A Holiday Emergency Elicits Aid

Noodle the brussels griffon“Just before Christmas, Noodle, my Brussels Griffon started bleeding from his nose. The next morning, after a sleepless night of trying to keep him calm and wiping a never-ending drip of blood from his nose and beard we brought him to the emergency veterinarian hospital. A few days later he nearly died in our arms as we rushed back to the ER in New York City. His blood levels dropped so low he could no longer get oxygen to his brain and his body was shutting down.

I received a crash course in veterinary medicine and our options. I did not have time nor head space to wonder what Trupanion covered so I made my decisions based on one thing: What’s best for Noodle? I paid for everything upfront hoping that Trupanion would help and am grateful that I could afford to do so. When the dust settled and I looked at the bill, I called Trupanion and was shocked to hear most of the expenses were covered.

Several people helped save Noodle’s life—the man who drove a stranger and a bleeding dog to the hospital, the neighbor that watched our other pup, and the amazing veterinary staff. Trupanion’s vision and support help ensure that I will never have to make the decision to let my dogs die simply because it’s too expensive. What an awful thing to have to deal with.

Trupanion helped save Noodle and all the people who love him. I’ve recommended Trupanion to everyone with a pet, and plan to offer it to my employees and gift a year’s worth of coverage to my
friends who can’t afford plans.

Very few people hold true to such a loyal commitment to people through business as Trupanion does. I can’t thank them enough for their help.”
