We've been a long time supporter of pet insurance, and have been sending our puppies home with 30 days of free insurance through Trupanion. I think it's important for people to know that we do not benefit from this in any way, shape, or form. We don't get paid to advertise for them, and we don't get any monetary compensation when people sign up. It's sole purpose is help new owners mitigate the cost of veterinary care. We provide our puppy parents with the free insurance so that if an accident or illness should occur after they take the puppy home, they don't get stuck with expensive medical bills.
Accidents happen, and they're very likely to happen when your poodle is young. Puppies love to put things in their mouths and chew on things they're not supposed to. The cost to surgically remove an item that can not be passed on it's own can cost hundreds of dollars, thousands if it is done in an emergency room setting. If an owner can not afford to pay for the procedure, they have two choices. They can either opt to euthanize the dog, or they can choose to sign over ownership to the veterinary practice. No puppy parent should be forced to make either of those choices, but it happens. Signing up for Trupanion keeps our puppies and puppy parents together by making regular and emergency veterinary care affordable.
Be sure to activate your puppy's Trupanion insurance within 24 hours of bringing them home, and use activation code BR1RJ52418. No credit card is required. Simply sign up with your contact information and puppy's name.
