Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Swallowed Squeaker

Vybe border collie dog grass pet insurance trupanionMany of us dog owners have been there: You hand a brand new squeaky plush toy to your pup who delightfully accepts it. *Squeaksqueaksqueaksqueak* is all you hear for the next 60 seconds. Then everything goes quiet. Your dog uses his/her “saw” teeth to get through the soft fabric and pull out the hidden treasure, the squeaker!

Vybe the 4-year-old Border Collie recently experienced a similar situation resulting in her accidental swallowing of the squeaker.

The poor pup had to make an emergency trip to the veterinary clinic. Veterinarians performed exploratory surgery on Vybe and she has been home quietly healing since.

“The first few days were quite stressful post surgery but she is now on day 10 and doing well,” said Vybe’s owner Ainsley. This agility dog is looking forward to a full recovery so she can get back to being out and active!

Total claim amount: $1,873.92
Deductible applied: -$50.00
Exam fees: -$83.00
10% co-insurance: -$174.09
Trupanion repaid: $1,566.83

The claim process is fast and efficient and I appreciate the concern that Trupanion has for my dogs – I do not feel like just another number!!

Thank you Ainsley for allowing us to share this story and we wish a quick recovery to Vybe!
