Customer Story: Sequined Blouse No Match for Mercury

“Mercury is 8 years old, but he still gets hungry for the unusual. I had a sequined blouse hanging on a hanger on a doorknob, and he devoured the front half of the shirt. We rushed him to our veterinarian. They took an X-ray and found that he would need surgery to remove the blouse. During the surgery, our veterinarian found a tumor on Mercury’s kidney and removed it right away. It was good that we an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Mercury! He is now happy and healthy again.” -Melanie R., Willows, CA

Customer Story: Otis Injured Attempting to Chase Turkeys

“Otis jumped out of an open window to chase a group of wild turkeys that often go through our yard. Otis landed on his behind and froze. I picked him up and took him straight to the veterinary emergency clinic. I noticed that he was bleeding while we were in the waiting room. The deep puncture probably came from landing on a rock. There was also quite a bit of swelling that had to come down before X-rays could be done.

After a long recovery, Otis is wagging and chasing his tail again. I am happy to have an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Otis, especially for the unexpected.” -Avery N., Morris, CT

Customer Story: Sally is Better After Corneal Ulcer

“I was over at a friend’s house, and we were playing a little game of kick ball gently in the living room using a yoga ball. The ball went directly into the face of Sally, my French Bulldog, and her eye turned red and puffy. Our veterinarian discovered that the accident had caused a corneal ulcer. It took a week for Sally to recover, and we are much more careful around balls.

Our ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan has helped out a lot, and I wish that I had gotten it sooner. I could have used it for usual puppy things and the time Sally stepped on a bee.” -Cara P., Bridgeville, CA

Customer Story: Keaton OK After Eating Bowlful of Onions

“There was a bowl of leftover Chinese takeout food on the counter that contained mostly onions. We do not know how Keaton got it off the counter, but we found the bowl empty and on the floor. We know onions are highly toxic, so we rushed him to the veterinary clinic. They induced vomiting, and out came a bowl-sized amount of onions.” -Tyler S., Elkridge, MD

Customer Story: Vinnie Got Clipped by a Car

03302014.jpg

“My daughter was visiting, and we were about to go out. Typically, Vinnie will sit at the door waiting for a leash to be a clipped before he would go, but this time the door was slightly opened. He darted straight out after a cat across the street. In a blink, he had crossed the street, chasing the cat into the path of an oncoming vehicle with him just behind. The cat made it, but the vehicle clipped Vinnie. We scooped him up and took him to the emergency veterinary clinic. Luckily, there were no broken bones, just road rash in several places and a bleeding nail bed. I was so glad I had taken the time to invest in an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Vinnie.” -Audrey P., San Jose, CA
