We have an english bulldog and were told to get insurance (Trupanion was recommended by breeder) so we did. Our first dog, we had NO idea how much medical expenses would amount to. Our dog is great, but she has had eye surgery, skin infections and pnemonia several times. Trupanion has covered 90% of all of it! Payments and claims have been fast and easy, and the customer service has been kind and helpful. I would recommend this insurance company to everyone with a pet.
