I am the "father" of a 12 year old cat who used to be very healthy. Last November, he stopped eating for no reason. After I while, I asked the vet to take a look at him. She came home, hydrated him and took his blood. She then asked us to rush him to the pet hospital to do an ultrasound. $800.00 for the consultation and ultrasound alone... the results came in, we started medicating him, but still no sign he was getting any better. The vet went home again after a while and asked for blood work and another ultrasound. He then had to stay for 2 days in the ICU. $5,700 right there... Petplan covered everything... they sent me the checks after a couple of days... excellent service!
