Do Boulderites Need Pet Health Insurance?

April 18th, 2024

When Zamboni, our loved Boulder cat, was seven years old, we found her barely responsive laying on a landing of the main stairway. Her breath had a sweet odor. She was, we learned, diabetic. We found her in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis. Diabetic Ketoacidosis, or DKA is a result of uncontrolled diabetes, can be fatal, and symptoms include the “sicky sweet odor.”  How much is your loved pet dog, cat, turtle or bird worth?
