Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Hepatic Lipidosis

Many people think that cats (especially indoor ones) have no need for pet insurance because they are not at risk of ever getting hurt. While it may be true that their risk of accidents is lower, there is no way to predict what kinds of illnesses they may get.

Shadow the cat was recently diagnosed with Hepatic Lipidosis. She needed intensive treatment including a week’s stay at the vet and a (not cheap, I might add) series of medications. Fortunately, her owner had her insured with Trupanion and was able to opt for the best possible veterinary care.

Pet insurance claim amount: $6,740.82
Deductible applied: $0.00
10% co-pay: -$674.08
