Palm Nuts Cause Problems

Both Willow and Ziggy have Trupanion, and thank heavens!

Willow was sick as a dog, vomiting up bile, so I rushed her to the vet. They did an x-ray and found a round object in her stomach. She had eaten palm nuts! Willow was taken in for emergency surgery and they performed an endoscopy to remove the nuts.

However, the story does not end there. While under anesthesia, Willow developed an ulcer in her left eye! We quickly made an appointment with the eye doctor.

Willow is well on her way to recovery. Thanks to Trupanion we were able to afford the best care and not have the financial burden that comes with it!  Thank you, Trupanion!
