In June, we noticed a mass growing on Sophie's gums. The vet removed it and had it sent to the lab. Pathology confirmed that it was benign tissue and probably caused by some type of aggravation. Unfortunately, within 2 months, it grew back completely. We contacted our vet again and they recommended us to a dental veterinarian. He got us in within 24 hours and performed a procedure to remove half of her lower jaw. This time, the pathology results indicated that it was cancer (multilobular osteochondrosarcoma).
I was so relieved to have Petplan insurance. There was never a question about whether to proceed with the procedure or not.
Sophie is doing very well. She acts like nothing happened, as dogs tend to do. We will have follow up visits to make sure that it hasn’t metastasized and I am so relieved to know that I don’t have to worry about the bill.
Petplan has been very responsive when I have called them and they processed my claim within 2 weeks. I’m very happy with Petplan.
