Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Swallowed Ear Plug

Dogs aren’t the only animals that swallow foreign objects. This week’s claim of the week features a cat who swallowed an ear plug!

Truffle is a 2-year-old Ragdoll cat who apparently has a taste for objects other than food. Recently, her owners discovered that she was not willing to eat, and later vomited 4 ear plugs. They weren’t sure how many more might be in her belly so they took her to the vet clinic for an endoscopy. Truffle then needed surgery to remove the foreign object.

Total claim amount: $1,414.61
Deductible applied: $0 ($100 deductible met for endoscopy invoice)
Exam fees: -$57.20
10% co-insurance: -$135.74
Trupanion repaid: $1,221.67
