Our toy poodle Molly, is 12 years old. At age 6 she had irritable bowel syndrom and liver problems, with surgery, hospital and prescrition expenses around $5,000. Over the past three months, she had pancreatitis which caused her to have diabetes (which may or may not be permanent). Hospital and vet costs plus lots of medications and insulin were in excess of $4,000. In all, they have covered about 40% of the costs. If I didn't know that I had VPI behind us, who knows where Molly would be today?
