cat fits and sits in box lid

"I love Sammy so much! I adopted him from a shelter where he had been surrendered because he didn't suit his family's lifestyle. Apparently he spent too much time hiding under the bed. He's a shy cat, but he likes to cuddle and only hides under my bed if I have visitors or if it's too hot for him. Half the time I catch him in the living room lying on his back. Their loss is my gain! I was meant to be this boy's pet mom." Marian L., Pacifica, CA

ninja dog on dog couch

"Ninja is our 7-year-old, good natured, gentle, very friendly and intelligent Shar Pei. He is a treasured member of our family who has had several medical issues. In addition to health problems, including mast cell cancer, he has been bitten severely by unleashed dogs we have encountered on our walks over the years. The most recent health scare was a severe bacterial infection that nearly cost him his life. He had to be hospitalized and was critically ill for several weeks. At this time he is on the road to recovery, and I'm thankful for my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for the rapid and helpful payment on our claim. I am always telling friends and family that it is an excellent pet insurance plan. Thank you, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance!" - Cheryl S., Miami, FL

photo of dog that ate wood

“I left Zeke alone, and he apparently heard something on the other side of the bedroom door. So he tried chewing through that door! He's 10 years old, and he has never done something like this before. It was not a solid wood door. When I got home, I found the first side had a large hole, and Zeke was working his way through to the other. He had wood chips and splinters on his head, in the skin of his muzzle, and on his mouth, tongue and feet. I was afraid that he had swallowed a large wood piece so I rushed him to the veterinarian. The vet removed all of the splinters and gave him some medication for the pain. I’m definitely a firm advocate of pet insurance, and I recommend ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to others.” – Tessa K., Charleston, WV

“I took Alfalfa outside, and he jetted away to the same spot I thought I had seen a raccoon the day before. I rushed over to pull Alfalfa away, and he briefly got caught in a thorn bush and suffered a big scrape and cut. I took him to the emergency room, where he received treatment and antibiotics. Alfalfa is fine and doesn’t have a scar like I thought he would. He is my child, and I am so glad to have ASPCA Pet Health Insurance for him!” – Rochelle D., Worcester, MA

Archie Dog ate cleaning wipes

"My dog, Archie, managed to open a package of 15 individually-wrapped cleaning wipes and ate all of them. After speaking with our veterinarian and animal poison control, we determined that the wipes were not poisonous. We took him to the veterinarian for an X-ray, though, to make sure there wasn’t a blockage. Previously, Archie had destroyed the packaging of three bottles of super glue. We now have our veterinarian and poison control on speed dial! I have always been so pleased with my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan and have had it for Archie since 2008." - Mary R., Hagerstown, MD

Lily the dog with a purple blanket

“When we took our dog, Lily, to get her shots updated, the veterinarian gave us an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance brochure. Not long after we purchased Lily an insurance plan, she became ill with an inflammation of her pancreas. We almost lost her. The bill was costly but thanks to our ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan, a large chunk of the cost was covered. It was great to get that check.”

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!”
