Our four and a half year-old male German shepherd Axl is 106 lbs. of love & loyalty.
protective, loving, and incredibly intelligent. He enjoys all sorts of outdoor
activities, especially hiking in the woods, particularly during fall,
winter& spring (in the summer you’ll find him swimming or enjoying the
paddleboards at the cottage). Also, his favorite activity is chasing his ball
He’s been protected & covered with Trupanion since he was a puppy and it was by far the VERY BEST DECISION we made in regards to his health care. He has had years where we never needed to use coverage and others where we were so thankful for the protection it provides.
At two, he was diagnosed with pneumonia. He spent three days at the veterinary hospital with IV fluids, antibiotics, and x-rays. Trupanion took care of all our financial concerns and also inquired into how he’s doing on his recovery.
At age four, he started with hip issues that needed to be corrected, pain medications, rehabilitation and rest all resulted in improved pain-free movement. He also developed some ear and skin infections and again Trupanion was there for him.
We tell everyone about
Trupanion and what it can do for your pet. I’m so grateful that we chose a plan
that not only covers the cost of his treatment but, also any physical therapy
or rehabilitation that he may need.
The rep I dealt with when initially signing up for it was knowledgeable, professional and helpful. We’ll never have another furkid without Trupanion protecting them. Best money spent!!
