DECEMBER’S PETFIRST PET INSURANCE CLAIM OF THE MONTH
$1,858.69 paid to the family of Bumble, a Rottweiler from Indiana
Bumble, a 10 year old Rottweiler, woke his mommy up one morning at 4 am to go out, which was unusual. His pet parent then noticed that he had thrown up twice, again not normal. Bumble then went back to bed where he panted heavily for a bit before settling down and refused to eat breakfast. This was very unusual. Off to the vet his owner took him where they observed he had a fever, his abdomen was painful to touch and slightly distended, and his gums were white. One ultrasound later and they were scheduling surgery. The next morning Bumble had his spleen and a 3 pound tumor removed. Then came 4 days of stressful waiting for results of the biopsy (hemagiosarcoma was strongly suspected). Against the odds, the diagnosis came back as a hematoma, not cancer! Bumble’s family was thankful for the positive diagnosis and their PetFirst pet insurance policy which reimbursed them 90% of the vet costs.
