Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Hit By Car

Myley is a young, 5-month-old Chocolate Lab who was recently hit by a car. She suffered pulmonary contusions and a fracture to her left scapula for which she needed emergency surgery.

The poor pup spent a week at the veterinary clinic receiving treatment, medications, and monitoring. We hope that Myley recovers quickly so that she can get back to enjoying her rambunctious puppy stage of life!

Total claim amount: $8,413.84
Deductible applied: -$0.00*
Exam fees: -$132.00
10% co-insurance: -$828.18
Trupanion repaid: $7,453.66

*The $150 deductible was met with the previous bill for this condition.
