“I had two cats. My male cat passed away on May 31, 2014, at the age of 7 due to diabetes. I could not afford to go on with the ever-growing bill and his further emergency treatments and had to make the devastating choice to humanely end his suffering.
I found out about Trupanion the next day and decided since I still had my baby girl, Congo, who is about 6 years old, that it would be a good idea to enroll just in case. I never really thought I would need it because she’s so healthy but the thought of having it gave me comfort.
This April 2015, I noticed Congo’s stomach was slightly distended. Immediately, my brain thought “pyometra.” She had no other symptoms beside the distended tummy, but because she was not spayed, I just had the thought. I decided better safe than sorry. So off to the emergency clinic where the diagnosis was just as I suspected. Congo needed emergency surgery, even though I caught it before it had gotten bad she still needed to have her uterus removed.
I realized I had pet insurance so I gave Trupanion a call to see what could be done. The staff were kind, caring and efficient! I felt like they truly cared about my baby girl. I thought when I got the insurance “90% covered,” was too good to be true, but it is true. Trupanion saved my Congo’s life, money was not a worry. I wish I would have been more educated about pet insurance when I got my kittens, it may have saved my boy’s life too. I recommend Trupanion to every pet owner I meet and tell them my story in hopes Trupanion will help save someone else’s fur baby’s life. Thank you, Trupanion!”
