In early June/2011, my little Shih Tzu had emergency surgery for bladder stones & a urethral obstruction. Since then, we have been dealing with recurring bladder infections. Without Trupanion's Vet Insurance, I couldn't have paid for all the check ups and medication. I would have had to give her up to someone who has more money, and my Schnauzer mix ( who has separation anxiety ) would be lost without her. Each time we go to the vet, he cries when she is out of his sight. Thank you for being there for us and for answering my questions when I didn't know what else to do. I will continue to recommend Trupanion to anyone interested in health insurance for their beloved companions.
