I have a 2 year old chocolate lab and I had stepped out of the house for just a few minutes and I came back to find that my dog had eaten her body weight in dog food. Silly me, I had forgotten that I had left the open bag on the floor. Thankfully I am a veterinary technician and know the signs of bloat and recognized them right away. I called my vet and took her to the hospital right away. Radiographs confirmed what I had suspected, food bloat! My vet recommened that I take her over to the ER for at least overnight care/monitoring. Once at the ER they gave me 2 options, overnight monitoring with frequent walks or pump her stomach. I chose to just have her monitored since she was stable. The next morning I went to pick her up and she had done great! The techs and DR's at the ER gave her amazing care. None of this would have been at all possible without Trupanion! I now recommend this insurance company above all others! It's so easy to submit your claim and you find out within minutes what they will cover and what you will pay out of pocket. Trupanion saved my dog!
