Respect Your Cat Day: March 28th, 2020
We love our cats — but it might feel like…
About two years ago, Ladybug became infected with some significant malady. She went downhill very fast, losing energy. Her face began to swell. At one point she didn’t even look like our dog anymore! She clearly needed to be hospitalized. The Animal Hospital took good care of her but her infection was so severe that they had to hospitalize her for four days. She almost didn’t make it. The resultant bill was $1,600.00. Fortunately, my PetFirst policy covered a good portion of that.
We never really consider the value of insurance when things are “fine”. Obviously, insurance only comes in to play in times of strife. Needless to say, when Ladybug took a turn for the worse, I was very happy to have PetFirst behind me. Ladybug has since made a full recovery and, knock on wood, has been just fine ever since.
This was a valuable lesson and I will always ensure my pets are covered to the fullest extent through PetFirst. Here is a picture of Ladybug, happy and healthy!
