photo of a puppy named Tasha

“I noticed my puppy, Tasha, eat something off the lawn. When I approached, I saw see she was eating lawn mushrooms, which can be very poisonous to dogs. I took Tasha to the emergency clinic, and she received treatment for the poison. This incident just goes to show that in a second, your plans can change and turn into a costly emergency. Luckily, I bought Tasha an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan as soon as I adopted her so this costly emergency visit was covered. I suggest ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to everyone!”
