Cherishing a Best Friend

trupanion-cat-cancer“This past April, I received terrible news when my Blue Point Siamese, Cole, was diagnosed with nasal respiratory carcinoma. This is an aggressive type of cancer with no cure – the only treatment is radiation. Without treatment, Cole’s future would have been very short.

Thankfully, I had Trupanion Insurance for Cole. Without it I would not have been able to afford his costly treatment. Trupanion has been extraordinary! All my claims have been paid quickly and without issue. The Trupanion representatives are extremely friendly and caring, always making a point to ask how Cole is doing.

Cole has completed his radiation treatments and is doing extremely well. I realize that his days are numbered, but I am optimistic that his days will stretch into months or even possibly a year or more. I am so grateful to Trupanion for this extra time with Cole; I am cherishing each and every day with one of the best friends I’ve ever had.”

No pet owner ever wants to hear that their pet has cancer. As scary as it can be, there are now many options available to pet owners looking to give their pets the best care. Despite increasing cases of cancer in pets, advances in veterinary medicine mean that pets can live longer, healthier lives.

The truth about feral cats and how to keep your cat safe

feral-catFeral cats have been the focus of a controversial debate for at least the last decade. Already this year they’ve found themselves the focus of the federal court, while bird and cat advocates in New York battle over their shared use of Jones Beach State Park. Regardless of which side of the debate you’re on, if you’re a cat owner, it’s important that you know the truth about feral cats and how to keep your cat safe.
