If you’re new to pet ownership, you may have questions when it comes to your pet’s medical care.

No pet owner wants the financial or emotional stress of an unexpectedly injured or ill pet. Read on to learn more about your options for pet health insurance in Washington and how Trupanion can help throughout your pet’s lifetime.
Pet health insurance for cats and dogs in Washington
Here for the unexpected
If your dog or cat becomes sick or injured, it may feel overwhelming. For example, the stress of a sick pet, costly veterinary bills, and wondering how your pet will get the medical care they need, is a lot for any family.
With the help of a Trupanion policy, you can rest easy that your dog or cat can get the care they need without breaking the bank.
A Trupanion policy is here for those moments that you don’t expect. Whether your kitten needs a prescription medication or your dog needs surgery, that’s exactly what we’re here for. If you’re looking to get medical insurance for your pet, you may expect something like this with our coverage.
Consider the following:
Prosthetic devices and carts
You may not know what’s going on with your pet. Because of this, your pet’s veterinarian may have to do multiple tests to get to the root of the problem. As long as your pet was not presenting signs of the illness before your coverage, we’re here every step of the way to help you figure it out.
*Terms and conditions do apply.
What is a pre-existing condition?
If you’re new to pet ownership, you may still be trying to figure everything out when it comes to your new best friend. While tips and training can go a long way for pet owners, one important factor to mention about pet health insurance is that most don’t cover pre-existing conditions. To further break that down, a “pre-existing condition” is a condition that showed signs before coverage or during any waiting periods are not eligible.
How pet health insurance works
If your pet is sick or has an accident, you want to get medical care. Pet health insurance with a Trupanion policy can help your pet when you need it most.
With policy perks like unlimited payouts*, coverage at birth, flexible deductible options, and an online claims submission, your dog or cat can have coverage for all types of pet health conditions.
Is pet health insurance worth it?
We’ve paid out over $1 billion to our members and have helped countless furry friends. Pets are family and you don’t want to place a limit on their health care. Naturally, you never know when something may come up for your best friend.
“The total bill from his two-night stay at the hospital totaled up to just under $10,500. I ended up paying less than $1,500 out of pocket. I know that without having Trupanion to help with Jeffery’s bills, this might have had a very different outcome. It would have been difficult, if not impossible, to pay those veterinary bills just from the first visit alone, not to mention all of the follow-up care that he is going to need down the road.”

“Wesson is my special boy with some very chronic issues. He was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia at just six months old. With the help of Trupanion, we’re able to give him the best joint supplements, anti-inflammatories, and even hydrotherapy to help strengthen his hips and make him as comfortable as possible so he can live a long happy life! Wesson is only two years old and so far Trupanion has paid out more than $3,700 for just these two issues. We know we will only be responsible for a portion of the bill—no credit card use or struggling to find where the money is going to come from.”
