The ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance program will host the ultimate Dogsgiving this year, making Thanksgiving more pet friendly.
The company launched a giveaway for one winner to be awarded five dog Thanksgiving meals and toys and the opportunity to pick one animal shelter to receive a $10,000 donation from the ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance program.
The ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance program is raising awareness through this giveaway of the increasing veterinary care costs and the importance of pet insurance to help provide the vet care pets need in case of toxic food ingestion, which is common around Thanksgiving. With 42 percent of pet owners saying a vet bill of $999 or less would cause them to go into debt, pet insurance helps to cover the eligible veterinary bill and provides peace of mind if your pet gets injured or sick.
- 5 Thanksgiving meals, suitable for dogs, containing a turkey meatloaf, loaded white potatoes, roasted butternut squash, a Gobble Gobble cake, and a Thanksgiving cookie.
- Thanksgiving themed toys for each of 5 furry friends.
- A $10,000 donation to an animal shelter of your choice.
- The giveaway opens on November 6 (following announcement on social media) and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on November 15, 2023.
- The winner will be selected at random on November 16, 2023.
- You must live in the United States (not available in FL, NY, or Puerto Rico).
- You must be 18+ in age.
“As a veterinarian, it’s not uncommon to care for pets that become very ill after eating inappropriate foods, either given as treats or those that pets ingested from holiday dinner tables while their owners weren’t looking,” said Wendy Hauser, DVM and Special Advisor to the ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance program. “We want to ensure your dog is healthy and protected in case this happens this year so they can live a happy, healthy, and long life. Providing them with human food that’s less likely to upset their GI system and a few fun toys to distract them from your holiday meal is the perfect way to do so.”
Each year, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center sees an increase in calls of potential pet toxicity related to Thanksgiving meals. If you suspect your pet has been exposed to any hazardous substances, please contact your veterinarian, or call the Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435. If your pet has a sensitive stomach or medical conditions that require a specific diet, avoid dietary changes such as introducing new foods or snacks without consulting your veterinarian first.
