Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Dog Fell Down Stairs

Poor Caesar the 5-year-old Boston Terrier recently took a spill down the stairs which resulted in a broken elbow. Caesar went to the veterinary hospital where he stayed for three days receiving care and giving him a bit of time to recover.

Caesar’s veterinary care included Xrays to view and assess the injury. The elbow injury required anesthesia and surgical repair. Caesar is recovering at home and we hope that he can get back to being his bouncy Boston Terrier self in no time.

This story is a great example of how pet insurance can come in handy because you never know when an accident might happen.
