Customer Story: Pam's Alley Cat Antics

“Pam, my indoor cat, and I live in an apartment with an alley in the back. Once Pam got out and ventured into the alley. Soon I heard a cat fight. I was so worried! Pam had been inside her whole life, and I didn’t know if she would be able to defend herself.

I rushed out into the alley, and I saw Pam hissing and pushing away a huge male cat. Luckily, I got Pam inside, but she kept licking her paw, and I could see it was bleeding. We went to the vet right away, and I was told Pam needed minor surgery.

I was very nervous about how much it would cost. I’d had an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Pam, but I hadn’t used it so far. Thank goodness for that policy!

After I paid the deductible, my pet insurance plan paid about 80% of the remainder. I would have been out several hundred dollars without it, and I don’t have that kind of money.

Pam has been lucky since then, but there is nothing like the reassurance I feel because she is covered. I will never have to choose between her health and money.” –Calista M., Calabasas, CA

Customer Story: Protecting Mom

“I stepped outside with my dog Kyle one night and was surprised to get knocked down by a stranger waiting in the dark. Kyle leapt into action to keep me safe, chasing the man away after a short struggle.

Luckily, Kyle only suffered a minor back injury that was treated by my veterinarian the next day. I’m so thankful for my pup who protected his pet mom and happy to protect him with ASPCA Pet Health Insurance!” –Virginia P., St. Louis, MO

Customer Story: Vomiting Induced After Alex Ate a Fire Starter Log

“I first bought Alex an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan after he ingested a bottle cap. This time we had left a fire starter log, the size of a candy bar, wrapped in a plastic bag and tucked under firewood on the hearth. We came to find ripped plastic on the floor, along with a little debris. We called animal poison control, and we were instructed on how to make Alex throw up. He vomited quite a bit initially and then carried on retching on and off through the night and into the morning. We took him to the veterinarian, where they took X-rays then gave him fluids and shots. We were also told to feed him a bland diet to help settle his stomach.” – Hannah W., Wheeling, WV

“Most recently I had to submit two claims on my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans for my furry babies, as they were both injured on two separate occasions. I was very pleased with the quick turnaround and fantastic customer service! They guided me through the whole process, and I couldn't have felt more appreciated as a customer. I have no doubt that purchasing my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans was the best decision I have ever made!” –Annabelle W., Redding, CA
