Trupanion Policyholder Benefits from Pet Insurance Without Payout Limits
French Bulldog becomes first to benefit from Trupanion's recent policy change to no lifetime limit
Seattle, WA, June 28, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Trupanion implemented and announced a 'No Payout Limits'
change to its policy less than a month ago and has already had a policyholder take advantage of this new
benefit. Trupanion's receipt of a pet insurance claim for skin medication from policyholder Cathy Tunis
took the payout on the policy for Madelaine, a French Bulldog, over the former lifetime payout limit of
$20,000. Because Trupanion removed this limit, Ms. Tunis is able to continue with the necessary
veterinary treatments for her dog without having to worry about costs.
Madelaine (Maddie, for short) has been enrolled with Trupanion (then Vetinsurance) for almost five
years, since she was only 6 months old. During this time, she has experienced a profusion of health
problems, including bronchitis, skin issues, urinary tract issues, and chronic allergies.
"We are very grateful that Trupanion changed to an unlimited lifetime coverage for pet insurance," said
Tunis. "I knew that Maddie was getting close to the old limit of $20,000 but I didn't realize how close."
