After spending over $3000.00 in medical bills in the first six months after rescuing our female Airedale puppy, we decided to look into pet insurance. Libby had an expensive knack for irritating older dogs and swallowing large rocks. I talked to other dog owners, pet supply retailers and veterinarians, but no one could recommend a reliable insurance company. I read through all the information on websites, compared plans and decided Trupanion was the best fit and the best price for our needs. Two months after enrolling Libby she had an appointment for a shot. We mentioned to her veterinarian that she sometimes limped after long walks. One x-ray and two more veterinarian consultations later, we were told that Libby needed bilateral hip replacements. When I told the surgeon that we had hip dysplasia coverage on Libby, he was skeptical, saying pet insurance companies always find a way to not pay claims. Trupanion processed the claim quickly and paid 90% of the claim after the $500.00 deductible. Everyone at Trupanion was friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any pet owner.
