Our vet suggested a few years ago that we look into pet insurance for our now 11-year-old golden retriever who had been plagued his whole life with chronic skin allergies. He recently became suddenly ill, lethargic & not eating, and it turned out to be Stage V-b Lymphoma in his spleen and liver. One of the vet tech's that night even suggested there would be no shame if we decided to put him down. This is a dog that is usually so full of life & happy & often gets confused for a puppy because of his playful demeanor & young face, so there was no way in the world putting him down without a fight was an option for us. We immediately were referred to an internal medicine specialist at Chicago Emergency & Specialty Hospital who said there was definitely a chance we could do some alternative chemo methods to try & save River. He stayed at the hospital for a week, barely eating, but taking his chemo treatments well. Within 2 wks, he was almost back to normal & after 4 wks, the Dr. thinks he's in complete remission & with another round of the treatment plan should be able to lead a full healthy & active life. We have spent over $8000 at this point & PetPlan has covered 90% of that cost. We would never have been able to afford such good care & have the hope for the life River deserves without the help of PetPlan. We are so thankful & are spreading the word about this amazing company to everyone we meet! Thanks PetPlan!!!
