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.
