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.

🏥Are there any claim limits?
🏥Approx. how much you pay per month, what is your deductible?

PET INSURANCE? I am adding this to Blu's account because Bear does not have that many followers yet. Wondering if those who follow Blu's account can offer advice on PET INSURANCE Should I or shouldn’t I? As many of you know our previous Dane Blu had many many health issues. We did not have insurance. Now I am psycho worried about bear if he he even looks tired or sneezes or plays tug of war. I want to protect every little wrinkle on that face. With Bear now is the time to decide if I’m going to buy health insurance. I am Leary because I have heard from some that Pet insurance has denied coverage on wobblers because it was genetic and they only covered “accidents” nothing genetic. Seems to me that most of the BIG issues that happened to Blu could have been considered genetic: wobblers and Addison’s disease. I would love to hear from others that have Pet insurance or had it in the past, name of the insurance and what have they covered or not covered? Any issues or success stories. Those that have wobblers or Addison’s disease, was it covered or not? DM me or reply hear. Thanks for everyone’s thoughts and/or advice. #petinsurance#bluegreatdane#thegentlegiants#greatdanemoments#dailygreatdane#bluegreatdanepuppy#greatdanephotography#greatdanesunlimited#greatdanesunleashed#wobblerssyndrome#addisonsdisease

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)
Exciting announcement!! Wow what a day... as some of you have already guessed, I have teamed up with the guys over at Admiral Pet Insurance to bring you some super easy ways to keep your pooch in tip top shape! Check out the #montylovesadmiral hashtag that my new colleagues used when they met me today... just call me Admiral Monty from now on 😂😂🐾🐾
