Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Raccoon Bites

This week’s featured pet insurance claim is for Sophie the 3-year-old Pit Bull who recently had a run-in with a raccoon! Raccoons can present a serious danger to your pet, especially those trying to protect baby raccoons, and it is best to try and prevent contact between your pet and any raccoons as much as possible.

Sophie was taken to the vet hospital for multiple raccoon bites. She received anesthesia for surgery, presumably to clean and stitch up her wounds. Fortunately she was clear to go home the same day to rest and recover.

We wish her a quick recovery and hope for no more wild-animal encounters!
