Corn cobs and Berners don't mix!

Out of 10

Murfy, my 27 month Berner ingested three 1" chunks of corn cob and they had to be surgically removed. He was hospitalized for two days and the final bill came to slightly more than $4000. of which Trupanion covered $3022. (We have $500 deductible.) The vet preauthorized the claim so we were not forced to pay the total amount upfront and then wait for reimbursement. The initial exam and diagnosis took place September 11 and the cheque was in the mail to the vet by Sept 16. In my opinion this was exceptional service and gave me great peace of mind to know Murfy was taken care of no matter what the treatment and cost was not an issue.
