Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Broken Leg

Imagine for a moment that you are a dog. Not just any dog, but a Trupanion-insured dog. That means life is pretty good: you’ve got an owner who adores you and gives you lots of love, you get to sleep and play and go on walks. You love your owner and even the mini versions of your owner, despite the fact that they sometimes dress you up in silly clothes or tug on your tail and ears.

One day, you’re hanging out with the mini humans when one of them sits on you and, OUCH, that hurt!

Poor Matilda the almost-1-year-old English Bulldog pup recently made an unplanned emergency veterinary visit due to a broken leg because a child sat on her. Matilda’s owner filed a pre-approval form to find out in advance the amount of the veterinary invoice that would be covered. The emergency hospital provided a quote based on hospitalization, radiographs, anesthesia, fluids, medication, surgery, screws and plates.

We wish the sweet pup a smooth surgery and quick recovery!
