    Hi Stacy! I’m Aki, Cheddar’s owner. Cheddar is definitely lucky that we got him Trupanion. We have been with Trupanion for over 7 years now and have had nothing but the best experiences in terms of how much medical coverage we have received. In addition, claims are always processed quickly! Despite some recent increases in premium prices due to inflation and increases in local veterinary medicine costs, Trupanion is none the less the best pet insurance company. Thanks for you awesome coverage! Cheddar and I really appreciate it!
