Best Overall Vet Insurance Company

i work at a vet clinic, for which we solely support Trupanion for puppy/kitten pet insurance. Even though prices have increased alot, overall the company is quick with claims, and the no limit life time claims is a great bonus. Awaiting to see what the new owners bring to the table, so far so good. Just don't decrease your payout percentage you'll sadly turn into petsecure=:(

Forget Them for the BIG STUFF

I have had multiple pet policies with the AKC for my 4 dogs for YEARS This insurance is only good for the SMALL STUFF! When you truly need it, they will claim some NONSENSE and deny the claim or give you some line of garbage. Unfortunately, I needed the insurance and the AKC did NOT PAY as they claim they will. I STRONGLY suggest if you are purchasing insurance, and think you have a piece of mind knowing you have your beloved pet covered, THEY ARE NOT!!! I am taking the matter to the IL Dept of Insurance - Public Service Section. I ask you... do you want to deal with the AKC; and the added loss of your beloved pet and UNPAID Claims of over $8,000. You are best checking out an insurance company that pays an annual maximum WITHOUT a per incident restriction. For myself, there were 3 separate hospitalizations that the AKC is considering ONE INCIDENT and DENYING diagnostics as well. In the end I will see what the IL Dept of Insurance states, but BEWARE -- do you want to deal with this? Unexpected expenses when you are paying a high premium for YEARS and the loss of your beloved pet and these idiots?!

They wont leave you in the dust!

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.

Keeping me (and my dog) as a customer

We have had our english bulldog since she was 8 weeks old. The breeder gave us a free 1 month policy for her so we looked into keeping it. Knowing english bulldogs can have a lot of healt problems, we continued with this policy. They have always paid out claims and paid them fast. And at 90%! Way better then a schedule of benefits. However, a few months ago, we received notice that the rate was going up. In order to keep the same rate, we needed to raise our deductible to $500. We shopped around and found what we thought was a great plan at a better price. Turned out to be a bad plan at a good price. So we kept our policy with Trupanion!

Trupanion is a life saver!

Trupanion Pet Insurance is the best choice I have ever made. My 12 year old greyhound was diagnosed with splenic hemangiosarcoma and had to have surgery to remove a mass and her spleen. She is currently undergoing a round of chemotherapy treatments. We have finished the second treatment and she is doing amazing! And the best part is that because of Trupanion, I can spend my time focusing on my precious Sweetie Pie, and not worrying about "the money"! Trupanion has quickly and effeciently paid each and every claim I have submitted to them! It has been a true lifesaver having this insurance. I can't recommend it more. I am telling all my friends and family to get on board! You will never be sorry you got insurance, only sorry you didn't! Trupanion has made this horrible time a whole lot easier to bear for my family. I will have Trupanion Pet Insurance on all my animals from now on. No question. Trupanion Rocks!

Is Pet Insurance Worth It?

I signed up for Trupanion when I purchased my Cavalier at 3 mos. I did my research and Trupanion seemed like you got the best coverage for the best rate. Woops! Fortunately, I had no claims during the first year. Trupanion states in all their literature that their rates only go up based on Vet care in your area and breed. Nothing about increases approved by the state insurance commissioner or their profit and loss. After one year my rate went from $34 a month to $66. You can read all the reviews with their spokesperson's responses and it's the same mantra. It appears that they have now changed their policy and increases will be a regular occurrence based on additional criteria they are now implementing. I then began my search for a new company. VPI had a list of exclusions pages and pages long. Forget them. Others have increases as your pet ages, and some were even more than my newly adjusted premium. Reviews of various companies address claims concerns. Some claim denials seemed reasonable, but a good portion seemed unreasonable, i.e. your vet didn't provide as detailed documentation and now the insured is out of luck. Bottom line, unless you're the unlucky pet owner that spends a great deal of time at the vet, put your high monthly premium in the bank. For me over the course of 14 years, barring any further outrageous increases from Trupanion, I will have banked $11,088, not including that tiny bit of interest you earn at the bank today. In addition, you

Best Pet Insurance !!!!!

I have a newly adopted Catahoula Leopard Dog who is absolutely gorgeous and absolutely a handful! Thankfully I had enough sense to get pet insurance a few months after adopting her and was recommended Trupanion through my vet. Little did I know that injuries and mishaps would soon follow at a HUGE cost! I would literally be flat broke if it wasn't for this insurance company. My dog is now healing wonderfully after having expensive shoulder surgery which involved xrays, mri, and the surgery itself. The reimbursement is stellar and they have a very quick turnaround time. Definitely the best pet insurance I've heard and one that I'll NEVER be without!

My dog owes his life to this company.

Without Trupanion I would not have been able to afford the first class care my beloved dog needed when he had a stroke. I would never have a companion animal without vet insurance.

I recommend Trupanion to every pet owner I know

A few months ago we adopted brother and sister twin kittens. Being a new pet owner I was new to the idea of pet insurance. I was offered a free 30 day trial of Trupanion and decided to give it a try. Not even two weeks later, I came home to find one of my cats, Roku, extremely sick. He had vomited and barely had enough energy to lift his head from where he was lying. Our vet recommended bringing him into the clinic immediately. After being examined, Roku’s blood pressure was dangerously low and the vet was concerned. To complicate matters it was Friday and the vet clinic was closed for the weekend. At my vet’s recommendation I took Roku to an emergency clinic where they had to perform emergency surgery for a possible blocked intestine. They had strong suspicions that he might have swallowed a foreign object or that he had contracted FIP (feline intestinal paracytosis) which is a deadly disease in cats. So one surgery and multiple tests later, the clinic bill had skyrocketed to over $4000. Not exactly the kind of money you keep lying around. I was freaked out by the bill but knew that I had the Trupanion trial. After submitting my claim, I was reimbursed for 90% of the entire bill, no questions asked. I had the check in my hands before the charge was even printed on my credit card statement. All of this and I hadn’t even made my first monthly payment to Trupanion. Roku completely recovered from his surgery and is totally healthy today. Who knows how things would have gone

very good

We had to have a lump removed from our dog Henry's left leg and biopsied. The lab report was negative, no cancer and Trupanion approved the claim promptly and fully. The only delay came when Trupanion had to wait for my vet's office to send Henry's medical history (this was our first claim).
