Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Acute Blindness

Poor Jed the Golden Retriever is a young 3 years old and has been diagnosed with acute blindness. His trip to the vet clinic included MRI testing, IV fluids and a spinal tap.

Blindness in dogs is not always easily noticed at home, but there are some symptoms that would suggest the pet has vision problems. The pet may bump into furniture and miss toys that are thrown to him.

Total claim amount: $3,032.01
Deductible applied: -$0.00 ($100.00 deductible already met)
Exam fees: -$0.00
10% co-insurance: -$303.20
Trupanion repaid: $2,728.81
