Screen Check
Before you open up your windows to let in that lovely spring breeze, make sure your screens are secure. Your pet could push them open and get hurt or lost.

Spring Cleaning
Be careful to keep potentially poisonous products out of your pet's reach as you do your spring cleaning chores and store them safely when you're done.

Garden Safety
If you're sprucing up your garden, remember that fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides can harm your pet. Read the directions and follow warnings closely.

If your pet ingests something poisonous, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center can help at 1-888-426-4435.

You can find more spring safety tips on our blog.

Pet Photo Friday: Insurance to Help with Older Cats

“ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has been great since my trips to the veterinarian are more frequent now that my cats are older. The reimbursement procedure is very fast and easy. I don’t know what I would do without the insurance since I am retired and on a fixed income.”

The holidays can be the most expesive time of the year for many people. Sarah shares her story on how ASPCA Pet Health Insurance helped her during the holiday season.

"My cat Micah became listless, wouldn't eat, and was vomiting. The veterinarian did an X-ray and ultrasound, but they were inconclusive. He put Micah on antibiotics and steroids. My poor boy also had to have IV fluids because he was dehydrated.

It took a while, but now Micah’s back to his old self. He takes a steroid pill daily (we fight every morning about this!) and is doing well. The bill was about $1,600.00, so thank goodness I have ASPCA Pet Health Insurance!  With the holidays here, money is especially tight and the reimbursement check was a huge help."
