Trupanion is waste of money!

Out of 10

Unless your dog is totally healthy and hasn't been sick prior 18 months don't waste your time. They ask for years worth of vet records. If any illness even unrelated claim will be denied

I'm not sure how true that statement is for Trupanion. I had them for the last 4 years and my dog was seriously ill prior to enrolling. He had a spinal issue and for those reasons his spine was never covered but when he came down with Cancer and an enlarged prostate Trupanion paid 90% of all his treatment for the medications, the subcutaneous fluids when his kidney's went bad and for all the alternative treatment like acupuncture he received. They were a great company. If he had lived longer then would have even covered his prescription food.
As a former customer (only left because my dog passed away) I know they cover things that were not preexisting and they were definitely not a waste of money for me. I never broke even but what they were able to help me do was extend my dog's life and keep him comfortable until the end.

My advise is talk with one of their phone experts to see what your chances of coverage are. Sure my boy's spine wasn't covered but when he got that tumor they covered their promised 90%.
