it turned out my Boomer had a herniated disk which was causing unbearable pain when moving. his vet tried to find out what the issue was and could not, for obvious reasons. he suggested a neurologist (Southeast Vet. Neurology, in Miami, FL) and that was a God sent. after an MRI, the issue was found, the same day he was operated on, and after 2 weeks at the clinic, he has been fine again. still has to recover another month, but he is fine. ASPCA insurance reviewed the expenses and reimbursed me real fast, no issues, no problems. I highly recommend having insurance, especially ASPCA.thank you for your help and support.
