The 8 year old pit bull apparently thought it might be fun to gobble up a blanket…but his mom Jayme sure didn’t agree.
She called the incident “scary and stressful” – not just because it was life-threatening for Calvin if he didn’t have surgery to remove it – but because it also threw her an unwelcome financial curveball.
Fortunately both Calvin and Jayme lucked out when they went to Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty. The hospital’s amazing veterinary team saved Calvin’s life.
And because the hospital extends in-house payment plans managed by VetBilling, Jayme was given the option to spread the expense over time in payments that were comfortably affordable for her budget. She chose a payment plan with 8 bi-weekly payments, so Calvin’s foreign body removal surgery was paid off in just 3 months.
We’re happy to report that Calvin is doing just fine now…and hopefully he’s sworn off blanket-eating.
