I purchased my new Pomapoo Bentley from a breeder I located through NextDayPets.com. There was an advertisement and I link for a 30 day FREE trial of Trupanion pet insurance on site for when I got my new puppy. I have had a number of dogs and cats - a number of which have had MAJOR illnesses - and I had always wanted to look into pet insurance. This seemed like the perfect chance! I signed up easily over the phone, and - what do you know - within my first week of ownership, Bentley started vomitting for a full day. I rushed him to an emergency clinic at midnight, and then he was transferred to my regular vet in the morning. Luckily, it turns out that he must have just eaten something that upset his tummy, but it took a number of tests & intreveneous fluids to get us to that answer. My vets willingly filled out the claims forms & faxed them to Trupanion for me.Within the span of a week, I had gotten a notice of receipt of claim, claim processing, and claim completion!! What a pleasant suprise!! Needless to say, I have signed up to continue my coverage after the FREE trail ends!! What a wonderful value and priceless peace of mind for my new baby boy!
