Prior to adopting Tony, I had my girl Sasha. In the last two years of her life my husband and I spent a large amount of money for various tests and an operation to remove a slipped disc in her back which was a successful operation. About two year after that operation, she developed several more problems including a tumor, and possibly another disc problem. Due to her age and the recommendation of our vet we finally had to let Sasha go. Knowing I had done everything possible to save her life helped me accept what had to be done for her. I was fortunate that I could provide the care that she needed to the end of her life. When we adopted Tony, I was fully aware of the costs that a pet owner could incur so I elected to obtain pet insurance for Tony and I have been very much satisfied with the results from Trupanion and how they process the claims I have submitted for Tony so far. The insurance provides peace of mind should Tony develop any severe problems in the future.
