Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Broken Tooth

Trupanion Pet Insurance claim of the week Husky-mix Jake and broken toothJake the 9-year-old Husky-mix is a curious boy who is always looking for treats! He often picks up boxes and carries them around just in case there may be tasty snacks inside. Well, just before Christmas, he set down a box when his owner noticed blood on the box. It turned out that he had broken an incisor!

Jake made a trip to the veterinary dental clinic where he needed surgery to extract the broken tooth.

Fortunately, Jake is feeling much better since surgery.

Total claim amount: $1,374.17
Deductible applied: -$150.00
Exam fees: -$0

My husband and I are so grateful to have Trupanion. We tell everyone about your company :)

Thank you so much to Jamie for letting us share Jake’s unique story!
