Seasonal Infomation

September is National Pet Insurance Month!

We work directly with Trupanion™ and provide exam-day offers for immediate medical coverage. The offer expires 24 hours after your pets exam. This offer is eligible for dogs and cats under 14 years of age. If you are interested in enrolling, ask us about this special offer!

90% coverage of eligible veterinary expenses for unexpected new illnesses and injuries with no payout limits for the LIFE of your pet.

Trupanion™ can pay hospitals directly and can close claims in as little as FIVE minutes.

Accepted at any general veterinary practice, ER care hospital, and referral centers in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

Trupanion™ is available 24 hours a day, SEVEN days a week, and 365 days a year.

Although enrollment is recommended at a young age to prevent pre-existing conditions, you may enroll your pet at any point!

Trupanion™ provides medical insurance to cover those unexpected costs when injuries or illnesses arise.

Offering 90% coverage after meeting your deductible, which you choose. This covers eligible expenses related to injury or illness for the life of your pet, with no limits on the reimbursement amount. This includes hospital care, diagnostic testing, medications, surgeries, and other treatments that may arise during the care of your pet.

Insurance policies do not cover pre-existing conditions. Even if your pet has current health concerns, the policy will cover future problems that arise. There are waiting periods for coverage- 5 days for injuries and 30 days for illnesses. The sooner you enroll, the more likely any future injuries and illnesses are going to be covered.

What Our Clients Are Saying

After 15 years we decided to change vets and we’re glad we did. Staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. MacDonald was thorough and took the time to answer all of our questions. The staff even followed up the next day to see how our new puppy was doing. Glad we made the change.



Dr. MacDonald always takes the time to answer all your questions. Down-to-earth veterinarian. The staff is very pleasant and helpful.
