After a fairly routine TPLO (tibial plateau osteotomy) my Newfoundland became seriously ill-his platelets started to decline in number and he was diagnosed with Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia. Essentially his immune system perceived his platelets as the enemy and started to destroy them. The battle began and it entailed suppressing his immune system and waiting for his platelets to recover. They did. This entailed nearly a week in Critical Care and I know that without having the coverage that I opted for with Embrace, my sweet dog and I would not have been able to win this particular battle. Embrace covered the TPLO and the Critical Care costs in a timely and compassionate manner.
