Stress-Free Resolution

Out of 10

Our six-year-old cat, Mingus, was experiencing diarrhea, so we took him to the vet. It seemed to come on shortly after we went on holiday, so we presumed he was experiencing stress-induced enteritis. The vet concurred and subscribed an antibiotic based on a stool sample. We submitted that claim to Trupanion and they resolved it fairly quickly. Unfortunately, after about six weeks of a very slow recovery, things took a turn for the worse and Mingus stopped eating. We took him in to the vet again and, after keeping him overnight for further assessment, our regular vet felt there were liver issues that needed to be assessed by a specialist. And, again unfortunately, the specialist did not have a very optimistic outlook, especially after an MRI and a needle aspiration. That afternoon, I said goodbye to my friend. But, after all that sadness and stress, I submitted the paperwork to Trupanion and, within a week, they processed and paid my claims (covering over $1100 of about $1400). So, although my story is a sad one, Trupanion made the financial side much easier. Thank you, Trupanion.
