Our 6 year lab mix started losing weight and became lethargic with an occasional gag/cough. I took him to his regular vet and they did blood work, X-rays and ultrasound. They found a mass and we were referred to the University of Tn veterinary hospital. Yep it was the dreaded C word. His spleen was enlarged and pushing his other organs to one side. They took his spleen out and on examination only found a few spots of cancer on his lungs. We are now doing chemotherapy because he is so young. I am happy to say he acts like a pup again and has gained 4lbs. The greatest thing is I suddenly realized that I had gotten insurance from PetPlan. We had spent tons of money on our previous dogs and they both lived to be 15. We are so very please with PetPlan insurance. I have been telling everyone I know. Please get PetPlan insurance. They pay 80% and swiftly.
I love PetPlan. It has taken the money worries off our minds so we can concentrate on loving and healing our four legged fur baby!
