Storm’s Hip Dysplasia and Hydrotherapy

Storm as a puppy


Storm is a Chocolate Labrador Retriever who was enrolled with Trupanion as a puppy. She is now about 11 months old and has been undergoing treatment for hip dysplasia, which was diagnosed when she was just four months old.

Storm needed surgery on one hip and is currently undergoing hydrotherapy treatment. Her owner was kind enough to send in photos and a video of Storm during one of her sessions!

Hip dysplasia coverage is available to all dogs and cats that enroll before their first birthday, and is also available under our Complementary Care/Optional Benefits Package for pets of all ages (availability is subject to regulatory approval in your area). The Complementary Care package also includes coverage for hydrotherapy. Visit our website or call 800-569-7913 for more information.
