Featured Pet Insurance Review – An excellent investment

10/10 An excellent investment
Our shelter-adopted, female, toy poodle mix may have ingested something toxic while a stray before being rescued by a kind, pet-loving person and taken to the Hendricks County Animal Control Shelter. We made several medical insurance claims after a pre-surgical blood test before she could be spayed showed elevated ALT liver enzymes, followed by a month of treatment with Denosyl, two subsequent blood tests, an ultrasound of her abdomen, then a liver biopsy taken during her spay surgery. The biopsied tissue was sent to the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at Purdue University for histopathologic examination. It was determined that there is “hydropic hepatocellular degeneration” in her liver “that may be the result of hypoxia as well as metabolic or toxic insults.” To our relief, this is a mild condition that should not require any further treatment at this time. Trupanion handled all of our claims made for the above situation in a very timely manner and reimbursed us according to the promises made when we enrolled in their pet health insurance program. We have been more than pleased and feel that enrolling our “Princess” with this company has been one of the best investments we’ve made.
