Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Swallowed a Bone

Bacardi is a young dog who recently needed some expensive veterinary treatment. His owners fed him some meat, and he must have gotten so excited about the delicious smells that he chomped down the entire thing, bones and all! Unfortunately, swallowing the bones landed him a trip to the vet hospital and he needed surgery to remove them.

What is also interesting about this particular claim is that this was a free trial policy. This just goes to show, that pet insurance can be beneficial, even with free trial policies!
