Read on to learn how unexpected medical care for puppy Mustard resulted in specialty care and extensive surgery.
Our dog Mustard has been to the veterinarian a lot in the first years of his life! At 10 months of age, Mustard began limping on his front leg. On his first birthday, he was diagnosed with elbow dysplasia and had surgery at a specialist to remove fragments in his elbow.
Unfortunately for Mustard, he may need to have surgery on his other elbow—but we know Trupanion will be there for him (and us!) if it happens again.
Then at two years old, Mustard started vomiting every night for no apparent reason. After a lot of tests, we discovered he also has allergies! Mustard is now on special food that helps his upset stomach and has no further issues.
Without help from Trupanion, we never would have discovered what the underlying problem was.
The pre-approval and claims went off without a hitch! Thank you Trupanion, for helping our furry children! – Amanda, Devin, and their dogs, Noah & Mustard
