Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Osetochondritis Dissecans

This week’s claim of the week is for a dog that was recently treated for OCD. Unlike the familiar human condition, obsessive compulsive disorder, the condition that affects our pets stands for Osteochondritis Dissecans.

Reggie is a young Chocolate Labrador Retriever that experienced a soft tissue injury and was diagnosed with OCD on his right hock. He received treatment including surgery, medications, and a harness and sling for recovery.

Pet insurance claim amount: $2,516.57
Deductible applied: -$22.00
Exam fee: -$0.00
10% co-pay: -$249.46
Trupanion repaid: $2,245.11

This condition may occur in either the front or hind legs which is why pet insurance makes sense. It can provide good reassurance that you’ll be covered should your pet come down with a condition that is expensive to treat!
