Trupanion Emphasizes the Importance of Pet Insurance for Small Pets
Date:5/17/2010

Pet insurance company Trupanion reminds pet owners that small pets are fragile and susceptible to injury.

(Vocus) May 17, 2010 -- Trupanion, a pet health insurance company, reminds owners of small pets that pet insurance is especially beneficial for their pets. A small Yorkshire Terrier, Felix, is insured with Trupanion and recently broke his leg. Trupanion repaid the claim in the amount of $2,139.92. Six weeks later, Felix returned to the vet for an examination and jumped from his owner's arms, causing the break of his other front leg.

The company also recently paid a claim to cover the costs of a broken leg for a Chihuahua that was dropped by a child. Trupanion emphasizes the importance of pet insurance for small pets because small pets have smaller and therefore more fragile bones which can easily break, leading to high costs for veterinary treatment.

Trupanion hopes that owners of smaller pets will consider a pet insurance plan and take precautions to prevent such injuries. The pet owner can then rest assured that future injuries related to falling or being dropped will be covered by the pet insurance.
