Pet insurance ensures survival of injured poodle

A poodle has recovered from injury thanks to pet insurance.
A dog owner from Reading has reason to be grateful for purchasing pet insurance, after her poodle required expensive veterinary treatment.

Ten-year-old George was playing outside when he slipped on ice and crashed into some French doors, snapping his spinal cord in the process and sustaining internal bleeding.

The dog required surgery to repair the injury and remove a disc from his spine, which resulted in a bill for over £5,600.

Fortunately, George's owner, Helen Stone, had taken out pet insurance with Petplan and the insurer agreed to cover the cost of his veterinary treatment.

"George spent three weeks in hospital and has regular visits from a physiotherapist to help him learn to walk again. I couldn't believe how badly he had been hurt just from a slip in the garden," Ms Stone revealed.

"Thank goodness George was insured otherwise I'm not sure George's recovery would have been possible and he may not have survived," she added.

Petplan recently advised dog owners not to give their animals chocolate, as this can be poisonous and may lead to unwanted pet insurance claims.ADNFCR-2196-ID-19631935-ADNFCR ADNFCR-2196-ID-19464191-ADNFCR
