Brian is turning 5 this September and is a lovely, cheerful pure bred Labrador that is truly a member of our family.
We were surprised when the vet found a very unusual abnormality in his stomach, something that was a rare, almost unique case. Adhesions usually appear after surgeries or traumas, but neither was the case. Our vet said he probably could be born with it, or it could spontaneously occur due to unknown reasons.
The surgery costed a fortune. We never thought about any alternative (bad) solutions, we would have paid regardless - without Petplan it would have been a huge impact on our family budget.
Fortunately, Brian recovered quickly. He's back to his cheerful self once again, with a pretty scary looking wound!
