Miniature-Punscher Gigi Gets Sick & Has High Liver Enzymes Caused by Jerky Treats

“I have 2 Miniature-Pinscher dogs from the same litter, male & female.  They are truly my babies, and they were so small that I brought them home in my coat pockets. When a small dog gets sick, the symptoms seem to appear quickly.  Skipper was fine, but Gigi got lethargic and had diarrhea.  I immediately took her to my trusted veterinarian for tests, and she had high liver enzymes.  A recent consumer alert about jerky dog treats was on the news, so now they only get Milk Bone treats.  After medication and IV fluids, Gigi made a full recovery in a matter of weeks.  I saw tearful pet owners on the news that had lost their beloved pets due to liver failure caused by jerky treats.

After this ordeal, my claim was handled promptly by Pet First.  I received an e-mail confirming the packet of copies arrived, and a follow-up message to fax additional exam results.  I am happy to say I am very satisfied with the reimbursement and kindness of all the insurance staff.  I highly recommend this coverage for anyone’s beloved pets.”
