Grateful for Compassionate Calls

“I just wanted to express my appreciation for everything the folks at the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance program have done. I just added a new pet to my policy, which I previously purchased for my dog, Bucky, who passed away a few months ago. My claims were handled very fairly, and I was very appreciative when I received calls to see how Bucky was doing after surgery. I even received a sympathy call when he passed away. I didn’t expect that from an insurance company!” –Florence M., Pittsburgh, PA

Jack Survives House Fire

“I was out of town when my house caught fire, and my neighbor had to break down the door to rescue my dog, Jack. My poor dog ran out of the house with smoke billowing behind him and buried his nose in the snow. 

Jack spent a week in the hospital followed by two months of oxygen therapy, but he is doing better. Something like this really helps you appreciate ASPCA Pet Health Insurance! My plan has been vital to helping us manage the medical bills.” –Patrick L., Brunswick, ME

Arturo Ingested Gopher Bait

“My husband buried gopher bait out in the backyard. Later on, he noticed that one of our dogs had been digging around where he buried the bait. We figured by the size of the hole that it had to have been Arturo, our Miniature Australian Shepherd, rather than our Lab. I took Arturo straight to our veterinarian's office, knowing he had an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan. If I had waited, I would not have seen any symptoms for 72 hours and by then it would have been too late. The veterinarian induced vomiting and found a glow to it, meaning that Arturo had definitely ingested the gopher bait. The veterinarian administered charcoal to Arturo several times over a 24-hour period, and my dog is now back to his rambunctious self.” Clarissa D., Red Bluff, CA

Prevent Cat Falls

As summer heat wanes, you may be more likely to open a window rather than crank the A/C. But remember to take care that your cat doesn’t tumble out.

Even a fall from a 1- or 2-story home can cause injuries like a shattered jaw or punctured lung. Help keep your cat safe by making sure window screens are secure.
