Out of 10

I am not one to complain online about things. As a matter of fact, I do not think I have ever written a review about a business before, pleased or un-pleased. We enrolled our Italian Greyhound puppy in TruPanion, due to the fact that IG's are famous for breaking legs and we were worried with our puppy being as silly and as fast as he is, he may end up breaking a leg, which as you know, can cost thousands of dollars to repair. In October, our puppy ate some plastic from our window blinds which caused him some diarrhea and vomiting. We took him to the vet were they ran some tests and blood work. All came back negative for any type of bacteria or infection. He passed the plastic the next day and was fine. The vet concluded it was caused by the plastic and no further tests needed to be conducted. In December, our puppy became extremely ill. He had some type of bacterial infection (probably picked up from Petsmart because they are FILTHY, but that is whole other issue). Long story short, the tests, medicine, and care ended up costing almost $1400. We submitted a claim for reimbursment to TruPanion and it was denied becuase they said the December incident was a pre-existing condition, which is absolutely ridiculous. How is eating plastic and having a bacterial infection the same thing? We had our vet write TWO letters to them explaining how one was caused by the injestion of the plastic and one by a bacteria. They denied the claim again coming back and saying this time
