When our 9-year-old GSD’s gastrointestinal upset wasn’t alleviated by a few days of bland diet—in fact seemed to be getting worse (watery diarrhea, refusal to eat)—we took her to the vet. Blood test, anti-nausea and fluid injections, and stool sample later, we had a provisional diagnosis of infection or dietary indiscretion. She began to improve on a course of Metronidazole and Proviable KP, and we kept up the rice/chicken regimen for several more days. A follow-up visit to the vet coincided with the stool sample report: dietary indiscretion was confirmed (the diagnosis still makes me laugh).Once she was back to normal, I submitted my claim to PetPlan, and was reimbursed quickly in accordance with my plan. I chose this insurance for Sophie 7 years ago because of their policies regarding breed-specific issues, and it gives me great peace of mind.
