My 3 yo retriever grabbed a shish kabob with uncooked meat & swallowed it whole before he even landed back on the ground. The shish kabob sharp stick was 8 inches long & now in his stomach. Within 90 minutes, the stick was fished out of his stomach successfully under anesthesia late at night. Total bill $1800. AKC insurance sent me a check for $1300 within 10 days. Without any hassle. I would do a commercial for AKC's service: prompt & very reasonable reimbursement.
