Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Dog Attack

Poor Noodles the mixed-breed dog was recently attacked by another dog, leaving him with an abdominal wound as well as multiple bite wounds. He is just 10 pounds which makes it hard for such a small dog to hold his own if any type of altercation should occur. Fortunately, his pet parents have him insured so he was able to get immediate care.

Noodles’ veterinary treatment included a trip to the emergency veterinary clinic where he received radiographs. Noodles needed surgery, monitoring, and IV fluid therapy. The little guy spent five days in the hospital receiving medical attention.

Total claim amount: $8,881.40
Deductible applied: -$500.00
Exam fees: -$117.50
10% co-insurance: -$826.39
Trupanion repaid: $7,437.51
