Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Gastroenteritis


Every week when I comb through claim reports looking for one to feature, it’s not uncommon to scroll past various forms of gastrointestinal issues among dogs and cats. Our pets sometimes have sensitive stomachs and may vomit or experience diarrhea before we can really determine the cause. Sometimes there is a bigger underlying issue, and sometimes they just ate something that upset their tummies.

This week’s featured claim is an example of what a trip to the vet for gastroenteritis can look like.

Trudy the 3-year-old dachshund-mix was presented to the veterinary clinic where she received IV fluids, medication, and radiographs to take a look at her insides. I’m crossing my fingers that her radiographs come back looking normal!
