Kujo is a little puppy we adopted several weeks ago from a rescue organization. He had a rough start at life being severely neglected with lack of even simple life's basic needs of water and food.
We have Alaskan Malamutes for the past 25 years and always adopted from a reputable breeder so we knew entire generations of the animal's history.
We had Kujo signed up for insurance as he was just such an unknown to us and right from the beginning we felt like he was going to be a handful causing lots of excitement ( prediction right-3 months old and almost died from abusive home and now with this incident!)
Our vet suggested TRUPANION and after an initial clean bill of health 2.5 weeks ago, we were enrolled in a 30 day free trial and also signed him up. Kujo had this horrific injury ( penetrating injury to bowel with resultant peritonitis) and we told the vet that we will do anything to make this guy better as we had to give him a chance after fighting so hard to survive at initial abusive home. I had looked into the insurance and saw there was a waiting period on the policy and thought crap; just our luck! However, Kujo was our priority so we never thought no more on the cost and proceeded to try and get him better.
So yesterday I happily picked up my little trooper and a FOUR page invoice. After 1 week in hospital with multiple X-rays, bloodwork, special tests, IV fluids and multiple medications entire time, major surgery, intensive 24 hr care, etc, etc.
