Petfirst Shares Top Claims For


Jeffersonville, IN April 23, 2014

Ranging from plant poisoning to a fractured molar, pet owners are submitting pet insurance claims for veterinary expenses early in the year.

?PetFirst has seen an increase in claims for 2014,? said Fran Mitchell, Manager of Claims for the pet insurance company. ?The claims are similar to previous years with illnesses being common, but also an increase in accidents which can be more costly to treat.?

By having pet insurance, these pet owners can focus on nursing their pet back to health while resting assured the pet insurance policy they chose will help protect their wallet.

Here are a few claims submitted that best demonstrate the benefits of pet insurance from PetFirst:

Smokey, a seven-year-old Newfoundland dog, became suddenly ill. The family suspected he had ingested something that became lodged for a temporary amount of time, which also created other problems. Eventually he was diagnosed with Enteritis, an infection of the gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms for pets can include the sudden onset of vomiting and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration particularly in pets under one year or older than 10 years. Other symptoms in dogs can include rapid pulse, fever, apathy and depression. Smokey?s treatment included hospitalization, exploratory surgery along with x-rays, IV fluids and medication. Thanks to Smokey?s Lifetime pet insurance policy, with no per incident limits, PetFirst reimbursed his family $ 4,920 for veterinary expenses.

Arigato, an eight-year-old Manx breed cat, was treated for plant poisoning after eating parts of a Lily house plant. The leaves and petals of a Lily plant are poisonous and can cause kidney failure if left untreated. Arigato spent three days in the hospital under the watchful eye of the veterinarian. During that time the cat received IV fluids and medications. Arigato?s pet insurance policy was able to reimburse the pet owner $ 1,859 for the hospital stay and the veterinary expenses.

Apollo, a one-year old domestic cat, and his sibling were playing with the cat tree playhouse when it fell over and pinned Apollo underneath. In the fall, Apollo fractured his molar requiring an exam by the veterinarian, sedation, dental x-rays, surgical extraction and medicine to start his road to recovery. Fortunately, Apollo?s pet insurance policy reimbursed the family $ 499 of their out-of-pocket expenses.

Pet parents have several choices in tailoring the pet insurance plan that best fits their pet?s needs with PetFirst including selecting the reimbursement percentage, deductible amount and coverage limit.

Back Pain Not Just A


Back pain is a growing problem that is afflicting millions of people around the world. If you are one of the many who suffers from a sore, aching back that makes it hard to function, don’t despair. This article can teach you some simple methods that you can use to relieve your back pain.

Make sure you’re getting enough exercise. Exercise is essential to keeping the muscles in your back and your abs strong and healthy. If your muscles are too weak, you’ll be putting a lot more stress on your bones. Stronger muscles help take some of that stress for themselves and save the bones.

Make sure to always remember to stretch before you attempt any sort of exercise or physical activity. Stretching allows your back to get prepared for the activity to come. Forgetting this important step can lead to serious pain later on and that is what we want to avoid.

Use safe lifting practices. If you lift by bending your knees, you transfer the stress of the lift from your spine to the muscles of your legs. This can reduce the incidence of spasms and reduce the pain that goes along with repetitive lifting motions. If you feel a strain in your back while lifting, you are probably doing it wrong.

Believe it or not, sleep is actually an essential part of healing from back injuries. Your body does most of its repair work at night when you are relaxed and sleeping and can dedicate all of your energy to healing. If you are experiencing chronic back pain, then good sleep is as important as good medicine.

Maintain proper posture at all times to alleviate back pain. Many adults have pain from being hunched over and not even realizing it. When you are sitting or standing, make sure that your back is extremely straight. It might feel uncomfortable at first. Although your body will get used to it, and your back will thank you later.

If you are having back pain while you working on the computer try this, make sure arms are comfortable. Raising your arms or extending them on a keyboard that is placed too high can cause back strain. Adjust your keyboard to a comfortable level to reduce the strain on your upper back.

One area of your life that can be affected by chronic back pain is your sex life. If left covered up, you are not allowing your partner to be understanding of your back pain. Your partner may think another reason is putting a strain on you guys’ sex life. Therefore, it is imperative to be open and honest and look for ways for your back pain not to disrupt your sex life.

If you have to be in the sitting position for a large portion of your day, be sure that your chair has a comfortable pad in the back. This will help give your back the support that it needs, which in turn, will help to prevent any unnecessary back pains.

