I had an incident with my black Lab, Tucker last fall when I had him out running. He is a champion bred Labrador. He was snooping over in the weeds and all of a sudden there was a great commotion. I couldn't see him, but I heard him. I wasn't quite sure what he tangled with at the time. However, I could see he was shakened up. I leashed him up and we went home. I didn't think much of it that night. The next morning, Tucker seemed listless and was walking strangely. I noticed his paws were swollen and tender looking. I took him to the Vet and he decided to do a series of tests and keep him for observation. He suspected a spider bite or a bee sting. Something was attacking his immune system. They started him on steroids and strong antibiotics. I told him about the incident and said that I suspected a snake bite from a copperhead. Well, to make a long story short, Tucker made a full recovery. I knew my decision to have health insurance on him was just as important as having it on my kids. I never want to be put in a position of putting my best friend down because it was too expensive to treat him. ASPCA Pet Insurance has been a sound choice because of the comprehensive coverage and good value. The claim was handled very efficiently. There is nothing I wouldn't do for my friend. Tucker is my heart and soul.
