“I adopted my cat ‘Esme’ in January 2012 and took RSPCA Pet Insurance not long after (even though I was told by a very-thorough Vet check that Esme was in great health). In October of the same year, we noticed that Esme wasn’t really eating and was developing a lump on her back thigh. Within 24 hours, she got worse so we started to panic and rushed her to the Vet to find out my naughty, little Esme was in a fight and ended up with a very large abscess on her back thigh.
She went in for immediate surgery and had the abscess drained. At the time, money was the last thing on my mind so paying the surgery upfront and for her post-op visits weren’t noticed until I received my credit card bill the next month. Then the weight of that debt really stressed me. In total, I had paid approximately $1500 for the surgery and post-op visits which is money I really couldn’t spare.
After filing my claim from RSPCA Pet Insurance, I must admit it was a HUGE weight lifted from my shoulders as I got around 80% back. I am very thankful for the quick process of my claim and the funds were received within days of posting my claim.
Esme has since been grounded and not allowed outside after dark but she has definitely returned to her healthy, happy self.
