Yesterday, we got to say goodbye and good luck to our good buddy #dagwood as he was officially discharged from the hospital. Lots of emotions happening as we get to see this dog comfortably walk across the parking lot to his van.
In emergency veterinary medicine, you rarely have a patient in the hospital for more than 3 or 4 days. Even for a stay that short, you build a bit of an emotional attachment to a patient. Dagwood was with us for over 2 weeks. It's no surprise that staff members had tears of joy in their eyes as he was discharged.
A big thank you to @briannamadia and @keithmadia for trusting us with Dagwood's care and for pushing through these last few weeks.
Another thank you to the staff @bend_animal_emergency for making all of this possible. I'm proud to work with so many excellent and skilled veterinary professionals.
Additionally, thank you to all those around the world that were flooding the skies (and our break room) with positive vibes (and food), respectively.
And finally... pet insurance can make a world of difference in the turnout of a pet's serious medical condition. Veterinary care is hindered by the cost of advanced medicine. We use all the same medical supplies as a human hospital, but charge a small fraction of what they do. Financial limitations are usually a non issue when pet insurance is involved, often for less than the cost of a cell phone bill per month. Anyone who thinks they "wouldn't put an animal through this" is vastly underestimating our ability as veterinarians to provide comfort and control pain. We can treat your pets disease. We can heal your pets condition. Just give us the chance, and get pet insurance so finances aren't a deciding factor if the time comes when you need us.
Grizzly bear snuggles to start the week 😍 One thing I always talk to new puppy owners about is pet insurance! Is your fur child covered? Why or why not?
Personally, I use Nationwide Pet Insurance for my babies, but do some research and see what the best fit is for your family! I'm here to tell you the most important thing about pet insurance is that you HAVE IT.
The way pet insurance typically works, is that you pay upfront for your bill, then your insurance company is sent a copy of the medical record, and you are reimbursed (give or take) 90% of the bill!
What does that mean for me as a veterinarian? I get to practice the BEST medicine possible because no one is stressed about not being able to afford it. When your baby needs something, I have the ability to give it to them! I don't have to worry about keeping costs down, or dealing with "Plan B" medicine, because you can't afford "Plan A." That could actually mean the difference between life and death in some cases!

Hi friends! We would love to hear what types of pet insurance our followers use; it can help those who are considering purchasing insurance for their loved ones.
🏥Does your company cover annual check-ups?
🏥Do they cover pre-existing conditions?
🏥Have you successfully filed a covered claim?
🏥Are there any claim limits?
🏥Approx. how much you pay per month, what is your deductible?
Thank you for your help! 😘
Going to the Vet is a scary thing for any bun! But did you know that rabbits are considered an exotic animal? Regular vets aren't usually trained to care for rabbits. A rabbit savvy vet is the most important thing to locate as soon as you get a rabbit!
This year, Happy had to go to the vet several times for an injury to her eye. The vet bill was scary! But Everybun deserves the best. (She is fine now!) I just found out that @nationwide insurance insures rabbits! They are the only company that does this! Believe it or not, my policy for each rabbit is $11 a month. The entire year costs less than the initial vet visit for her eye cost. Then it is a $50 deductible, and they pay 90% after that.
So, for Christmas, in addition to some fun toys and treats, my buns got insurance policies! Lol, fun huh? 🐰🌲🎅🐇 (This is not paid for in any way! I just want everyone to know about this and have the opportunity to insure their rabbits before any issues can come up)
