“I took Alfalfa outside, and he jetted away to the same spot I thought I had seen a raccoon the day before. I rushed over to pull Alfalfa away, and he briefly got caught in a thorn bush and suffered a big scrape and cut. I took him to the emergency room, where he received treatment and antibiotics. Alfalfa is fine and doesn’t have a scar like I thought he would. He is my child, and I am so glad to have ASPCA Pet Health Insurance for him!” – Rochelle D., Worcester, MA

Archie Dog ate cleaning wipes

"My dog, Archie, managed to open a package of 15 individually-wrapped cleaning wipes and ate all of them. After speaking with our veterinarian and animal poison control, we determined that the wipes were not poisonous. We took him to the veterinarian for an X-ray, though, to make sure there wasn’t a blockage. Previously, Archie had destroyed the packaging of three bottles of super glue. We now have our veterinarian and poison control on speed dial! I have always been so pleased with my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan and have had it for Archie since 2008." - Mary R., Hagerstown, MD
