Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Foreign Body Ingestion – Corn Husk

Charlie, the American Bulldog puppy was exploring the trash can and earned himself a trip to the vet! He swallowed a corn husk and had to be rushed to receive emergency veterinary care.

The veterinarian took radiographs and ultrasounds of Charlie’s abdomen. He also needed intravenous fluids, medications, and an endoscopy.

Because his owners have him insured, they can rush him to the vet any time this little puppy swallows objects that he shouldn’t be eating without worrying about the costs.
