We rescued Ziggy 3 years ago and being unsure of his history decided to get pet insurance. After asking around and doing some research online we felt ASPCA offered what we needed at a reasonable premium. After Ziggy was all cleaned up and vetted we noticed he had some skin issues(scratching, scabs), weepy eyes and reverse sneezing so we brought him to our vet who said he has allergies. He gave us recommendations and a couple of prescription medications, including a special shampoo. It helped, some, but he was still suffering from itching and ear infections so our vet recommended allergy testing. Well, our poor dog was allergic to so many things that now we try to avoid and we're happy to report that he's doing so much better with controlling his allergies. Unfortunately, we recently almost lost him to sudden onset diabetes. That is now under control with 2x/day injections of insulin, but then he suddenly lost his sight. We are looking into getting his eyes restored and we don't know how we would have paid for all of Ziggy's great care had it not been for having ASPCA pet insurance!! Submitting claims and receiving reimbursements have been so easy. We were touched by the personal phone calls from ASPCA inquiring about Ziggy's health. Shelly was especially thoughtful and kind with her heartfelt sympathies regarding Ziggy and all that we are going through dealing with his diabetes and blindness. She knew what it was to go through this with our lovely, furry kid! We foster rescues as our way to give back for all the love our dogs have given us and recommend that our adopters get ASPCA pet insurance for the love of their new family member! Even in my business, all my patients know I foster and have an ill dog, so I recommend ASPCA to my animal owners, as well.
