Trupanion's history


Matilda's Story

"When the vet bill came in for Matilda’s first knee surgery I was extremely relieved that Trupanion came through for me and paid for 90% of Matilda’s surgery. Now that Matilda’s other knee is severely symptomatic, I am comforted to know Trupanion is there for us to smooth the way and make it possible for Matilda to live and walk normally again."

-Dave M.
