Without our knowledge, our 11 month old Golden Retriever accidentally swollowed a stone about the size of a small egg. We noticed his behaviour was off and decided to take him to our Vet. An x-ray revealed the mass and he had to have immediate surgury at the emergency/referral clinic. Thankfully, everything turned out fine. Given the situation, I'm sure any pet lover would do their best to aid their pet and absorb the cost. This was a large bill with very little time to decide. Knowing we had the insurance made the whole situation much easier to deal with. Trupanion approved our claim very quickly and we received payment about one week later. We have had many pets over the years but this is the first time we have had pet insurance. It was a recommendation by our Vet. My conversations with Trupanion during the initial sign up period were informative and have since proven to be honest and accurate. We recently signed up my daughter's new cat and I can say with certainty that I would never be without pet insurance again.
