German Wirehaired Pointer smiling

“Mercury is 8 years old, but he still gets hungry for the unusual. I had a sequined blouse hanging on a hanger on a doorknob, and he devoured the front half of the shirt. We rushed him to our veterinarian. They took an X-ray and found that he would need surgery to remove the blouse. During the surgery, our veterinarian found a tumor on Mercury’s kidney and removed it right away. It was good that we an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Mercury! He is now happy and healthy again.” -Melanie R., Willows, CA

Golden Retriever laying with a tennis ball

“Otis jumped out of an open window to chase a group of wild turkeys that often go through our yard. Otis landed on his behind and froze. I picked him up and took him straight to the veterinary emergency clinic. I noticed that he was bleeding while we were in the waiting room. The deep puncture probably came from landing on a rock. There was also quite a bit of swelling that had to come down before X-rays could be done. 

After a long recovery, Otis is wagging and chasing his tail again. I am happy to have an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Otis, especially for the unexpected.” -Avery N., Morris, CT

French Bulldog laying on a blanket

“I was over at a friend’s house, and we were playing a little game of kick ball gently in the living room using a yoga ball. The ball went directly into the face of Sally, my French Bulldog, and her eye turned red and puffy. Our veterinarian discovered that the accident had caused a corneal ulcer. It took a week for Sally to recover, and we are much more careful around balls.

Our ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan has helped out a lot, and I wish that I had gotten it sooner. I could have used it for usual puppy things and the time Sally stepped on a bee.” -Cara P., Bridgeville, CA

Dog sitting on grass

“There was a bowl of leftover Chinese takeout food on the counter that contained mostly onions. We do not know how Keaton got it off the counter, but we found the bowl empty and on the floor. We know onions are highly toxic, so we rushed him to the veterinary clinic. They induced vomiting, and out came a bowl-sized amount of onions.” -Tyler S., Elkridge, MD

Terrier mix looking over a wall

“I want to thank you so much for your honest business practices and caring attitude. It is rare to find both in the same place. You were compassionate and understanding about my dog’s passing as well as honest and forthright with your reimbursements.

I will keep you in mind always and, when we finally decide to welcome another pet into our home, we will certainly insure him or her with ASPCA Pet Health Insurance. Thank you again, you have outdone yourselves.” -Ginny R., Sacramento, CA

fluffy kitty with pretty eyes

“I just wanted to thank everyone behind ASPCA Pet Health Insurance for their sincerity and kindness after my kitty passed away last month. I received a phone call and a card in the mail, both of which are incredibly personal touches that I did not expect from an insurance company. Down the line, when I get another pet, I will definitely be purchasing an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan again. Thank you!” -Claudia D., Provo, UT

“My daughter was visiting, and we were about to go out. Typically, Vinnie will sit at the door waiting for a leash to be a clipped before he would go, but this time the door was slightly opened. He darted straight out after a cat across the street. In a blink, he had crossed the street, chasing the cat into the path of an oncoming vehicle with him just behind. The cat made it, but the vehicle clipped Vinnie. We scooped him up and took him to the emergency veterinary clinic. Luckily, there were no broken bones, just road rash in several places and a bleeding nail bed. I was so glad I had taken the time to invest in an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for Vinnie.” -Audrey P., San Jose, CA

“Chirpa is my Lhasa Apso who just turned 16. He was recently diagnosed with an eye condition that caused granule deposits in his corneas. It is very painful and can only be corrected surgically. He had to have bilateral cornea grafts, and he almost didn't make it through the procedure. Chirpa spent the weekend in the emergency clinic but pulled through and is now fully recovered! Thanks to Chirpa’s ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan, I was reimbursed for a large portion of the cost. I am so thankful because I get to come home every day to Chirpa’s smiling face!” -Tiffany H., Palo Alto, CA

Doberman in the snow

“We adopted our beautiful Hedwig in Spain and brought him home with us to New York over a year ago. Hedwig is now living with us and Chuck, a Manchester Terrier, in a house with a big garden where they are having the time of their lives running around together. I think it's great how they get along so well, as they were both fully grown when they met. I love them dearly!” –Maria N., White Plains, NY

Dog on a cushion

"Our Chihuahua, Sophie Marie, was frantically looking for the stool she uses to get on and off on the bed, and I leaned over to show her were it was. We bumped heads, and Sophie Marie fell backward. She first hit the stool and then the floor. The next morning she showed signs of lameness, and I took her to her veterinarian. Our collision caused a sprain that kept Sophie Marie from her regular activity for 4 to 5 weeks. It was hard to keep her still for that long, but Sophie Marie is now back to normal." -Linda D., Medford, NJ
