Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Entropion

Molson the dog has been dealing with eye problems for the past year and a half including Entropion issues with both eyes for the last three months. He recently had surgery to fix the issue and it was not cheap, but luckily his owner had pet insurance to cover most of the costs.

Entropion is an eyelid condition in which the eyelids or eyelashes grow inward causing the lashes to rub against the eyes. It is very irritating for the animal and may lead to decreased vision if it is left untreated. Fortunately, this condition is not life-threatening and most cases can be surgically corrected. Learn more about Entropion at our pet health problems guide.
