TRUPANION PET INSURANCE ANNOUNCEMENT BY WIGNALL ANIMAL HOSPITAL AND LOWELL VETERINARY CLINIC 

Although there are over 30 pet insurance companies at the present time, Wignall Animal Hospital and Lowell Veterinary Clinic endorse one company to their clients:  Trupanion pet insurance.  It can be very difficult for “pet parents” to research pet insurance carriers and their coverages; and even more difficult for them to sort through all the complex information about pricing, exclusions and coverage plans.  Considering the hectic pace of most families these days, who can possibly have the time and patience? 

Over the past 2-3 years, hospital owner, David McGrath DVM, has been watching the trends as new companies have emerged, in some cases overshadowing the “old timers” of the pet insurance industry.  There are so many different features to each insurance company’s plans, that it is almost impossible to compare “apples” to “apples” in order for clients to make an informed decision.  Some won’t cover certain breeds; some will only cover dogs or only cats; some will only cover puppies and kittens; and others will only cover a pet under age 7.  It is a huge challenge for anyone trying to find a good plan for his/her pet(s) AND also be able to understand what is included!

In an attempt to rescue our clients from this maze of information, after extensive research and consideration Wignall Animal Hospital and Lowell Veterinary Clinic are pleased to announce  Trupanion as the insurance of choice.  The decision is based on many things, including the expeditious manner in which Trupanion reimburses policyholders based on actual veterinary cost.  The Trupanion Policy Overview states “Trupanion covers  90% of the actual costs of veterinary care should a pet become sick or injured. This includes diagnostic testing, surgeries, medications, supplements, therapeutic food, orthotic devices, prosthetic devices, and carts. Pet owners can choose any veterinarian, including emergency veterinary clinics and veterinary specialists.”  Trupanion provides free online and phone customer service support 24/7 and we feel this is very important for our clients.  If you have an insurance question, you need help now—not tomorrow after  9am!
