Our two year old portuguese water dog vomitted blood early one morning. Took her to the emergency vet for blood work, x-ray, ultrasound. Turned out to be really low platelet count. Treatment requires blood checks every 2-3 weeks and immune suppressent drugs at over $300/mo over an 8 month period. Trupanion claims are easy to submit - haven't lost 1 fax yet - and are quickly processed. If you include our deductable and exam fees (which are not covered), we've been reimbursed about %85 of our total costs for this illness - $4,600 out of $5,400 total cost.
