Dogs resemble children in many ways. They need love, affection, reassurance that their needs will always be met and effective positive behavior training. Providing these things ensures your dog will be on his best behavior. He’ll be a joy to be around, especially when he’s near kids.
Bailey the 12 pound mixed-breed dog spent 9 days at the vet hospital after swallowing 27 cents. It may not seem like a lot, but a little bit of change can give a small dog a lot of zinc! When dogs consume too much zinc (from swallowing things like US pennies minted after 1982, bolts, nails, zippers, some lozenges, and other objects that contain zinc) they can experience zinc toxicity.
We have had a blast seeing all of your adorable dog and cat Halloween-costumed and fall photos these past few weeks! Thankfully, we didn’t have to choose favorites because our winner will be randomly drawn. But we definitely had to share them all! View the slideshow below:

How do you say “Thank you for saving my life” to the pet that saved your life? Dante, a three-year-old black Labrador Retriever, was supposed to be in Spain with his family. Due to timing issues with his international health certificate he had to remain behind for two weeks with his family’s in-laws.
What a cutie! Say hello to this week’s Pet of the Week, Chips!
My name is Chips, but my owners sometimes call me “Chippers” or “Chippies”.
I am a Frenchie (French Bulldog) and am 1 years old. My owners say I am very smart and very silly. I know lots of tricks like shake, high five, roll over, sit pretty and bow. Although, I know the meaning of, “come”, I am stubborn and usually ignore my owner. Some people have said I look like Yoda…but, I bed to differ….I am way cuter.
Musetta is a 4-month-old Burmese kitten who loves to play with her Burmese sister Violetta in the curtains. The kitties’ owner Sandra noticed something wrong when Musetta became lethargic and refused to eat. At first, she was treated for a possible respiratory issue, but after returning home, Sandra knew that something was still not right. Musetta would move her neck and it appeared as though something could be stuck, so she returned to the vet, insisting on Xrays.
Trupanion is WONDERFUL! My baby had some medical issues earlier in the Summer. Trupanion was very helpful every step of the way. No matter who I talked to on the phone, they were nice and caring. The staff makes you feel like they care about what you care about!! Not many companies out there could make you feel like what is important to you is important to them. I am grateful for having pet insurance for my cat because it was a reassuring feeling to know Trupanion was there to back me up and give my cat the best care that he deserves! Thank you, Trupanion =^..^= -Jennifer S.
I would just just like to extend a world of gratitude for the wonderful service provided to Meisha. There are not enough words to express my wonderful thoughts of your company. I lost a piece of my heart when my daschund Meisha left me. Through all her back issues and surgery, Meisha received such amazing help and was never left in a predicament to provide her the best care possible. Your wonderful staff and service will never be forgotten. Trupanion is truly an outstanding company that puts pets first and gives immediate attention and help.
I love Trupanion! My dog can walk again after a dog attack injured his spine. Thank you Turpanion! -Andra Y.
