My dog has had an illness that has required care for the past two years. I can't believe the cost of providing x-rays, blood work, specialist review of findings, etc. Without the Trupanion coverage we would have been in pretty desparate shape because the costs would have exceeded our ability to pay. My dog is my baby and there is no way that I could have handled anything but the best care for him. Thankfully with Trupanion I'm assured he will be taken care of.
