As an RVT, I see lots of pets go untreated, due to cost (more so in these hard times). With all the better pet insurance companies coming out, we have really embraced the idea of pet insurance and have moved full throttle educating our clients. We recently meet the rep for Trupanion, Robert Segura. He came in to talk to the staff about his company. We decided to try it out, as well as there offer of the first month free for our clients. About a week later we had a client come in with a healthy 8 week old puppy. We gave her, Tiny is her name, her first set of vaccines as well as, strongly, encouraged them to start her pet insurance, they signed up the same day. Less then a week later Tiny came back to us sick with Parvo. Immediately we call Robert, being this is our first claim. Robert was very prompt in helping us get started. Come to find out the client did not sign up correctly, and did not have the first month coverage. Robert went above and beyond for us and Trupanion will cover Tiny even though the client did not sign up correctly. As an insurance company this is a great good faith gesture. Most companies look for any way to "get out" of paying anything. We are very pleased to have found Trupanion and highly recommend it to everyone.
