How much is it going to cost you?
A variety of factors can influence your monthly premium cost:

- Pet’s breed, age, gender
- Geographical location
- Deductible (higher deductible – lower premium and vice versa)
- Optional coverage (if any)

A no benefit limit makes Trupanion an excellent choice for financially protecting pet owners against any sudden illness or accident. But just like many of the top pet insurance services, it does not cover pre-existing conditions. The company's 90% no-limit coverage is just about the best deal you are going to find. There seems little going against Trupanion in terms of the overall quality of the services they provide. If you are looking for pet insurance in Canada, Trupanion is a must-look-at option.
