Jett fell ill late on a weeknight and required emergency after hour’s surgery. He was vomiting and couldn't even keep water down. After X-rays they found he had an intestinal obstruction. Surgery was finished at 3am and they found an intact paddle pop stick in his intestine. It had caused damage and a section of his intestine had to be removed.
He came home from surgery initially bright but rapidly deteriorated and had to spend another night with our local vets. They decided the next morning that he needed a higher level of care as he was incredibly ill and not recovering. I drove him 2 hours to the nearest specialist hospital where he could have 24 hour care, ultrasounds and specialists looking after him. He stayed with them for 5 days and luckily didn't need any further surgery.
To know that we were covered in such a stressful and upsetting time was a huge relief. We have claimed a few times over the years and it is always an easy process.
Petplan paid out over $6,500* for Jett’s Intestinal Foreign Body.
Jett is a huge part of our family. He is such a friendly, comical, bright and loyal boy. He truly is our best friend and we don't know what we would do without him. Thank you Petplan for making it possible to get him the care he needed to survive. Bringing him home from hospital was the best day!
