Treating the “Down Days”


“When I adopted Raidyn as a wee baby, I knew I was in for an exciting life with him. His personality is so vibrantly infectious. He is mischievous, playful, loving and such a hug bunny. But I noticed as he got older, something was not quite right. He began to have what I call ‘down days’ where he didn’t want to do anything and he would look at me with a look of ‘Why, Mom? Why do I feel bad?’ His veterinarian, Dr. Barnes, was concerned and wanted to find out what was causing these “down days.” So Raidyn underwent a scope and several tests. He was diagnosed with three chronic diseases. IBD, Lymphoplasmacytic enteritis and Eosinophilic gastritis.

It’s been a long road, but we manage it with daily meds and a special diet. He is pretty much his old self most days. He loves to go for car rides, walk on his leash and meet people, and play his heart out. I thank you, Trupanion, for being there for us, not just for the bad days but for every day. Without Trupanion, Raidyn’s quality of life would have been very restricted. Because of Trupanion and Dr. Barnes and his team from Westview Veterinary Hospital, Raidyn will have a good life.”
