My basset hound was diagnosed with canine cystinuria, which is very rare, at the age of one. This is a genetic disease, which many insurance companies would not cover. Fortunately, we insured him through Trupanion. We have 90% coverage, and are fortunate to have had over $5000 in vet bills paid for by Trupanion. Just 3 months ago, at age 2.5, he blocked with cystine stones and needed emergent care and surgery. He was in the hospital for 4 days. I have since switched my older basset girl to Trupanion insurance. We are really relieved to know that Trupanion will take care of our two bassets when they need veterinary care.
