dog with quills in nose

"During a hike, Autumn took off barking towards the base of a tree. She quickly returned with a full face of quills from a porcupine. We were an hour away from the car, and by the time we arrived at the emergency vet clinic, the waiting room was full. So I decided to go home and call our mobile veterinarian. Autumn was anesthetized, and they used pliers to take out each quill. The veterinarian prescribed antibiotics, and Autumn looked like herself again by the next day. These accidents can happen, and I was glad I had ASPCA Pet Health Insurance!" -Mindy H., Brattleboro, VT

We tell all of our friends how great the service has been, and how it was there for us when we truly needed it. Annie is the love of our lives, and she will always be the best friend we could ever wish for in life.” –Sandy C., Hollywood, FL
