I took Opie, my 7 year old Cairn terrier, to the clinic at the beginning of May 2012 because all of a sudden he was drinking excessively and urinating uncontrollably, which is highly unusual for him. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with diabetes, his blood sugars were in the 600's! Soon after, he had a terrible pancreatitis attack and needed to be rushed to the ER animal clinic and then transferred to his vet's hospital for a week. As you can imagine, the bills were very high, but Petplan came through for me. What haunts me is that I almost cancelled his policy when it came time for renewal because he seemed so healthy. It just goes to show you that emergencies happen when you least expect it and since this health issue has been a big surprise, I am grateful everyday that Pet plan will help me with the expense of keeping my precious companion healthy as possible.
