Pet Health Matters - Monthly Pet News from ASPCA Pet Health Insurance
Say Cheese!

We just can't get enough adorable pet pictures—but who can? Taking photos of our furry friends can be just as fun as looking at them, and these tips can help you capture your pet's best side.

Don't be shy about a bribe.
Get your pet in the picture-taking mood with a few treats. Then snap away, holding more treats in your hand near the camera, so your model will look your way.

Try a sneak attack.
Come up on your pet quietly with your camera ready to go. Call out softly at the last moment if you want a nose-on shot. A good zoom lens can also help you get a great candid moment.

Rely on natural light.
Whenever possible, avoid using a flash to take photos of your pet. Not only can it cause that annoying red eye glare, it can startle your poor pet and ruin your shot.

Don't worry if every shot isn't picture perfect. Be patient, experiment and have fun. And be sure to share those priceless pet photos with us on Facebook.

Pet Speak: A Customer's Story*

“My little starlet Sparkle has had ASPCA Pet Health Insurance since she was 1, and we've used it twice in less than a year. The first vet bill was for over $500, and I was so thankful I had your coverage. I only wish I had it during the first year of her life. It would've saved me a lot of money — well over $1,000!”

— Tina R., Sunnyvale, CA

News about the ASPCA®

Our friends at the ASPCA announced the opening of a full-time animal behavioral rehabilitation center to help fearful and undersocialized dogs.

We're also committed to helping pets with behavioral issues, which is why new ASPCA Pet Health Insurance Level 3 and Level 4 plans now come with behavioral coverage. View your plan in the Member Center.

Safe Fruits & Veggies

The summer months bring an abundance of healthy fruits and veggies, some of which your pet can enjoy, too. You should consult your veterinarian before introducing new foods, but these are typically safe for pets:

  • Blueberries

  • Strawberries

  • Cantaloupe

  • Watermelon

  • Asparagus

  • Cauliflower

Keep in mind that some snacks, like grapes and raisins, are toxic for pets. Check our safety website for a list of foods you should never offer your pet.

Flea & Tick Reminder

Unfortunately, summer can also bring an abundance of fleas and ticks! Talk to your veterinarian about how to keep your pet pest-free, and remember our Advanced Wellness option includes coverage for flea and tick medications.
