Pet Insurance Story: Coming Through When He Needed It Most

Louie - Leslie Metcalf - Image 1I adopted Louie at 2 years old. He was very healthy and energetic. Having other Dachshunds and knowing their history of back issues, I was anxious to have him insured not knowing what the future might hold. When I heard about Trupanion, I knew it was the insurance I wanted. Once he was insured, my mind was always at ease knowing I wouldn’t have to worry about facing a large veterinary bill.

My planning ahead paid off when Louie began having back pain 3 years after adopting him. When his symptoms did not improve I knew he would be heading for surgery. We could not have afforded the surgery at the time. I am happy to say that he has recovered very well and Trupanion came through for us quickly and when we needed them the most. I was amazed when Trupanion issued our reimbursement within 24 hours of submitting our claim.

Thank you, Trupanion!