Avoid back pain while breastfeeding by feeding your child in a chair instead of a couch. If you don’t sit up straight, you could be straining your back while you are breastfeeding, causing pain. Additionally, it helps if you place a supportive pad behind the lower part of your back while breastfeeding yor baby.

Treat yourself. Buy a new pillow, not for your head, but for your knees. One of the best ways to relieve lower back pain is to sleep with a pillow between your thigh and knee area.

Riding in a car can cause back pain since we’re constantly in a car daily. Adjust your seat properly so you are driving with good posture.

Stretch your muscles while they are still warm. Post exercise, take the time to stretch those muscles!

Doing the simple things can help you alleviate back pain, like simply taking your time when you stand up or get out of bed. Sudden movements and jerking motions can jar the muscles and even cause discs to slip and slide around. Be cognizant of your movements and take a little time when getting up.

Some back pain is tolerable and is not the sign of anything actually wrong with your body, so a great remedy to alleviate it is to simply take your mind off of it. Soak in a warm tub or listen to some music with mild back pain until it passes. Dwelling on it may make it worse.

Have an acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture has been done for years to relieve back pain, and it has worked for many sufferers. The Chinese believe that back pain is a sign of blocked energy, and that the needles release the energy and therefore help back pain. Whether you believe in blocked energy or not, the truth is that acupuncture might help you.

To decrease your back pain, invest in a LCD monitor. LCD monitors have much less glare and reflections than their CRT cousins. That glare is the cause of a lot of bad posture habits while people hunch over to read their computer screens. It may be costly to buy an LCD monitor, but it is well worth it for your health!

Each time you sit for extended periods of time, you are placing your back at risk. A special back cushion that provides good support for aching backs may be helpful. These pillows can be purchased at a pharmacy, or online. There are many types of pads available, and you should keep looking until you discover one that’s a good fit for you.

To alleviate some of your back pain, make sure to shift the weight of any heavy items you are carrying from one side of your body to the other. If you continue to carry the items on one side of your body, it could stress your back muscles and cause you some pain later.

Don’t let your aching back get you down. As you have seen, there are proven, tested ways to alleviate back pain without necessarily having to resort to strong medications or surgeries. By making use of these techniques, you will feel better almost immediately. Try your best to execute the tips you’ve learned from this article, and soon your back pain may be a thing of the past.

Twigo Pet Id Tags Support


Hoboken, NJ April 18, 2014

Twigo Pet ID Tag is celebrating National Pet ID Week, April 20-26th, by offering our Wholesale Customers a BUY 1 GIVE 1 Promotion. For every tag purchased, the equivalent number of tags will be sent to their Local Animal Shelter of choice.

National Pet ID Week was started to help improve the return rate of lost pets and reduce the number of pets taken to shelters.

An ASPCA research on Tag Retention in 2010-2011 concluded that 80% of pet owners said that a pet ID tag was “extremely important”. Yet only 33% of surveyed pet owners reported that their current pet wears an ID tag all the time. ASPCA provided ID tags for vets and shelters for the pet?s owner. Follow up concluded that 73% these pets continue to wear the ID tag and 89% with the newly adopted pets.

A Twigo Pet ID Tag, is one of the simplest tags on the market to provide every pet at the time of adoption or after a veterinarian visit. Twigo tags require no engraving and are instantly personalize-able with a ballpoint pen ? simply write, boil and wear. The tags self-attach and are completely silent, ideal for those who dislike the jingling noise and remove their pet?s tags while inside the house.

The best prevention is to use more than one identifier from the start. Three identifiers are best: a personalized ID tag, a local registration tag and a microchip.

While microchips are permanent and reliable, they are invisible and can only be read by a Vet or Rescue group with a reading scanner. Visible pet ID tags are the fastest method of getting lost pets safely reunited with their families.

ID tags should have the owner?s name or pet?s name and phone number.

????Keep a pet identification tag on your pet at all times
????Make sure owner contact information is up to date
????Have a cell phone listed as a primary contact number
????Any serious health issue or medications, if possible

Twigo Pet ID tags are available in 4 fun styles and 3 colors each.

SIMPLE + DURABLE: The easiest, quietest and friskiest

SILENT: No jangling, jingling or clanking.

EASY TO PERSONALIZE: Simply write, boil and wear.

EASY TO ATTACH: Slip loop attachment to any collar.

[Paw-Proofed] Lightweight and EASY to clean!

Twigo LLC is on a mission to help ensure all pets wear an ID tag all the time. Pet identification is the BEST PREVENTION. ID’s dramatically increases the security of your pet family member.
