Prior to the surgery, there were several tests conducted - various lab work (CDC, urinalysis), ultrasound, biopsy - and of-course, prescription medication. The surgery was a major one; Jack is now on recovery phase. We are so grateful to Pets Best for helping ease *some* of the worries involved in this experience. Purchasing Jack's Pets Best insurance policy is one of the best investment decisions, if not the best one, I've made in the past three years. Thank you for standing by your product and for serving your customers well. Jack and his family are grateful to you.
