Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Swallowed Plastic Bag

This week’s featured pet insurance claim is for Steve, the 3-year-old mixed-breed dog. Steve seems to be a bit of a mischievous dog because he recently got into some trouble with a plastic bag. Unfortunately, Steve swallowed the bag and it got caught up in his intestines, causing internal damage.

The poor pup needed to go in for surgery and spend two nights at the clinic for recovery. We are sending well wishes and hope that he’s back to his peppy self in no time!

Total claim amount: $3,800.83
Deductible applied: $111.25 (the remainder of the $500 deductible for this incident)
Exam fees: -$48.40
Recheck: -$175.00
Unrelated charges: -$120.00
10% co-insurance: -$334.62
Trupanion repaid: $3,011.56
