Trupanion Reviews – Week of 11/28

We love you ‪#‎Trupanion‬ more than you know.
Thank you for being a blessing to me and Cyndi. You have exceeded my expectations 10 fold. Ensuring my dog with you is one of the best decisions I’ve made my entire life. ‪#‎Truth‬ -Jonathan P.

Hi, my name is Samson but they call me Sammy…I know, people say I look like Boo but I think I’m cuter. I only weigh 4 lbs! I haven’t been feeling well lately cause I have Neutropenia but my Mom and Dad got help for me as soon as possible and now I’m doing much better. My Mom & Dad bought my health insurance just before I got sick so they could not claim my expenses because they were still in their 30 day waiting period. Be sure you get Trumanion as soon as you get a pet.

I can rest easy with your excellent insurance! -Karen S.

You guys are the best, thanks for taking such great care of my pooch!! -Michelle D.

Guinness the Dane’s Pet Insurance Story

BeachOur Great Dane, Guinness, turned 1 on a Friday completely healthy (or so we thought!), and by Monday was in the ER needing blood transfusions, surgery, and barely clinging to life. That weekend he had been acting a little strange, very lethargic and didn’t have much of an appetite. On Monday he barked at a noise, as he always did, but this time collapsed out of exhaustion. We rushed him to some specialists nearby where they checked him over and quickly brought him to see the doctor. We were unaware of just how serious his condition was.

Repairing His Good Knee

Jax - Michelle Rosen - Image 2“We got Jax from a wonderful breeder as a brother for our other bulldog, Ozzy. Jax is a wonderful addition to our family and is a happy, playful bulldog.

In October 2013 we noticed he was limping on his good knee (he had the other luxating patella corrected in 2011).  We re-connected with his surgeon at Foster Hospital for Small Animals at Tufts University and Jax had his surgery in December.

It is a great comfort knowing when major issues like this come up, Trupanion is there.  Any questions we had were answered promptly and the claim was paid very quickly.

Jax is 3 months post-surgery and is back to running and playing with his brother.

Any time anyone asks about pet insurance, I always tell them to check out Trupanion.”
