Customer Story: Scout's Spleen Removal

“I have had my Beagle, Scout, covered with an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for the past eight years. I recommend this insurance to anyone who has a pet, as it has been extremely helpful from the beginning. Last year, Scout became sick and needed to have his spleen removed. It was an expensive procedure, and I ended up getting reimbursed just about everything I paid. I don't have any children, but I consider Scout to be my baby. I feel better having him being covered with the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.” –Melanie V., Cranston, RI

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: 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
