Did you know that pet visits often spark good memories of a person's own pets? Dogs often can reach people and children who have withdrawn from the world. It's been suggested by science that petting a dog can lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote healing.

Cayman Gets Castrated
He was prescribed Carprofen for pain and inflammation which I can give to him starting tomorrow morning. In the meantime, we are keeping him calm and quiet as possible and letting him enjoy his 'get well' presents- a woolly soccer ball squeaky toy and a bag of all natural, human grade Bac'N' Cheez mini biscuits by Old Mother Hubbard (the sister company to the Wellness brand dog food he is on now). Get well soon my wittleman!!
Now to see how great my pet insurance is. I signed up for Pets Best pet insurance last month and this will be the first claim I am filing since obtaining the policy. I had Dr. Bradley fill out all the required information on the claims form and I got a copy of my receipt showing how much I paid ($219.17... eek!) and how much I am claiming. So far I am doing everything as instructed. I just hope they don't hassle me. So many insurance companies have that issue. What they cover is excellent and the rates are good but its the ease of filing claims and getting a timely reimbursement that suck. So here is my first experience with the company- let's hope its a good one!
