What Is Dog Insurance?

happy dog photo When your pet gets sick or injured, the last thing you want to think about is how much it will cost. Dog health insurance from Trupanion helps protect you from that financial burden and makes sure you can focus on getting the best care possible for your pooch. Whether your dog has several minor incidents or develops a serious medical condition like cancer, pet insurance shields your budget from unexpected veterinary costs.

Knowing that your dog’s healthcare is covered allows you to determine the course of treatment based on what will be most effective for the health and happiness of your dog (not the size of your wallet).

With dog medical insurance, your canine friend will be taken care of.

How Does Dog Insurance Work?

After enrolling with Trupanion, you will be reimbursed 90% of covered healthcare expenses for your dog. You pay the remaining 10%, as well as your monthly premium, examination fees and routine preventative care. See our sample policy for more details.

You know what’s best for your pet. That’s why we reimburse you based on your actual veterinary bill and never use benefit fee schedules or “usual and customary” payouts. You can work with your veterinarian of choice or visit a specialist or emergency room and we will reimburse you the same way. No need to search for a specific veterinarian who would treat your pet within a certain price point.

With Trupanion there are also no limits per claim, per incident or per year, and there is no lifetime payout limit. If you have an unlucky pet that has a lifetime of serious health conditions or ongoing care, you will never see a cap on how much you will be reimbursed.
