As pets can experience more health complications as they age, parents of senior pets can face the potential of hefty veterinary expenses.

When Nicole D. from Chicago* was told that her senior dog needed surgery, her pet health insurance helped ease some of this strain.

Here is her story:

“We took our 9-year-old dog, Lou, to the veterinary hospital for intensive surgery as he needed stones removed from his stomach, as well as a mass on his spine. Because of his age, there was only a 50-50 chance he would make it through the operation. To our relief, he survived and is here with us today to celebrate his 11th birthday! We want to thank ASPCA Pet Health Insurance not only for reimbursing us a good part of our bill, but for also making a traumatic time a little less stressful.”

Keep in mind, once your pet is enrolled with ASPCA Pet Health Insurance, we will never cancel your pet’s coverage because of age or health.
