A Tremendous Sense of Relief

Dasha - Labrador Retriever“Imagine taking your decade-long friend outside to take her for a walk and after a few moments she flops to the ground, unable to sit or stand.  That is what happened when I took Dasha outside on that fateful morning.

With my heart dropping to my stomach I gently picked her up and carried her into the house.  I knew something was terribly wrong.  After an agonizing day at the vet it was determined that she had cancer.  As the vet explained everything, the cost of treating her continued to rise.  I wanted to do everything I could to treat her, but I knew I could not afford it.  However, when I called Trupanion to see if her treatment would be covered I felt a tremendous sense of relief when they confirmed it would.  After her major surgery I went to visit her and as I laid on the floor with her in my arms I knew she was going to pull through this trial.  Every time I take her with me hiking or to the beach, I whisper a special thanks to Trupanion, for without them Dasha would be a memory.”
