I must have had an angel on my shoulder the day I said yes to Trupanion Pet Insurance. I can't imagine the absolute horror of having to euthanize a family member because I could not afford a necessary medical procedure. I previously had another brand of insurance, but they don't pay anywhere near what is needed in emergency treatment. It was extremely distressing when my kitten almost died after ingesting an 18-inch piece of poultry string. We had no idea she had done this. After diagnosis at the emergency hospital, she had life-saving surgery and is back to normal. We call her our $5,000 kitty because that's what it would have cost without Trupanion who paid 90%. Trupanion was there to help us all the way and we received our checks within two weeks. I am telling everyone I know with pets to sign up with Trupanion so that the only thing they need to say when tragedy strikes is, "Go ahead, save my pet!"
