My little 5 lb. Maltese is a certified comfort animal for me. He knows when I am anxious and he calms me down. When he has illness (fever, infection from thinking he's a hunting dog, stomach problems), it's wonderful to know that his ASPCA insurance will help pay the bill. He has had to spend nites on intravenous twice and the charges have been reviewed fairly and promptly. My appreciation goes to ASPCA .
