Meet Stanley – champion snorer and allergy boy | #PetTale

Stanley is a three-year-old boxer. I got him when he was about 10 weeks old. He is a typical wild crazy boxer who absolutely loves to destroy beds and anything with stuffing in it. He is a snoring champion and loves playing with other dogs.

My pet insurance provider is Pet Insurance Australia (PIA). I took out insurance because boxers are known to be prone to cancers and growths, cardiac issues and hip issues. Insurance was also recommended at puppy pre-school.

Stanley is basically allergic to life! He is allergic to dust, several tree and grass pollens, cockroaches and a variety of other everyday things. I tried many natural remedies but ended up having to go and see Dr Danielle Hoolahan, a vet dermatologist, to have him tested. He now takes Apoquel daily and has injections regularly in an attempt to build up his resistance to his allergens. This is a very expensive undertaking and I could not afford it without the insurance coverage. It is also comforting to know I have the insurance if my crazy boy hurts himself or needs other veterinary procedures for health problems. 

I often recommend PIA as I find they are very easy to deal with and the claim process is easy.
