In March 2011 our 10 month old Lab/German Shepard puppy started having loose stool and slight lack of appetite. After about 3 days of this, I took her to the vet and took an exray to make sure she hadn't eaten anything that she shouldn't, no she did not. He also took some blood. Her tests came back fine so he treated her for colitis (bad spelling, sorry). She was on antibiotics for a while and white rice and grilled chicken diet for about a week. Once her stool was solid we slowly added back dog food. She has been fine since. We submitted all the forms to the ASPCA insurance and they paid the claim according to our contract. Well worth having the insurance for the peace of mind, especially with a curious puppy.
Thank you ASPCA.
