My 7 year old black lab mix started limping on Sunday. I made a vet appt for Tuesday, by that time he could not weight bear on his right front leg. Vet suspected bone cancer - Major had all the symptoms and was of the age. Needless to say I was devastated - thankfully it was traumatic arthritis. Major is back to normal. Knowing I had Pet Plan took away the added burden of worrying about finances so I could just concentrate on Major.
