As a veterinary professional, I have told pet owners for years to get insurance for their animals. I always said that it helps take the financial aspect out of deciding treatment plans for their members of the family.
Finally, I followed my own advice! I'm so glad I did. Trupanion honestly saved my dog and my family from potentially not being able to treat because of finances. Working in the field, I've adopted pets that had some issues, but none unmanageable. Luna has had allergies, and some skin issues. She is almost 6 and one morning she didn't want to eat breakfast. She always eats breakfast. I looked at her and thought she was a little pale so I took her with me to work. Turns out, she was very anemic, and her body was attacking both her red blood cells and platelets! Needless to say, this was a major life threatening medical emergency. Knowing that she had insurance made the decision to treat possible. She needed 2 blood transfusions, hospitalization, multiple meds, and constant monitoring. Everyone I talked to at Trupanion made the process easy, and let me focus on my baby.
Once my claim was submitted, I was reimbursed within a week! Now I know that I can provide the best care possible without draining my finances.
Luna's happy and still healing and I recommend Trupanion to everyone I know! Thank you for giving me and my family peace of mind! Wish I had done it years sooner!
