“We have four dogs covered by Trupanion and last year I almost canceled our policies. Fortunately I listened to a Trupanion associate and kept the insurance. Not long after, we found our newest fur baby, Boone Dog, paralyzed in our backyard without any forewarning. We were told that night that he had myleopathy and a collapsed congenital disc. He was on a ventilator that week and was in horrible shape.
No one expects this. You don’t get a puppy thinking that you will be facing two weeks of life-saving vet care and a $21,000 vet bill…but that’s where we were. We would have not been able to afford or support Boone the way we needed to without the help of Trupanion and our veterinarian. I called Trupanion crying my eyes out, needing support, and there was not one time I didn’t get the support that I needed. Trupanion stepped in to work with our veterinarian so we did not have to worry about the overwhelming financial stress.
Boone Dog was our veterinary hospital’s first successful ventilator case. The surgeon said that some of the success came with his young age but the biggest factor was our ability to keep going financially. Ventilator treatment costs $1,500 per day.
Our Boone Dog is home, getting better every day, and thriving because of Trupanion. Grateful doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about this company. In our eyes, Trupanion is filled with heroes. They reunited us with our baby and gave him a new start in life. We feel that Boone was given to us for a reason, and without Trupanion the world would not have Boone Dog to enjoy for years to come. He is our miracle boy!”
