A Touching Story

We asked about your experiences with pet insurance in a recent sweepstakes, and we were touched by the story our winner shared:

“We had a 4-year-old Miniature Pinscher come in after being savagely attacked by another dog. She was de-gloved from ribs to tail. I cried when she walked in the door.

The owner had zero dollars to her name. She had exhausted all of the financial sources she had. She kept asking if she could get insurance, but, of course, not after the fact.

The bill was in the high thousands, but our team worked pro bono. That little girl is now in great health, and her mom enrolled her in pet insurance. Though it didn’t help for this situation, her future is protected.”

During my years in private practice, I saw lots of pets suffer injuries over the holiday season. Dogs gobble up candies left on the counter or cats get tangled in decorations. It’s a great time of year to share pet-proofing tips with your clients.

Here are some popular tips
you can pass along:

  • Look at holiday decorations from a pet’s level and remove tempting items.
  • Stabilize large decorations, such as trees.
  • Secure wires and light strands out of the way.
  • Keep ornaments and tinsel out of paws’ reach.
  • Don’t let pets drink tree water.
  • Watch alcoholic beverages and holiday food.
