In an ideal world, our furry little buddies would be in the best of health all the time. We would never have to worry about them getting sick or face an enormous vet bill. 

Sadly though, our beloved pets can get sick and injured. This is where Trupanion comes in. Trupanion is a pet insurance provider with two decades of experience providing cover for pet owners. It offers both cat insurance and dog insurance. 

The Mozo judges were so impressed with Trupanion’s pet insurance policy that we awarded them a 2022 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Pet Insurance^. As they did last year, Trupanion has once again taken home a title in the Exceptional Quality Pet Insurance award category.
