10/10 Totally Worth It!
My dog is big (100lbs) and getting older. I figured SOMEthing’s going to happen sooner or later so I looked into insurance. I picked Trupanion because it seemed pretty straightforward. 8 months after I enrolled, my dog had a life-threatening emergency and ended up in ICU at the animal hospital. I was out of the state when it happened, and when I got the call from the hospital asking what I wanted to do should he need the $3600 emergency surgery… I felt so relieved that I could without a doubt say ‘yes, please do it’. It was stressful enough worrying about my best buddy’s health from 2300 miles away! He didn’t end up having the surgery, but the tab still managed to be $1700 for all they had to do & his night in the ICU. I paid the deductible, exam fees, & 10% of the remaining amount so my part was $570. Trupanion sent me a check for $1130, which was $1130 I didn’t have to cover! My dog is recovering and I am not worried about paying off thousands of dollars. The claim was simple and Trupanion had great communication with me throughout the process. Now dog insurance doesn’t seem so ‘crazy’ to my friends. 🙂
