While I was "contemplating" signing up for pet insurance thru Trupanion, one of my dogs, Rocky, was poisoned while in my yard. The entire ordeal ended up costing me $8,000.00 by the time we were able to save him. I signed up with Trupanion immediately afterwards, and three weeks later my other Dog Star suffered a multiple fracture of his leg requiring several surgeries and totaling $5,000.00. Trupanion covered 90% of the cost! Don't put off insuring your pets. Without pet insurance I would have had to put Star down! I'm on a fixed income, but Trupanion gives me the Security to not fear the unexpected costs associated with my fur-kids.
