In August or dog Jet was diagnosed with histiocytic sarcoma. The average life expectancy for untreated dogs with this cancer is 17 days. The treatment is expensive and, without insurance, we would not have been able to afford to treat Jet after a $6000 vet bill on an uninsured dog earlier this year. Christmas is approaching and Jet is fantastic! No one would know he has cancer. We highly recommend insurance for your pet.
