A Lifelong Companion Gets the Care She Needs

A Lifelong Companion Gets the Care She Needs“I adopted my dog Lucky when she was a year old.  Her previous owner was in the military and she and her family were being transferred to another state. Around that time, I was going through some difficulties. I wasn’t really looking for a dog, but family members suggested that this would be a good opportunity for me to stay busy and have a little dog to keep me company.

Well, Lucky has been keeping me company for 12 years now.  It’s hard to believe how quickly times goes by. Throughout the years she has always been my constant companion through good times and bad.

As Lucky started getting older I worried about her health and the cost of veterinary visits. I decided to purchase medical insurance for her. I called several pet insurance companies, but Trupanion offered me the best coverage for an older dog.

Last December, Lucky was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Since then, she needs daily subcutaneous fluid treatments and blood tests every 3 months.  She also needs to get ultrasounds to check her kidneys. All of these tests are very costly and I don’t know how I would be able to make the payments without Trupanion. Submitting claims are easy and within days I receive payment.

I am very grateful to Trupanion.  You never know what’s going to happen and getting medical insurance for your special family member is so crucial.  Unfortunately, Lucky will need to receive subcutaneous fluid treatments for the rest of her life.  But, it’s comforting to know that Trupanion will be there to help with costs. They will continue to cover costs for as long as it takes.  Thank you Trupanion for all that you have done and continue to do for Lucky.”
