed. Last visit to my vet, staff told me they were now recommending Trupanion as a first choice in pet insurance.
