Ooodles of Poodle Gratitude!
Little Bowie, a black standard poodle pup was born on July 1st (Canada Day) in a hot and smoky British Columbia. He arrived at his new home in Alberta Aug 30th and was checked on September 2nd by his new vet and proclaimed to be in perfect health. They suggested we get pet insurance (we have Trupanion for our other dog) so I signed up immediately (before I forgot). Seemed like a no-brainer.
The next evening, (Friday of a long weekend) Bowie was romping in the back yard when we noticed a limp and he was very subdued and hyperventilating. Rather concerned, we took him to the animal hospital where he was triaged immediately. Poor little guy had broken his leg and needed a splint and ongoing care.
I was certainly not expecting to make an insurance claim the day after signing up, but I am grateful to Trupanion for their help.
Having pet insurance is important when your furry friend is in need of medical attention and it is good to know that Bowie's health is in good hands.
Thank you for help!
