I’ve been a member of the PetFirst household since 2015 however like most of us do with our insurance coverage, I forgot about how helpful it’s to have protection.
My 7 12 months previous canine, Lily, had not been herself for a number of weeks. We have been making weekly vet journeys for a month for fluids, checks, and medicines. Then, the week of Thanksgiving, she stopped consuming her meals and he or she was consuming little or no water. The day earlier than Thanksgiving, Lily choked up some blood and that’s after I stopped all the Thanksgiving prep and took Lily to her vet. Lily was hospitalized for 2 days with no enchancment. After an extended dialogue together with her veterinarian, we got 2 decisions: an costly exploratory surgical procedure or put Lilly down.
After this information, my household and I have been extraordinarily confused. Not solely have been we anxious about Lily, however my husband and I have been additionally anxious about how a lot Lily’s surgical procedure would cost-especially throughout the holidays!
Even although the surgical procedure would value over $2,000, nobody was able to say goodbye to Lily. We made the choice for her to bear the exploratory surgical procedure. They came upon Lily had eaten a tape measure however by some miracle, no penetration or punctures to her abdomen lining or intestines had occurred!
Lily is recovering from her surgical procedure fantastically! I used to be capable of file her declare for $four,709.77 and PetFirst reimbursed us $four,091.82! I had all however forgotten about my pet insurance coverage and by no means thought I would want to make use of it. Now, I’m so grateful I made the choice years in the past to spend money on pet insurance coverage, I worth it greater than ever! PetFirst actually got here by means of for me this vacation season and everyone seems to be so excited to have a cheerful and wholesome Lily again at residence!
