My Golden Retriever, Jake, suddenly became ill a few months ago. I rushed him to my vet, they took xrays, sent him to a truama hospital with a diagnosis of neumothorax. After a week of treatment he was able to come home. Needless to say, the hospital stay and treatment was very expensive. I was so glad to at least have a portion of the bill covered by my ASPCA policy. They covered up to the limit of my plan, and I was happy to have the help and kindness.
