Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Near Drowning

Poppy is a 1-year-old Cairn Terrier who recently had a scary experience with nearly drowning. Unfortunately, the claim doesn’t provide details about what exactly happened, but luckily he was able to make it to the emergency veterinarian for treatment.

Poppy lives in the southern US where it is warm so it is likely that he may have fallen into a pool. This claim is an important example of the unexpected accidents that can occur with pets. It highlights why it’s best to always be overly cautious, especially with young puppies and kittens who are still learning about their surroundings.

Total claim amount: $1,769.00
Deductible applied: -$204.75*
Exam fees: -$70.00
10% co-insurance: -$149.42
Trupanion repaid: $1,344.83

*This is the remainder of a $250 deductible for this condition.
