Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cat Swallowed a Door Stop

Button the 1-year-old cat is the spotlight of this week’s claim of the week. This silly kitty’s recent veterinary visit was because she swallowed a door stop! With new kittens and puppies, it is important to keep a close watch when they explore or play with small objects because they can easily be swallowed.

Button spent two days at the veterinary clinic where she received X-rays and ultimately needed surgery to remove the foreign object. She is still recovering from surgery should be recovering well!

Total claim amount: $1,649.36
Deductible applied: -$1000.00
Ineligible costs (exam fees, food): -$80.70
10% co-insurance: -$56.87
Trupanion repaid: $511.79
