Saving Aspen

From the moment we set eyes on the sweet, extra-wrinkly puppy we called Aspen she had our hearts in her paws. She’s an avid runner and hiker, closet couch potato, and the best rainy-day cuddle buddy. The perfect fit for our family!

There is a lot of misinformation about pet insurance out there, so when we were considering medical insurance for Aspen, we hesitated. A friend recommended Trupanion. After reading testimonials from Trupanion policyholders, we were sold. Accidents happen and puppies love mischief, so we wanted to be prepared for anything that came our way.

On the night of February 22, every pet parent’s worst nightmare happened. Our sweet 9-month-old puppy who “would never run off” ran out between our legs and went straight for the road. With a pneumothorax, a fractured femur, and a bunch of unknowns, we had a LOT to worry about. But Trupanion took one major worry off our shoulders: cost. As soon as we got home from the vet we received a phone call from a wonderful Trupanion representative letting us know that we didn’t have to do anything but worry about Aspen. We left Aspen in the very loving, capable hands of the Veterinary Specialty Center of Newfoundland & Labrador and could sleep knowing Trupanion had our back.

A week at the specialty clinic ICU, surgery to repair the fracture, endless bandage changes and x-rays, and many long weeks of bed-rest later and our not-so-wrinkly-anymore puppy is back to her happy, tail-wagging self. Because of Trupanion’s assistance and the wonderful staff at the VSCNL, Aspen got the care
she needed and we could put our focus on her recovery.

Thank you, Trupanion! We’ll forever spread the word about all you do!
