Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Broken Leg


Jane the kitten is just 8 1/2 months old and recently had to make a serious trip to the emergency veterinary clinic. Jane was up on the counter one day when a loud sound spooked her. The sound caused her to fall off and break her leg!

She was taken to the vet immediately where X-rays were taken to determine the severity. The surgery to repair her leg included a plate and screws.

Fortunately, Jane is young and still has her whole life ahead of her. She has already gotten her stitches out and is healing well!

Total claim amount: $3,267.00
Deductible applied: -$300
Exam fees: -$85.00
10% co-insurance: -$288.20
Trupanion repaid: $2,593.80

Thank you to Robin for letting us share Jane’s story!

    That’s our girl! Janeway (we call her Jane) is a silly, happy, lovable kitty, with loads of personality. Thank you to Trupanion for helping us take care of our kitten. She’s doing great, and loves to play with her doggie pal, Little Man!
