Rhys Snacked on Joint Supplements

“We left the house, and our dog Rhys got hold of a brand new, 200-count tub of joint supplements. He ripped off the outer plastic cover, opened the lid, dragged it through the doggie door and devoured it in the yard. Luckily, we returned in time to stop him from consuming all of it. We went straight to our veterinarian’s office, where they called poison control. They also performed two liver profiles and induced vomiting.. We now make sure to doggie-proof the house when we leave.” – Madeline D., Fort Collins, CO

Top 3 Halloween Safety Tips

These tips can help your pet have a happy Halloween without a scary accident:

1. Spooky Lighting– Make jack-o’-lanterns glow with battery lights, not candles, to prevent accidents.
2. No Quick Tricks– Watch that your pet doesn’t scoot out the door when you open it for trick-or-treaters.
3. Ghoulish Treats– Keep chocolate, candy with Xylitol and other toxic foods out of paw’s reach.

Learn more about why chocolate is so dangerous for your pet.

Big Reimbursements for Sick Kitties

“I am very grateful to have ASPCA Pet Health Insurance for three of my cats. It is a relief to know that if and when my cats get sick, the costs will be more manageable. Knowing they have insurance makes treatment decisions much easier. My kitties have gotten sick in the past—luckily nothing too serious—and a big portion of the claims were covered. Thank you!” –Josie C., Frederick, MD

Pets Are Fearless: Kai’s Story

We cover fearless because we know how daring pets can be. Kai is one such brave buddy.

“Kai was the most terrified little dog when we adopted her. She wouldn't do anything but sit in the corner and shake. She wouldn't take food from you, look at you and she definitely wouldn't let you touch her. When we first met her at the adoption event, she not only peed on my husband when the lady took her out of her crate and handed her to him, but on herself as well. 3 years later, she is doing amazing. She is so sweet, smart, fun and excitable. She'll do just about anything. This photo is us paddleboarding for the first time!" –Christie C.

Quick Reimbursement in an Emergency

“I recently needed to file a claim for our dog Jasper because he had an accident and was hospitalized for four days. Jasper is now recovering very nicely at home. I cannot say enough about the consistent and excellent service that I received from the people at the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance program while our claim was being processed. Being a claims adjuster myself, I am very familiar with the process, and I could not have been in better hands! I am very grateful for the quick reimbursement.  Thank you so very, very much.” –Gretchen R., Fresno, CA
