Pet Insurance

 

What is pet insurance?
Similar to human health insurance, pet insurance helps provide peace of mind in case the unfortunate should happen. Its purpose is to help cover the costs of unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur in the future. Unfortunately, it will not cover any current conditions your pet may have which are known as pre-existing conditions. This means that the ideal time to insure your pet is as early as possible so that anything that happens in the future will be covered.

How does pet insurance work?
When your insured pet becomes sick or injured, you take him to the veterinary clinic for treatment. You then submit your invoice along with the pet insurance claim form to be reimbursed at a percentage, less your chosen deductible.

History
Our parent company ECIA partnered with Trupanion because they are Canada’s fastest growing provider of pet insurance for dogs and cats. Founded in 1999 as Vetinsurance in Vancouver, B.C., founder and CEO Darryl Rawlings renamed the company Trupanion as he expanded internationally. Today, Trupanion has the honour of being North America’s #1 rated pet insurance company[1].

With recent advancements in animal healthcare, veterinarians across Canada are now able to offer treatments for health conditions that were previously unavailable to most pets. These medical advancements allow pet owners the ability to provide the very best care for their beloved pets. But the cost of care often exceeds the family budget. Luckily, Trupanion provides affordable life-long coverage for cats and dogs who enroll between the ages of eight weeks and 14 years of age.
