Rescue Dog Dougie: Grateful for Trupanion

Read on to learn more about why this pet owner is grateful for Trupanion for the specialty care rescue dog Dougie was able to receive due to the medical coverage.

I wanted to share my dog’s story and how grateful I am to Trupanion… Dougie is a rescue dog that our family adopted a little over a year ago. He is a lovely natured dog despite his hard start in life.

On our vet’s recommendation, we enrolled him with Trupanion as soon as we got him.

Over Christmas my younger daughter and I went to visit family in Scotland, leaving Dougie at home with my older adult daughter. Somehow, he managed to swallow a large rock which got stuck in his intestines. He became very ill, and my daughter took him to the vet.

As you can imagine, this was extremely stressful for me, being in another country when it happened. Our vet contacted Trupanion for us and arranged for pre-approval of the cost of the necessary tests and subsequent emergency surgery, which was carried out as we flew home. The surgery was a success and Doug is now at home recuperating. 

Without the pre-approval for the treatment, Dougie would not be with us today. 

Thank you, Trupanion!!
