Poor little Diesel, an adorable Weimaraner puppy, had only been in his new home for a little more than a month when he became very sick and required diagnostics and hospitalization on intravenous fluids and medications to help get him better. Thankfully, his mom had enrolled him in the Trupanion Insurance Program right after his initial visit here at Harbor Animal Hospital, so most of his bill was covered! After paying her $250.00 deductible, mom was reimbursed 85% of the total costs which turned out to be a total of $1475 out of $1744. This illness took place during the initial 1 month free trial period, a gift that we are able to provide to interested clients with certificates from Trupanion!
Pet Insurance is nowhere near as commonplace in the U.S. as it is in Europe, but as you can see, it definitely can be of great help in a situation such as Diesel’s. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about pet insurance, or you can contact Trupanion directly at 1-866-715-6099 or via their website at trupanion.com.
