overcoming the obstacles

Best friend first, athlete second. As a service dog and champion agility competitor, Kismet is a fighter. From a heart murmur to epilepsy, degenerative disc disease to foreign body ingestions, she’s overcome more major medical problems than you can count on one paw. And yet she always seems to have a grin on her face and an unwavering positive spirit, according to mom Louise.

Thanks to a combination of traditional and complementary medicine, including cold laser therapy, holistic herbs and supplements, Kismet conquered her most serious opponent: chronic active hepatitis. “Because pet insurance covered all this, Kismet had a remarkable and quick recovery, way beyond expectations,” says Louise. “She’s my heart dog, and for everything I wanted to give her, the insurance was there.”
