Trupanion cares about your pet and cares about you

Out of 10

One of my two sibling cats wasn't behaving his usual "cuddle bug" self. Felix had vomited a couple times before I went to bed, I thought it was just a fur ball thing. When I awoke the next morning, I found that he had been vomiting throughout the night. Felix didn't eat, drink, go to the washroom or play with his brother at all that day. He would sleep and when I would pick him up, he would jump down and go hide. I felt like I was watching my cat die right before my eyes. It was Saturday afternoon and my regular vet was closed for the day, so I brought him to a 24 hour veterinary clinic where they kept him to run some tests. It was determined that Felix had a blockage (foreign body) in his intestines. In the process of preparing him to operate, he vomited up the tube that they had inserted and in doing so, he went into respiratory failure. As such, they could not continue with the operation. It was suggested that I take Felix to a facility that had a critical care unit and specialists that would watch over him. I transported Felix to another facility where they kept him for 6 days. During that time, Felix had a series of blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound and a successful operation to remove a fur ball from his intestines. The two facilities that I dealt with were great and submitted the claims to Trupanion upon my leaving. Trupanion had received my claim and sent me an e-mail within a couple of days to let me know and thanked me for taking such good care of Felix.
