Family Members Deserve Protection

Sky & Rowdy:
My puppy Rowdy was about 10 weeks old when he got into my bathroom bin and ate everything. I called the vet and they told me to bring him in straight away. Sadly, there was nothing they could do so they told me to contact the local animal hospital. I took him straight there and for over 5 hours they made him vomit to try and bring up the stuff in his belly. They ended up getting most of the contents out (and a little more!). Turns out he had also eaten a caterpillar, a bobby pin and my loofa. The whole ordeal cost around $2,000 and because we didn’t have pet insurance we had to dip into our savings. We really regret not getting insurance sooner - it was foolish to think we wouldn't need it.
Nathan & Perry:
Our Bull Arab, Perry, managed to get his leather collar off and chewed it up, swallowing a 10cm length of it that blocked his stomach. We noticed he wasn't eating properly and seemed to be in pain so we took him to our local vet. X-rays were taken, and the collar was discovered as it had studs in it. It was too big to pass naturally so Perry had to have surgery, which was done the next day. If it hadn't been for our pet insurance it would have cost us $4,500! Luckily it only cost us a nominal excess and we had our boy back to his normal boisterous self in no time.
Angie & Pickle:
One day I collected Pickle from doggy day-care and noticed he was licking his very swollen and red paw. It was clear we needed to head to the local vet before they closed so he could receive the best possible care - and because we were insured, there was no stress about the costs. Thankfully we quickly made it to the vet, who identified his bee sting, treated him promptly and ensured I knew what to expect for Pickle’s at-home care for the next few days.
