Customer Story: Mayslie's Battle with Breast Cancer

“Our Mayslie, a Katrina dog, developed a mammary lump. When it was removed, pathology showed it was cancerous. A year later, another lump appeared. We had that one removed also, only to find it was a different type of tumor. We are so grateful for her ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan, which has reimbursed us for both surgeries, as well as tests and X-rays. We are retired and on a limited budget. Thanks to her ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan, we could have Mayslie taken care of promptly and properly! Our other two ‘kids’ are fine, but we are prepared just in case!” –Louise R., Oroville, CA

Customer Story: Spitfire Covered for Out-of-State Emergency

“Spitfire’s ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan helped when we feared he had a bladder stone. We received a reimbursement for an emergency veterinary clinic visit we needed while on vacation out of state. The visit included multiple tests and antibiotics. Our veterinarian then ran a couple more tests to confirm Spitfire did not need surgery when we returned home. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has also been helpful with Spitfire’s recurring urinary tract issues. It is great to have if history repeats itself!” –Kasi J., Middletown, OH

Customer Story: Two Cats Triumph Over Cancer

“My sister’s beloved dog was hit by a car. My sister recounted how she carried her dog, wounded and bleeding to the veterinarian’s office. It was a horrible experience, but she was grateful to have had pet insurance to help with the bills.

That made me pause and realize that my two cats weren’t insured. I shopped around and compared plans offered by a couple providers. I decided to buy an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan that covered accidents and illnesses. My plan also has coverage for chronic conditions.

Four months later, I took one of my cats to the vet for a checkup. I pointed out a small bump I’d felt on the tip of her tail. I was surprised by the doctor’s concern. It was biopsied, and I was stunned to hear it was cancer.

Our vet amputated a part of my cat’s tail, and now, years later, she’s in good health. My other cat also had a cancerous growth removed, and she’s doing well also.

I’m grateful that I didn’t have to worry about unexpected veterinary bills at these stressful times.” –Jenny C., Fayetteville, NC

Customer Story: Grover is Covered, Just in Case

“I live on a limited income and have coverage for Grover just in case something happens with his health. ASPCA Pet Healthy Insurance has been easy to use, and it came in handy when Grover had to have a gingival mass removed a few years ago.

I adopted Grover shortly after I lost another Sheltie to cancer. Grover needed a new home because his owner had become quite ill and could no longer care for him. Shelties get very attached to their owners, so Grover had a hard time adjusting to the change. When I saw his lonely and hurt face, I got down on my knees and talked to him like a person, explaining what happened and that I would be taking him to his new forever home.” –Cheryl K., Doylestown, PA

Customer Story: To Burp is Divine

“We placed Rebecca’s food in front of her in the morning as usual, but she placed her tail between her legs and began to shake and scream. She cuddled up between my legs, so I picked her up and reassured her by patting her on the back. She then burped and began wagging her tail. I put her down, and she began to eat her food normally. We recently took her to the veterinarian about this behavior, and we think it has something to do with her heart murmur. When she gets excited she gulps air, which seems to create the unwanted gas. We’ve have been trying gas relief medication to help relieve the issue.” –Michael R., Reno, NV
