This is Cujo’s story with Trupanion Insurance for Pets-
On December 24, 2014, we all awoke excited for Christmas until Cujo awoke and couldn’t walk. Also, his back left leg was paralyzed and his right-back wouldn’t support him.
Because of this, a quick call to our vet and he sent us to Guelph Veterinary Hospital. A couple of months prior he had back issues and he was acting a bit off. So, my husband had contacted Trupanion and told them what was going on.
We had a preapproval in our hand for $7,000. At the hospital, they took Cujo away and came back and said he had a herniated disc and required surgery. They started to explain payment and my husband handed them the preapproval. The doctor took one look and told us they would operate within the hour.
It was such a relief for us. We didn’t have to worry where we would come up with the money to pay for the surgery or worse make the decision that we would have to put him down.
Trupanion insurance for pets is the best decision we have ever made. After some research, we decided that Trupanion was the company we wanted to go with. They have the best coverage, a little more expensive….yes but well worth it with no maximum amount for coverage.
