Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cat attacked by raccoon

Poor Tiga the 4-year-old cat recently had a run-in with a raccoon, leaving him with many wounds and a trip to the vet. The poor kitty was hospitalized for 5 days before he could go home and rest. His care included medication, fluids, anesthesia and wound cleaning. We are hoping that Tiga has a quick and smooth recovery.

If you live in an area with wildlife such as raccoon, coyotes, wolves, etc. then it is important to monitor your pet when letting them outside. Fortunately Tiga is insured and his owner could get him all the necessary treatment without worrying about cost.

Total claim amount: $1,692.12
Deductible applied: -$0.00
Ineligible costs (exam fees, grooming, nail trim, 50% RX diet): -$144.22
10% co-insurance: -$154.79
Trupanion repaid: $1,393.11
