Hugo is glad to have pet insurance

10356759_10203065315407779_4853202733494706701_nThe other day, Tric, one of our sales specialists, stopped by my desk to share an awesome story.

Her brother has a chocolate lab named Hugo who he had been meaning to insure, but still hadn’t gotten around to it. Tric frequently reminded her brother that it’s a good idea to insure his dog. One day, she got to the point where she didn’t want to wait anymore, so Tric simply enrolled the dog and started paying for it on her own, without telling her brother.

A few months go by and Christmas comes up, at which point, Tric presents the insurance policy as a Christmas gift to her brother and his wife.

Fast forward to November of 2013: Hugo was diagnosed with lymphoma. With several veterinary visits and treatments since then, Trupanion has paid out over $9,000 to help with Hugo’s care.

Thanks to Tric, Trupanion Pet Insurance and Dr. Maleo and her great crew at ACCES Seattle, Hugo is getting his toes wet and howling about it. Every minute counts in this life.

We are so pleased to be able to help Hugo and we’re very proud of Tric who, not only is a fantasticly awesome person, but a great advocate for pet insurance. If it weren’t for her, who knows what kind of financial situation Hugo’s owners would be in right now.
