Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Overeating

Hooligan the 6-year-old mixed-breed dog acted her name when she got into a lot of food. Hooligan managed to eat several granola bars and Power Bars leading to overeating and quite the belly ache. She was taken to the emergency veterinary hospital where she received IV fluids and medication. Then she was transferred to her regular vet hospital for Xrays to check out her insides.

We hope she is feeling much better now and stays away from the granola bars in the future!
