Yes...Pet Insurance
pain in the butt to get...annoying to pay each month
but get it anyway.
My dog recently ran away. I thought that only bad dogs ran away and didn't come when called. Apparently not. He was in the park and got spooked.

He took off running in blind panic. He can hit 30mph on a slow day. Usain Bolt couldn't have caught him.

We found him the next day...hit by a car.

Got him to the Vets. His bills came to $11,000. He had a tear in his diaphragm which means his liver and spleen and stuff was in his chest cavity. He had a collapsed lung. His right femur was broken into 3 pieces. :(

Thankfully because of insurance we should be able raise our portion of about $3,000 thanks to the incredible generosity of friends and strangers.

Here are a few pictures.


We would have brought him flowers but he likes his pumpkin dog more.

So sorry that Roux get hurt, but glad he is on the road to recovery. I also love pet insurance. When my girl was 2 she had a horrible accident and loss the use of her front right leg. Because of the insurance I was able to take her to specialists, Her leg never did heal but two years of all kinds of therapy and 3 different specialists would have set me back over 15,000.00. I did have to put the money out up front but I did get a portion of that back. SO I really love insurance.

Oh I feel so bad for Roux and you! I am so delighted you had pet insurance!!! Our little houla's vet bills came to over 4,000 due to a liver failure and it paid 90% of the bill; ASPCA. At the cost of about a buck a day it gives us such peace of mind! I hope Roux gets to go home soon. What kind of dog is Roux??? I sit a lab??? Such a sweet face.
